Great wine is best enjoyed with friends and family, and the social interaction is a big part of the fun of going wine tasting. At Lenné, we miss offering wine chat and education as much as our customers miss receiving it, so we're using technology to bridge that gap during the Covid-19 isolation period, and continuing through the end of May even with the tasting room again open to the public.
We offer a variety of virtual tasting experiences, from public forums to private tastings tailored specifically to individual wine purchases.
Lenné Winemaker Steve Lutz and Hospitality Manager Eric Bruce will taste and discuss new releases, library wines, vineyard doings, answer your questions, and much more. Anyone can watch and submit questions via Instagram. All videos are archived in our YouTube channel.
Upcoming Virtual Tastings:
May 23, 2020, 5:30pm -- No show this week. We'll cover the "Pinots Around the World" in our May 30th program.
May 30, 2020, 5:30pm -- Pinot Noirs around the world + 2011 Vintage revisited. We'll taste a selection of premium Pinot Noir wines sourced from the Willamette Valley, California's Russian River, and France's Burgundy.
