Thank you for your interest in organizing a virtual wine tasting event with Bighammerwines.com.
BHW has been a leading online retailer since 2009. We only trade in fine wine. This is our expertise, passion and we're highly selective. Out of the 4,500 wines we taste each year, only 4%will make the grade. Our specialty is selling highly valued wine at half the price by purchasing large volumes of wines directly from wineries and selling direct to insiders on our list.
To learn more about our online wine store please visitwww.bighammerwines.com.
We are receiving an increased number of virtual wine tasting requests. Details below!
We provide Sommeliers to lead tastings of the wines. The minimum fee is $150/hr.
If you prefer to have our Founder, President, and Winemaker, Greg Martellotto, host your tasting, the fee is higher. You can find out more about Greghere.
Most tasting events are 60 minutes plus 30 minutes of Q&A. Past guests have highly rated our events and often recommend us to their friends, family, and fellow business partners. One of the most popular segments of our tasting is the opportunity to “Ask a WIne Expert Anything about Wine.”
We suggest that you poll your guests in advance to see if they have unanswered questions that they’ve always wondered about to kick off the Q&A.
Proposed Timing of Event:
5-30 minute Introductions, socializing, answer question of the day, start chat engagement
31-90 minute Guided Wine Tasting (length varies based on # of wines)
91-120 Q&A with a Wine Expert
