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.

FAQ (answers):
- I do this everyday, both for the timezone of the US and Europe. Depending on work at my vineyard, times available will vary. If no classes available is because they are sold out.
- The recommended wines and cheeses are a guideline, you can use whatever suits you best.
- Bigger parties accepted upon request.
- Spots are per person and not per screen (I don't like big groups)
Other things to note
Please make sure that you have the Zoom app (www.zoom.us) downloaded on your smartphone, computer, or tablet.

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-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 purchased this experience as a special date night for my husband. Rafa was an amazing host for this class! He was personable, easy to talk to, and informative. He tailored his presentation to our questions and we learned so much! I would highly recommend this class because it made us feel more confident about tasting and buying wine in the future.

What an incredible experience. Rafa is a super engaging and thoughtful host, the hour flew by! Rafa translated his vast expertise into a very entertaining, informative, interactive and approachable lesson all about wine. I highly recommend this experience - don’t forget to bring a pen and paper! You’ll definitely want to take notes.

Rafa is a great guide. I have booked him several times for my company events and co-workers always come away with excitement and a better appreciation of wine. They learn so much from Rafa and they can't wait to experience better wine in the future, with their new found knowledge.

My colleagues and I absolutely loved our time with Rafa! He was personable, knowledgeable, and shared some great information. The virtual experience was small and intimate and he did a great job in making you feel like you were in a small tasting room among old and new friends. Highly recommend!

I booked this event for a work social event and our group had a great time! Rafael was fun, enthusiastic and an expert about wine while keeping it casual!

My family and I scheduled a wine class with Rafa and it far exceeded our expectations. Rafa does a fantastic job explaining his simple, straight forward approach to wine. His passion for wine education shines through the screen. It was the perfect way to celebrate a birthday from a far while we need to social distance from each other. I can not recommend Rafa's wine class enough.
