Recruit Your Community
We are reaching out to you because of your social community that has an overlapping interest with wine. We provide free wine lectures & guided tastings through covid in order to promote physical distancing, but social connectedness. You are invited to add our events to your groups calendar to engage with your community during this increased virtual era. Please tune in Oct 8th at 7:30p ET on Youtube to see our wine lecture on Rosé and let us know if you think this is something your members would be interested in.
Veni Vini Amici is our motto which means "We gather, learn of wine, and become friends" This time may require physical distancing, but not social distancing! We would like to help you keep connected to your community and provide content to facility connectedness. Below you will find links for our Fall wine selections as well as our schedule. All of our lectures will be streamed on YouTube. We envision your group can add our lecture to your calendar of events. Your members can purchase wine from our custom wine portal at Wine Till Sold Out Alternatively, your members can pick up equivalent wine from their local shops. Everyone tunes into the same live stream. Afterwards, your moderators can host a Zoom, WebEx, Google Meetup to discuss the wine and topics. The lecture acts as an engaging ice breaker! Typical lectures are 20-30min long. We also host lectures with specific wineries like Boxwood Winery: Middleburg AVA, Va
Future winery interviews in the works: Campi Valerio Molise, Italy: Discussion on small regions breaking into the international market Dr. Frank Finger Lakes, NY: Discussion on the history of wine in America Teutonic Wine Company Portland, Or: Discussion on the recent fires of California/Oregon
Who we are About our host Stephen, @Wine_Broski, had his first introduction to wine at university where he was able to get credits for taking a wine education course! In 2018, he started a wine lecture series to build a community at his office. Since distancing guidance was given, the lectures pivoted to a virtual space to have virtually guided tastings and lectures. Stephen and his co-host Beth received their WSET II certificates, a wine certificate that verifies they know what they are talking about. Currently both are actively studying for their CSW certificate while hosting lectures. The lectures mirror the educational content of their studies which result in an engaging lecture that is more than a sip society that relies heavily on wine producer notes. The lectures dive into the geography, culture, pop-culture, history, art, and a myriad of other categories. 1.
