Virtual Tasting Host

About In Good Taste Wines: We are a global winery doing something unique: bringing tasting flights from around the world to your living room. We produce wines by-the-glass to help our customers explore and discover new wines without the financial risk of buying a full bottle. But we don’t aim to be the only wine they drink: we simply hope to spark joy for new varietals and make wine knowledge accessible to everyone.

Pre covid, our patented 6.3 ounce mini bottles were served in 200+ hotels, airlines, cruise ships, and trains. We had to pivot quickly to launch a DTC eCommerce site, which now serves as a marketplace for wine lovers to explore unique wines from unique regions from around the world. With each tasting kit purchased, we offer a virtual tasting with a wine expert.

Our virtual tastings are used for friends, family, and loved ones to stay connected in a meaningful way. We also work with companies like Netflix, Snap, Salesforce, Google, Capital One, Microsoft, Box to engage with their customers and keep employee culture and cohesion in a new virtual world.
