Category: Napa Valley Things To Do, Wine Tasting

After months of shutdowns and shelter-in-place orders to slow the spread of COVID-19, cities across California are now in various stages of reopening. Napa’s wineries, businesses, and retail establishments have also recently opened their doors to visitors. It’s possible that you and your loved ones want to be cautious and wait a bit longer before planning a summer getaway. However, not visiting a Napa winery does not mean you have to miss out on that glass of a splendid red or a luminous white.

Experience Napa’s world-class wines by signing up for a virtual wine tasting event. Enjoy exciting wines from the comfort of your home, while also supporting small-production wineries that typically rely on the tasting rooms to stay in business. You can even make it a group event by extending the virtual invite to friends and family. Here are some of the Napa wineries that let you bring a bit of wine country into your home.

  • The Clif Family Winery: Order doorstep delivery of tasting kits with their current releases, along with delicious food pairings from their artisanal products. On the scheduled event date, interact with expert wine educators as they walk you through a complete Napa Valley experience through a Zoom session.
  • Sciandri Family Vineyards: Located in the southernmost part of Napa, this boutique, family run winery produces just 800 cases of wine each year. Choose from a number of different combinations of wines, and enjoy an inside view into the winery’s history and wine stories during their online tasting session.
  • J. Cage Cellars: A boutique family winery in Sonoma, J. Cage Cellars crafts about 1500 cases annually. They produce the finest handcrafted single vineyard Pinot Noirs in Napa and put together some fantastic, tailor-made virtual tasting sessions. You can enjoy a personalized experience that caters to your group’s size, tastes, and any occasion or milestone that you are celebrating. Make the most of these fun-filled interactive sessions with wine experts to ask them anything related to wines, winemaking, wine country, and winery life.
  • Boeschen Vineyards: A beautiful, family run vineyard in St. Helena, Boeschen Vineyards has a rich history in estate wines. Sign up for a virtual tasting session to learn more about their Old World approach, and sample wines that reflect a classic structure and tradition. 

The best way to experience virtual tasting sessions is to coordinate with friends, family, or co-workers, order from the same winery, and jump onto the same virtual tasting session to create wonderful, virtual, wine country memories.
