Hedonism Wines Launches Virtual Wine Tasting Experience

Hedonism is launching a series of innovative virtual tastings that can be undertaken at home via video link.

By Alex Martin

Luxury wine retailer Hedonism Wines has gone virtual by offering its renowned tasting sessions from the comfort of your own homes. The London store has launched the offering in an effort to keep spirits high while the city remains on lockdown.

Hedonism, which is located in Mayfair, is known for stocking some of the most precious wines and spirits in the world. It also has an in-house team of experts renowned for their in-depth knowledge. Tastings are usually conducted in-store, but the store is closed to the public due to the novel coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak.

Starting April 3, Hedonism is launching a series of innovative virtual tastings that can be undertaken at home via video link. Guests register for a tasting ahead of time and will receive their box via delivery well ahead of time.

There are two tiers of tastings: The Classic and The Hedonist. The latter includes some truly exceptional wines and packages are priced from £300 ($367) to £600 ($735) depending on which event you sign up for.

Each session will be hosted by a Hedonism expert and lasts approximately an hour. Only 10 tasting kits are available per session, guaranteeing the same intimate experience you would receive if you were attending in person. There is also an option to organize a private tasting with Hedonism, which includes a tasting box built according to your exact preferences.
