Virtual Wine Tastings

Our Virtual Wine Tastings are a great way to meet with us each month for our unique tasting experience! These topic-focused sessions introduce you to some affordable and approachable options to the more commonly known expensive wines.  Our goal is to introduce 3-4 wines each priced in the $15-$25 price range. These tastings help build your confidence and widen your experience because we introduce wines that you give you great value at reasonable prices.

Testimonials

Here's what some of our consistent wine tasters recently told us:

"I can recommend wines to strangers in the liquor store"

I was standing in front of the wine section at the grocery store when the man next to me said, "Hey, do you know anything about wine?" After a moment's hesitation, I thought - yes, yes I do! So I said it. "Yes, I do. What are you looking for?"

I was able to send him on his way with a yummy cab sav for less than $10 -- and I realized how much I have learned at Joie de Vin's Virtual Wine Tastings!  Then I grabbed the New York State Riesling and went on my merry way. Good wines to be found in lots of places!

Dawn

"Never before have I received so much value from one website!"

I signed up for the monthly membership thinking, 'what have I got to lose?'. And what I discovered was a wine lover's paradise!

I love the online courses, and can't wait to join the next virtual wine tasting. I learn something new every day from this membership!
