While we can not travel to wineries right now, wineries can come to us. Many wineries are offering virtual tastings where you can learn more about the winery from the comfort of your own home as I wrote about for California Winery Advisor. Want to go wine tasting without leaving the house? Want to learn the basics of wine or how to describe what you are tasting? Now you can learn about wine in the comfort of your own home.


Many winemakers are offering virtual wine tasting experiences online. Buy some of their wines and then join them as they discuss the wines, how they were made and more. This is better than going to the tasting room as you do not always get to meet the winemaker but now you can. The folks at the Priority Wine Pass have organized a number of virtual tastings with local wineries. This is a nice option if you want a curated list of wineries. Click Here to see their list.
This story originally appeared in the Napa Valley Register.
At the heart of Beverly Hills is the famous Rodeo Drive, considered the intersection of luxury, fashion and entertainment. But now as people walk down the street shopping at the likes of Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Valentino, Armani, Dior, Cartier and more, they can also stop for a Napa Valley wine experience in the heart of Beverly Hills at the St. Supéry pop-up tasting salon.
St. Supéry, purchased by Chanel 2015, is the sustainably farmed winery in Rutherford, the heart of the Napa Valley. The new pop-up tasting salon is on the ground floor of the building next door to the Chanel boutique. This magnificent, three-story building was previously the home of Lladro porcelain. The 1.000-square-foot space has large glass windows looking out onto Rodeo Drive, a high ceiling that covers the three-story building and a grandiose staircase in the center.
With more than 15 years in the wine industry, I have met so many wonderful, intelligent successful women in various positions - from making wine to selling wine to buying wine to writing about wine. And, in my experience, these women are not only passionate about wine but they are gracious and supportive of one another. This was exemplified when CEO of St. Supery Winery Emma Swain recently visited Los Angeles to host a small lunch with women in the wine business. While we enjoyed the wines of St. Supery, we chatted about wine, shared funny stories and laughed together. Emma Swain
