This Virtual Wine Tasting Brings a Wine Expert Straight to Your Home—for Free

We'll be sippin' with the master all week!

Even though we’re all taking a break from the real world at the moment, that doesn’t mean there’s not a ton of stuff to do indoors. Museums have opened their doors for virtual tours, and the kids can talk a walk through The Louvre from home. But if you’re missing out on wine tastings, staying inside just got a whole lot better.

Now you can indulge in all your favorites with an expert, courtesy of this virtual wine tasting. There’s no better way to relax and burn some time than with a full glass of wine.

Here’s How to Unwind at Home

Acker Wines is bringing us the virtual wine tasting series. It’s, of course, BYOW (bring your own wine) but includes two 30-40 minute sessions with a wine tasting expert per week throughout the month of April. If you really want to sip along properly, Acker Wines is also offering nationwide delivery, so you can order in advance and get the full taste.
