How it works for teams
The new offering allows you to purchase curated wine selections at special prices for delivery. You can then schedule private video-tastings with your coworkers and the wineries themselves.
Step 1: Feel free to review our wine virtual wine tasting options to see if there is something that stands out to you.
Step 2: Fill out the form below to the right and submit.
Step 4: We work with you to schedule a virtual tasting time and date that is best for everyone. Keep in mind this should be 5-14 business days from the order date since the wines need time to arrive in the mail.
Step 5: We send you and your team instructions on how to access the video call. Your team logs on and gets ready to sip and learn!
Virtual Wine Tasting is flexible
Another thing that companies have been surprised by is our flexibility. Since we work with smaller wineries we’re able to make all sorts of accommodations. For example, one virtual tasting had a couple of non-drinkers. So after a few calls we were able to arrange for chocolate and olive oil shipments for those employees instead.
What companies are saying
We spoke with Kelly Panebianco from Crossbeam. She said, “I reached out about doing virtual wine tastings for my company, and Jamie got back promptly, made the process easy, and found options within our budget." Many businesses like Crossbeam are turning to us as a fun alternative. She explained, “We had wanted to do an in-office wine tasting before Covid-19, so we thought it would be fun to try it virtually and not feel like we had to wait until the storm was over to have our scheduled team outing.”
Online team-building activity keeping us connected
Priority Wine Pass founder, Jamie Cegelski-Gaebe is very appreciative of this new opportunity. Despite the current climate of the wine industry, she remains thankful. “We couldn’t be more thrilled that we’re providing support to those who need it right now. Virtual wine tasting brings people together and teaches them something new. What we love most is that it also helps the smaller wineries in the industry. So, It's great to see it's a popular online team-building activity now too. Overall, we’re happy that people are staying connected and supporting eachother in these crazy times”.
The Back Story of Virtual Tastings
We recently partnered with local winemakers to launch our Virtual Wine Tasting service. This was a pivot to offer more services to our existing customers due to the COVID-19 lockdowns. Since launching, we’ve found that it is trending among human resource departments. It has become a popular online team-building activity. That's because the format is ideal for companies looking for fun online activities to boost spirits with their remote employees. They love that it offers more structure than the free-for-all environment of a virtual happy hour.
