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 or a specific date/time wished!

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)
Other things to note
Please make sure that you have the Zoom app (www.zoom.us) downloaded on your smartphone, computer, or tablet.

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!

My colleagues and I absolutely loved our time with Rafa! He was personable, knowledgeable, and shared some great information. The virtual experience was small and intimate and he did a great job in making you feel like you were in a small tasting room among old and new friends. Highly recommend!

Rafa was an inviting and friendly host, who made the wine world a little easier to understand. He broke down the most important elements that go into creating different flavors of both red and white wines, gave tips for what to look for on the bottle, and answered questions from the group.

Booked a private group with Rafa and he did a fantastic job - made everyone feel comfortable, answered all questions. We definitely learned quite a bit and would highly recommend this session.

I legitimately can't recommend this experience more - Rafa made wine purchasing so practical!! We attended his class as part of a bachelorette party, but our minds were seriously blown with how much we learned. It was actually really nice that we could purchase our own wine bottles - it made his recommendations that much more authentic, and I really feel like I understand what I do/don't like about certain wines better now!
