We are living and working in uncertain times with no real sense of when we will all be able to get together in groups again.
However as you can still enjoy a glass of wine in the comfort and safety of your own home we have now moved our tastings to focus on virtual online wine tastings.
A Virtual Wine Tasting Experience with WineOnline.ie is one such way to bring groups of people together, during a shared social wine tasting. We have work teams, families, friends and whole offices utilising these tastings as a fun and interactive way to get together socially. Perfect to replace after work drinks, a client meeting or structure a little wine learning with friends or family, and each tasting is private to your group only.
How does it work?
Choosing a Virtual Experience from WineOnline.ie couldn't be easier.
We will deliver your chosen tasting box to each recipient at their home or address across Ireland (or Internationally). Our team can then introduce you to the wines in a short 45 minute tasting, or an extended full guided 90 minute tasting.
The 45 minute experience is ideal as a short social gathering with clients, staff or friends. We’ll introduce the wines and then leave you to enjoy!
For the 90 minute experience we’ll host a full wine tasting where we will bring you and your group through 4 wines, comparing old world wines to new world. We delve into the details on the wines, the terroir and areas the wines are from, chatting through food and wine matching and anything else that participants want to know along the way. Let’s see who can tell a Bordeaux from a Rioja?! It is social, interactive and fun and we try to keep it light hearted and enjoyable overall.
How much does it cost?
The cost per participant will depend on which Tasting Box you choose.
We have boxes starting from €72 with wine only and €85 including a selection of cheese from Sheridans Cheesemongers.
Please note: there is a minimum of 5 people for our 45 minute Tasting Experience and a minimum of 15 people for the 90 minute. Smaller numbers are welcome but supplement costs apply. Every tasting is hosted by our team of two - will & Michael, who together have over 40 years experience in food and wine. Our tastings are fun, relaxed and informative.
We have recently introduced fine wine tastings, where each recipient will get a smaller tasting box, with one glass of each of four wines. This is great of you want your group to experience fine wines, higher quality and an immersive and educational experience of these wines. We decant your wines into smaller vessels prior to shipping. We will accomodate requests for certain wines as well, but we do offer our 'Shrewsbury Hamper box' as a way to try a diverse number of fine wines.
Our Virtual Experiences operate from Monday through Friday and each tasting is private for just you and your group. You control whom can come along and share in the tasting, whether they have a tasting box from us or not.

Reviews for our Virtual Tasting Experiences:
‘Thank you so much for the wine tasting on Friday night, the Idea crew really enjoyed it! It’s a really innovative idea, especially at a time like this when businesses are trying to think of ways to bring teams together whilst they are all working remotely. And you even managed to make people thing a little differently about Chardonnay!’

Just a note to say thanks for a great event yesterday. Feedback was hugely positive across the board, with my CEO saying the event was “flawless”.

Thanks for a great team wine tasting which everyone from our office thoroughly enjoyed. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it afterwards and our management team were really happy at how it all worked out.
Lisa - DMVF Architects, August 2020
A huge thank you for hosting our party. It was a really enjoyable evening and a few of us stayed on for another couple of hours enjoying the delicious wine. Thank you for being patient with us - certainly not a quiet bunch!

We had Michael and Will join us to run a virtual wine tasting experience as part of a corporate event for our customers. The wine tasting was a huge success and I have had great feedback from colleagues and customers. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the wines which were picked specifically for this event in mind. There was a very relaxed approach to the wine tasting, allowing everyone to get involved which was fantastic. I have had someone tell me they could have listened to Michael and Will speak about the wines for another hour! We would highly recommend the WineOnline virtual wine tasting experience, so much so, we are already organising our next event!
