Welcome to your virtual wine tasting team bonding on Airbnb Online Experiences.
It has been a great year for the team, and celebrations are well deserved! Rebekah has asked me to put together this virtual wine tasting event as a team bonding on Airbnb Online Experiences.
Please bring your wine of choice. You may bring as many as you like. As a general rule, the more, the better, but I usually recommend two different types, like red and white. It would be nice to taste the wines at the beginning before anything else. This practice will give you a basic understanding of the wines, and then you can move back and forth and compare them against each other.
If in doubt, have a look below for recommendations and inspiration on how to customize the experience to your personal wine taste. Please share your thoughts in the comments section to get the Q&A going and get a basic direction of what you want to take away from this experience.

This is a Bring Your Own Wine (BYOW) Online Tasting which means you can bring along any wine you want. In short I recommend wines that trigger your curiosity. I will take you through the method I use to taste a new wine, using a simple Sensory Analysis Procedure. Everybody has the ability to taste. Not many know how to use it! I am here to help you understand how it’s done! I will introduce you to the world of wine tasting using a simplified step-by-step guide.
There is no right or wrong and tasting is not a competition of any sort. It’s all about understanding the fermented beverage in your glass.
Check out the Q & A tab to find answers to questions discussed during the sessions.

Customize your Experience
Wine Tasting is a very personal experience and you can do as you please especially in the privacy of a zoom meeting! however I’d suggest you try and give your wine selection a structure and a theme. Comparative tasting is the way I learn about wine. Observing two wines at the same time focusing on what is different and where applied what is common between them.
Terroir, pronounced “tehr-wahr”, is a French term that expresses the combination of soil, weather conditions and style of winegrowing and winemaking. These three elements bring a specific identity and a sense of place to the wine. A terroir can be spread as a region or be as specific as a small part of an estate.
I recommend choosing wines from the same origin if you want to focus on what a region has to offer. Keep things simple and equal by picking from the same Country > region > county > village > winery.
If you like a grape variety and you want to understand it better then choose the same single-variety wines but as diverse as possible. e.g. East coast vs West coast or New world vs Old world wine.
You may want to get a bit deeper into your glass and compare different wine styles like Oak-aged vs Young wine or Dry vs Semi-Dry.
