on April 15 for online customers who purchase 3-pack
CARMEL VALLEY, Calif., — A proper wine tasting normally takes place in a crowded, convivial tasting room — with plenty of sipping, smiling, handshakes and hugs.
Due to social distancing rules surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, that isn’t possible at this time. But Twisted Roots Vineyard has found an alternative to visiting its Carmel Valley tasting room. Thanks to online purchasing, convenient shipping and the virtual conference app Zoom, Twisted Roots winemaker Josh Ruiz can lead wine enthusiasts through an interactive tasting of the winery’s finest vintages.
Twisted Roots is currently offering a free virtual tasting on April 15 when customers purchase three bottles of wine (Chardonnay, Cabernet and Petite Sirah). The total cost for the wine is $60 (more than a 30 percent discount). What’s more, Twisted Roots has waived delivery fees for customers in Monterey County.
Upon purchase of the three-pack through this link on the website www.twistedrootsvineyard.com, customers will receive a Zoom invitation to participate in the virtual tasting with Ruiz and his wife Julie. The 45-minute tasting begins at 5:30 p.m.
