If you love going to wineries and miss having the experience due to COVID-19 restrictions, you’re in luck. Thanks to the ingenuity of businesses nationwide, you can still have a winery experience, but from the comfort of your own home. Introducing the virtual vineyard tour! It’s gaining popularity with wine aficionados who miss drinking a glass of wine from their favorite vineyard.
Vineyards Tours That Have Gone Virtual
You likely saw the virtual museum and aquarium tours promoted online the past few months. Providing a contactless view of famous buildings, exhibits, and marine life, they’re a great way to spend your free time. Best of all, they give you a different viewpoint of places that you may have visited in the past in-person. Touring a local, regional, or global vineyard allows you to witness the winemaking process firsthand.
Some virtual vineyard tours to look into include:
The Stoller Wine Group Channel. The Stoller Family Estate in Oregon wants to give you an authentic wine experience. Through the launching of its channel, you’re able to get an insider’s view of winemaking and what it takes to grow and run a successful vineyard. The Stoller Wine Group Channel puts up new content regularly, making it an educational and entertainment resource to view often.
Evesham Woods. Offering customers a private wine tasting experience from the comfort of their own homes, the company’s wine sampling kits are a hit. Not only do they give you access to a professional sommelier, but they also allow you to try the best wines offered by the vineyard. You can set up live calls through FaceTime, Skype, or Google.
Finding new ways to connect to wine is easy when you’re willing to apply creativity to the equation. A virtual wine tour is likely something you never thought of doing in the past. Now that it’s an option, you can’t wait to clear some free space in your calendar to make it ‘the thing to do.’
Enjoy a Leisurely Afternoon Tour from the Comfort of Your Living Room

It’s an experience worth having at least once in your life, as you continue to master sheltering at home and social distancing.
