Virtual and Live Tasting Events
Virtual events are a great way to keep your staff engaged, inspired, appreciated and motivated, especially with the financial disruptions coming out of the pandemic - inflation, gas and travel prices, especially with regard to corporate travel costs and remote teams. This is also great for Alumni Associations, research and technology companies and financial firms in particular.
Live events are the ultimate experience for regional operations. There is no replacement for live engagement, and live wine, beer and spirit tasting parties or cocktail events are terrific for getting people together in a meaningful and impactful way.

Featured Virtual and Live Tasting Parties
Hosting a virtual, hybrid or live tasting party (wine, spirits or beer) is also tremendous for team building, happiness, and inclusiveness.
Make sure to reach out to The Drunken Grape® at firstname.lastname@example.org for a discussion on how to implement this.
We are experts at gaining much greater exposure for your winery, brewery or distillery through direct video branding with our subject matter expert as well as our experts in photography and videography. The pandemic has shown just how important this is, especially at a time where many wineries, breweries and distilleries are struggling with weakened on-premise business as well as a general lack of awareness about your story and the fantastic products you offer. Video, which can easily be showcased on your website and through social media is an incredibly powerful medium to reach a thirsty population looking for more, as well as an excellent visual to greatly enhance online and direct sales to your establishment.
Make sure to contact us at email@example.com to learn how our experts can help.
Some of our portfolio of corporate clients includes Creekside Estate Winery, Epiphan Video, Creative Layer, Nutanix, and Eldridge Industries.

... enthusiastic, knowledgable ...
Our team had Rob conduct a virtual beer tasting event to our team of 30 employees. The event was extremely well received by everyone and it was a great mix of education and fun. Rob was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and knew how to engage his audience. If you are looking to do a virtual event with your team, I would highly recommend Rob's firm. It's a guaranteed win for your entire organization.
... positive, deeply knowledgable ...
Working with Rob is a pleasure. He is dynamic, positive, deeply knowledgable, and a true professional. Rob helped us drive significant awareness with a video campaign that really helped as we worked hard to keep Flora top of mind during these past few challenging months. Highly recommend working with Rob!
... incredibly personable, positive, has great energy ...
I recently hired Rob for a personal wine tasting with my husband for our wedding anniversary. Given the distance and COVID, we did the tasting virtually, which was much easier than I realized it would be. I was absolutely blown away by Rob's in-depth knowledge not only of wine, but, of the history wine and beer. Rob is incredibly personable, positive, has great energy, has vast knowledge, and provided an experience my husband and I will never forget. I highly recommend Rob without reservation.
Willing to go the extra mile ...
I've been working with Rob now for over 6 months and during that time he has impressed me so much. I have witnessed and seen first hand that his knowledge is above and beyond most yet his ability to present his expertise as a Sommelier in a language everyone can understand is a true and rare asset. That takes a special person, and Rob has proven himself time and time again as reliable, understanding and most of all, willing to go the extra mile and get things done. Rob is one of a kind. Highly recommended.
... pouring in with positive feedback!
Thank you so much for the event last night! Everyone has been pouring in with positive feedback! Many people have commented on your high energy and abilities to keep everyone interested and engaged as well as your in depth knowledge of the history across the whole spectrum of alcohol. Overall, a really great experience for our whole team!
