The Best Virtual Wine Tasting Events – UK

Tasting wine is exciting. Every bottle and every glass are an opportunity to travel to foreign lands without leaving the comfort of your home. Each bottle of wine has a unique personality and getting to know it is bliss beyond compare.

Of course, wine is meant to be shared, and when tasted with the guidance of a professional wine specialist, the pleasure is even greater. That’s why wine tastings are so popular, they’re social events that allow everyone to exchange their impressions of wine, while they learn from others.

Virtual wine tastings might be the safest, and most comfortable way of enjoying wine, and although there are countless options out there, we’d love to tell you about some of our favourites. Below we’ve listed five hosts who are running some of the best virtual wine tasting events and experiences in the UK.
