As the world went into lockdown we got creative and took our event-organisation activities online! We launched Quaranvino online wine tastings to bring wine lovers who were desperate for some great wine entertainment in those moments where we couldn't leave the house, together with some of Italy's best wine producers.
On 28th March 2020 we had our debut online dinner date (perhaps this was even the world's first online wine-makers dinner?!) and I was proud and honoured to have it featured on a special report by CGTN (China Global Television Network) on how businesses in Munich had adapted to the Covid 19 crisis.
Over 30 households from across Europe joined us that for that first night with Klaus Lentsch of Weingut Klaus Lentsch in Sud Tirol. We had groups of friends tune in from Brussels, Munich, Düsseldorf, Milan, London and Yorkshire. By the end of the evening, we'd had so much fun that we were all convinced this format was something that would be in our future - even when Covid 19 is gone!
This was the start of Quaranvino, a unique online wine-tasting experience!
