Alyssa At-Home Virtual Wine Tasting


While we've loved hosting wine tastings for your teams and groups, we've heard from many of you that you'd like to have access to wine tastings at home that you can access anytime, anywhere. So we asked our resident sommelier Alyssa Taylor to give a mini-version of her tasting that you can play on video in the comfort of your home!

What you'll need:

  1. Wines: A Maker mixed pack which includes a selection of our latest premium wine releases. Chill your non-red wines before tasting, and have red wines at room temp or slightly chilled if you prefer.

  2. A glass: We recommend drinking wines out of a glass if you are at-home for the best aromatics and overall tasting experience. If you'd prefer to drink out of the can, you do you.

  3. Pairings: We've listed cheese and food pairings below each wine. Feel free to give them a try if you'd like, or try your own!
