Hi, my name is Sandra, and I just hosted my fourth WineShop at Home tasting!
For those of you who don’t know, WineShop At Home is a direct sales company that provides a wine tasting “experience.” When wine is involved – especially high end, quality wine – people will show up and thoroughly enjoy themselves tasting and purchasing wonderful wine. I highly recommend hosting a WineShop At Home tasting.
Betty Kaufman expertly leads you through a series of wines. We tried six wines at our tasting. Since I’m allergic to reds, Betty was able to customize my party to fit my needs. We tasted four whites, one rose and one red (for the benefit of all my friends).
We were able to discuss what we smelled and tasted in each wine, our pairing ideas, the wine maker’s pairing ideas, and our ideas for how we might use the wines in our cooking. We had so much fun! It was a fabulous trip to the wine country in the comfort of my own backyard!
My husband and I each loved two of the wines. I loved two whites. He loved the rose and the red. Other people at our tasting loved other sets of wines. Betty reassured us that everybody has his or her own palate and that you need to celebrate what you love.
Betty describes her tastings as two hours of unadulterated “edu-tainment” where you sample artisan wines and learn about wine in a fun, unintimidating way. I couldn’t describe it better.
At the end of the tasting, my husband and I ordered three bottles each of the four wines we loved. Happily, we got the wines a few days later!
Two final notes from Betty: Thanks, Sandra, for sharing your very nice thoughts about your wine tasting. It was an incredibly fun afternoon, and your beautiful backyard made the event even more memorable. To my readers, if you’re ready to host your own tasting, please complete the form on this page, and I will follow up with you over the next week.
