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 and spend some time together with wine!

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.

FAQ (answers):
- I do this everyday, both for the timezone of the US and Europe. Depending on work at my vineyard, times available will vary. If no classes available is because they are sold out.
- The recommended wines and cheeses are a guideline, you can use whatever suits you best.
- Bigger parties accepted upon request.
- Spots are per person and not per screen (I don't like big groups)

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-related website (rafaeldelima.com).

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!

Wine can sometimes seem overwhelming and complicated. Rafael had an amazing ability to highlight the key elements in a way that was interesting and fun. We’re looking forward to practicing what we learned!

Can't recommend Rafa's experience enough. We learned a ton and Rafa was a warm, engaging host. This made for a very fun date night and we have already recommended this experience to several friends. Thank you Rafa!

Rafael was FANTASTIC! I coordinated a private virtual wine tasting for a friend's birthday. It was 7 women from all over the US. He got to know each one of us, told stories, jokes, it was incredibly personalized and we walked away learning about both white and red wines. Rafael taught us interesting facts that we never knew from any other wine tastings we have done in the past! Highly, HIGHLY recommend.

Fantastic wine tasting! I booked a private, virtual tasting for myself and 14 colleagues. We had so much fun and Rafa was the perfect host — friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and engaging. Coordinating class logistics was quick and easy, and we’re really looking forward to scheduling our next one. Thank you, Rafa!
