The experience of wine tasting can be reproduced virtually. A Bookhaven restaurant is offering the concept: three different wines, together with cheese, charcuterie and French bread. You’ll then to join a Zoom session hosted by a sommelier, who guide you through through an interactive experience:
Here’s how it all works — participants in a group choose a date and time for the experience, with at least 48 hours notice. Within an hour of the scheduled tasting, three half-bottles of wine and paired food will be delivered to all of the participants’ homes, and then a Zoom link will be e-mailed to each person about 20 minutes prior to the start time. With a click of the link, a sommelier appears on the screen for an interactive experience, talking guests through each of the wines. A three wine program costs $95 per couple, and a four wine program (including an added dessert and dessert wine) is an additional $25.
At COENA, we believe that we can provide the same kind of experience thanks to our wine list on iPad product. As each wine on the wine list comes with a tasting profile and well-written tasting notes, there is nothing left to guess for the customer. Also, the photos of the domain and producer tells the full story behind the wine. The combination of the story with photos and tasting of the wine at table makes the perfect experience for customers in a restaurant.
