Let us bring the Parallel Wines' Napa Valley tasting room to you and your wine-loving friends with this private, virtual tasting. A guided wine tasting that includes our three highly-rated current releases:
- 2020 Napa Valley Chardonnay
- 2019 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
- 2019 Black Diamond Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon "Prima"
Tasting wines are shipped to you...and you can also add on food pairings from local Napa Valley food purveyor, Panevino, for an all-inclusive, private wine and food experience!
Appointments are available daily from 12:00PM - 8:00PM in your local time zone. Please contact our General Manager, Adrienne Smith at (707) 486-1100 or email@example.com, or simply use the Tasting Reservations form to request your appointment.
- $150 per person (2 person/fee minimum per household), includes one 750mL bottle of each of the three wines listed above (Retail: $420), Temperature-Controlled shipping, where needed, is complimentary (Value: $60-100).
- $40 supplement per household/location to add on our hand-selected Napa Valley Panevino wine-food pairings, which include:
- Rosemary Mixed Nuts (6oz package): Light brown sugar, sea salt, fresh rosemary and a hint of heat lightly coat a mix of whole-piece pecans, cashews, hazelnuts, almonds and pistachios. The bright citrus on our 2020 Napa Valley Chardonnay compliments the rosemary (think lemon-rosemary chicken or salmon!) and the touch of heat and sweet make it a compelling and delightful pairing.
- Saucisson Provencal (6oz whole salumi): Lavender-infused, housemade charcuterie made with rose wine, white pepper and garlic and aged in a custom curing chamber for weeks. The herbaceousness of the salumi pairs exceptionally well with our smooth, medium-bodied 2019 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and pulls out its natural spicy, black pepper notes.
- Oil-Cured French Olive and Provencal Herb Grissini (4oz package): Handmade semolina breadsticks are how Panevino started 15+ years ago - a husband and wife team passionate about making the perfect accompaniments for Napa Valley wine. These special breadsticks provide a deep, earthy flavor that perfectly compliments our bold 2019 Black Diamond Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that is steeped in mocha, leather, dark chocolate and blackberry.
Complimentary mailed package includes additional food pairing suggestions, table set-up, wine purchasing and Wine Club information to guide our tasting.
Requirements: 1-4 locations or 2-8 people; tablet, laptop or smart TV (please no cell phones); familiarity with using Zoom for online meetings. Please allow 60-90 minutes for this tasting.
