Winemakers will bring winery experience to life online

Rutherford, CA (March 17, 2020):  St. Supéry Estate Vineyards and Winery is pleased to announce that it will hold a virtual wine tasting every Thursday afternoon for the next six weeks in an effort to connect with wine lovers since it temporarily closed visitor center doors yesterday following the Governor’s suggestion to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

“At this time we are not accepting visitors at the winery.  However, we want to continue to enjoy our wines with our friends around the world, so we are bringing back our virtual wine tastings.  With improvements in technology we are able to engage more directly with our customers than in the past”, says Emma Swain, CEO of St. Supéry Estate.  “One of our winemakers will host the chat on Zoom each Thursday and recordings will be made available if you can’t join in. We feel Zoom is the best platform to facilitate a more interactive session.” Facebook Live will also be an option for wine lovers looking to tune in at either 3:00PM or 5:30PM PDT.

To make this experience easy for customers, the winery created a 6-pack Injoy @ Home Tasting Kit that contains the wines to be discussed for the next six weeks with promotional pricing and shipping included. For those wishing to make this wine the centerpiece for their dinner that evening, the winery will include suggested recipes to pair with each wine. The calendar for scheduled tastings is:

March 19:  2018 Dollarhide Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, 92 Points, Wine Spectator

March 26:  2015 Rutherford Estate Vineyard Merlot, 93 Points, The Tasting Panel

April 2:  2017 Napa Valley Estate Virtú, 90 Points, Wine & Spirits Magazine

April 9:  2016 Napa Valley Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, 92 Points, James Suckling

April 16:  2018 Napa Valley Estate Oak Free Chardonnay, *Final Vintage - Very Limited*

April 23:  2014 Dollarhide Elevation, 93 Points, James Suckling

Email divinecab@stsupery.com for a dedicated link to the Zoom hang out or if you are interested in learning more; winery staff remain available via email and phone (+1 866-612-2582) to discuss all things wine-related. Although a virtual wine tasting isn’t the same as enjoying a glass of wine together at the winery, it is the socially responsible alternative until we can do so in person.
