Zoom Into Wine is a new, FREE, online wine tasting experience with Wine Expert Ian Blackburn!   It’s free to join the 7pm tasting every Wednesday and Saturday – just pre register! 

At WineLA we have hosted wine tastings and educational seminars for over 25 years. While we are not able to get together and toast in person at this time, this new platform provides a great way for wine lovers to social distance and have fun.

It will be raw, unedited, un-produced, but practiced and personal. I can’t promise I won’t go political…! can’t promise I won’t get drunk …I can’t promise the wines are going to be the best you’ve ever had…but they should be really good!!! I can promise this will be 100% authentic, I will tell the story of the wine, and will share my insights.  

Each Zoom Into Wine will be distinctly different, some will feature numerous bottles, some will have special guests. A story told with every wine, taking you behind the scenes of some great wines and grapes…a few laughs and some insider knowledge. Then around minute 25…IT’S THE NO RULES ZONE! The experience comes to a conclusion and who knows what we will be talking about…but wine will influence the discussion and direction.  

Want to be a participant? Sign up for free with the option to purchase a set of each week’s wines. The wine kit costs will vary, and most are below cost. Sign up on wineLA with wine purchases through merchantofwine.com

Taste the wine with the hosts of the show! Wine Kit Delivery is included within 25 mile radius of 90012, as are all wine orders on MerchantofWine.com
