Bring the excitement of our tasting room to your own home.
After receiving great feedback on our Zoom Futures tastings, we have decided to continue with an expanded virtual tasting program year-round. While we cannot 100% replicate the experience of visiting our property in Los Olivos, we have designed a personally curated tasting program that brings the images of our vineyards and winery into your home.
How does it work?
In order to sign up for a virtual wine tasting, click here. Our virtual tasting program is designed to provide you with a customized experience based on the wines which you select. Unlike the tasting room where we have pre-selected the flight, with our virtual tastings, you have the opportunity to customize your experience by selecting a minimum of three and a maximum of six wines from our list of available wines. You choose the date and time you want, with about two weeks lead time for us to prepare and ship the wines to you. After submitting the request, we will contact you to confirm the date and coordinate the shipping. There is a $75 Virtual Tasting Fee applied to the flight that you select, and all Wine Club discounts apply to both the wines and the fee.
The tasting itself will be conducted by either our tasting room staff, tasting room manager, or Jeff Beckmen, our Director of Sales. We will assemble a custom Zoom presentation highlighting the wines that you have selected; depending on how many wines are selected, the tasting should run between an hour to 90 minutes, and you are free to ask whatever questions you have.
What we learned through our Zoom Futures Tastings is that virtual tastings have benefits – even over visiting the tasting room. The first advantage is that we have designed the program to be completely flexible; you are selecting which wines you want to taste. Whether you want all white wines, no white wines, only Rhône varietals, or every bottling of one varietal, the choice is yours. Another benefit is the convenience that virtual tastings offer. What could be easier than tasting wines in the comfort of your own home? Additionally, if you have a friends or other family members that you want to connect with, sharing in a virtual tasting is an easy solution.
Finally, each presentation is designed to give you a backstage pass into understanding our biodynamic farming practices and small lot production techniques. Specific photographs and stories will highlight what makes Beckmen wines so unique, and you will see parts of the property and winemaking process that are normally not seen – even on a tour.
While there is nothing that we enjoy more than hosting visitors at our estate, we recognize that it can be difficult to find the time to make the trip. Scheduling a Beckmen Virtual Tasting is a great way to celebrate holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or just spend quality time with family and friends.
