Virtual Finger Lakes Wine Pairing Experiences

Join Certified Sommelier, owner of  Experience! The Finger Lakes, and Wine Instructor, Laura Winter Falk, PhD, as she guides you through a virtual pairing experience with Finger Lakes wines and local cheeses or chocolates right in your home. Our spring virtual wine series was such a success, we are launching a brand new line of Virtual Wine Tasting experiences with new wines and new pairings!  Through a collaboration with Triphammer Wines & Spirits, artisan cheese and chocolate makers, and our partner wineries, we provide this virtual experience with Wine and Cheese, Chocolate, or Charcuterie Pairing Kits delivered directly to your door. Each kit contains more than enough sipping and eating for 4-8 people. Join your friends and people from around the country in a sommelier-curated wine and food pairing zoom presentation that will showcase the magic of pairing with intention.

Booking for all virtual experiences must be made at least 10 days in advance to ensure enough time for delivery.  At the time of booking, we will request your shipping information and process your order as soon as possible. We offer public virtual pairing events on Fridays and Sundays where anyone can sign up and join the fun.  Private virtual wine pairings can be scheduled any day of the week based on availability.

Have fun while helping support the Finger Lakes region’s local dairies, farm wineries, food producers, and small businesses by purchasing your Virtual Pairing Kits today!
