    ACB Wine Tastings -

    Santorini, Crete & Sardinia

    A series of three virtual wine tastings via Zoom

    Wednesday 15, 22 and 29 July




            To help put everyone in a vacation mood, discover some good new wines and socialize safely virtually or in small groups, Terre Mieli Cieli invites you to join a series of three 90-minute virtual wine tastings featuring typical wines from Santorini, Crete and Sardinia, three of the best and biggest wine producing islands in the Mediterranean.

            It works like this: You register on the ACB website to order the wines for the series online. You can either pick them-up or have them delivered to your door. When the day comes, you get a few wine-friendly nibbles ready, connect to Zoom, open a designated bottle and learn a little about it before socializing and networking in Zoom’s breakout rooms in small groups of 4-5 people at a time. We will taste two wines per evening (you can open just one if you are alone, of course, or invite friends over to discover them with you). Our host, ACB member and sommelier Brandon Mitchener, will introduce the topic and then the first wine with a few slides and invite everyone to give comments, then we’ll split into smaller groups for easier socializing. We’ll bring you back to the “main room” on Zoom for a few minutes to introduce the second wine, then we’ll open up the breakout rooms again with a different set of people. If you miss a session, you’ll still have the wine!
