Just because you can't check out a winery due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, which has spread across the globe, that doesn't mean you can't take part in some truly grape times. In the comforts of your apartment, you can take part in these virtual wine tastings. Recreate your very own winery experience while you relax on the couch. All you need to do is find a tasting that speaks to your soul and enjoy as you stream any of these tasting videos.
Nowadays, it seems like more and more businesses are trying to find online ways to peak the interests of their consumers, and these wineries truly know what's up. A virtual wine tasting allows you to learn so much more about your favorite wines or discover new blends by getting a lesson from the winemakers and experts.
If you're a little worried about ordering products online during the COVID-19 pandemic, Elite Daily spoke with Elizabeth McGraw, professor and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics at Pennsylvania State University about potential risks of receiving packages. McGraw says although she wouldn't stop online shopping during this time, she would limit shopping to only the essential products, and take proper precautions. "We have no evidence of people getting infected from packages, however, given what we know about how long the virus can live on surfaces it is best to take some precautions [...] When a package arrives, use gloves to handle it and also let is sit for three days before opening," she says.
Get your whole crew involved with a wine tasting you can all agree on. You can even start a weekly tradition like Wine Wednesday, depending on when your chosen virtual wine tasting is taking place. With any of these six wine tastings to choose from, it'll feel like you're amongst the vines without ever having to leave home sweet home.
