What you'll do

Learn about wine from the comfort of your home! (please read it all)
This is great for team-building. Reach out to book a private experience for your group or a specific date/time wished!

Here we will learn how red and white wine are made, how they differ, and most importantly, how to choose when you buy wine to enjoy at home. You would be amazed how people generally shop wine in a wrong way. We will then mention the main grapes and main regions of the world for those grapes, as well as the differences between them followed by some wine and food pairing (yes you will learn how to do michelin stars food and wine pairing)!

You might believe that all those tastings and all those vineyard visits you did taught you something. Just read the reviews and notice how most people believed the same untill they did this.

The recommended wine and cheese below are not mandatory, but it does make the experience better.

This will give you all the tools you need to be a better wine buyer.

In the US and the UK I can arrange wine to be shipped to your home.

FAQ (answers):
- The recommended wines and cheeses are a guideline, you can use whatever suits you best.
- Spots are per person and not per screen

I have experience in ultra luxury hospitality environments across 5 countries and 2 continents, including places like The Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale (USA) and Geneva Switzerland, Kempinski Malta, Rosewood London, and Michelin Stars in the South of France. I'm also WSET-certified from London school (currently doing the last level, 4), a wine producer with a wine tour related website (rafaeldelima.com). To follow my wine journey and vineyard time, hit me @rafaeldelima91.

I love to break down wine knowledge for people, using a good laugh and food in an enjoyable moment! While I'm also "stuck" at home, I'm at my vineyard and I want to share that vibe with you!

My parents and I did this experience and really enjoyed it! We liked Rafa's presentation style as well as feeling like we learned a lot right off the bat. We will definitely be applying the stuff he talked about next time we buy some wine, and hope we can go to Porto to check out his bar some day! Definitely recommend if you want to learn more about wine in a quick and friendly setting.

We did this as a team bonding activity and came away with a wealth of knowledge and a new wine contact in Porto ;) Rafa was an absolute hit with our team and everyone was excited to take their newfound wine-wisdom out into the world. Thanks for a great experience, Rafa!

Rafa (as he would like to be called) was amazing. We booked him for a team bonding event for work and he is very personable and knowledgeable. He seamlessly involved the group without forcing conversation. One of our participants didn’t have alcohol and he knew immediately coke could make a good substitute in one of our activities. Participants were open to asking him questions and I didn’t feel the need to step in. A few employees actually thanked me publicly for organizing this event! Highly recommend if the team has never done wine tasting. Rafa is a great host!

We booked Rafa’s class for a virtual corporate party and had so much fun! Afterwards, everyone was talking about how much they enjoyed the event. Rafa was very approachable, friendly, and knowledgeable about wine. Highly recommend Rafa to anyone that wants to have a great time while learning about wine!

Rafa's class was awesome! He is super knowledgeable and personable! Could not have asked for a better host. His expertise shows, and you will leave knowing more than you expected! Now I want to take the next level to increase my wine knowledge!

I have booked Rafa so many times for my corporate groups, I've lost count. He's so knowledgeable and passionate about wine. I highly recommend him. You will be amazed at what you learn.
