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.

In the US and the UK I can arrange wine to be shipped to your home.

FAQ (answers):
- The recommended wines and cheeses are a guideline, you can use whatever suits you best.
- Spots are per person and not per screen

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 tour related website (rafaeldelima.com). To follow my wine journey and vineyard time, hit me @rafaeldelima91.

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!

I have booked Rafa so many times for my corporate groups, I've lost count. He's so knowledgeable and passionate about wine. I highly recommend him. You will be amazed at what you learn.

Rafa is a wine genius!! You will learn so much and he keeps communicating with you afterwards so you keep learning and figuring out more about the wonderful world of wine.

Rafael is very engaging and personable which makes it fun to interact and ask questions. The experience was educational and fun. I expected a more scripted “lesson” from an expert teaching but instead I felt like I was in the living room of a very knowledgeable friend sharing stories and encouraging curiosity about wine. I highly recommend!

A fun, non-intimidating and super-informative experience with a really down-to-earth and incredibly knowledgeable wine expert! Rafa is approachable and easy-going, but is also the consummate professional. The hour flew by and he kept things moving along so we didn't miss any of the curriculum and somehow he also managed to answer all of our questions. We were a group of (6) and were lucky enough to have him to ourselves - although if others had joined it would have been a 'more the merrier' kind of scenario. I can't wait to look him up and take another class from him in person. And... I think I'll be booking another Airbnb virtual experience with him because I know several other people who will enjoy it, and I could easily participate a 2nd (or even a 3rd) time. 10 out of 10 stars!

We had a company team event experience with Rafe (actually, I keep booking him for all my company Airbnb Experiences because EVERYONE always has amazing things to say about him and his experience. He was passionate about his topic, sharing so many thing about his winery, wine tasting, what to look for, and things we thought we knew...but didn't! Highly recommend this for singles or groups or adult families (because you'll be drinking wine). You'll love it!

Super informative and fun! Raf's wine expertise is truly impressive, and the content is somehow well-planned and flexible at the same time. I learned a ton, in a way that will practically enhance my enjoyment of wine in the future.
