We are just starting to have suppliers, wine producers or winemakers begin to travel back to Jersey and visit us here at Dunell's in person. Thankfully throughout the last couple of years, technology has allowed us to maintain our wine tastings using 'zoom' but now we can host again in person we have decided to run some events in person, some still via zoom only and some in-person and via zoom at the same time. We have been delighted by the response and have received some amazing feedback.
Whilst Covid is still with us, our tastings continue to been an really amazing entertainment opportunity at home opening up our wine world to those who are unable to attend in person or maybe have not yet been to one of our in-house tastings. Maybe they feel nervous to attend in a physical group environment or worried they may ask a silly question (there are never any silly questions, we've heard them all), maybe it's the cost of taxi fares home or other factors. Virtual tasters are also able to choose whether or not to ask questions and even whether or not to turn on their video link. Many have been happy to cook throughout the tasting, enjoying our food pairing suggestions and then there's no taxi or bus service home afterwards.

Example Virtual Tasting...
Here is an insight into one of our virtual tastings held on 22nd May 2020 with Doug Shafer, LIVE from California.
Shafer Vineyards is one of the star wineries, not just in Napa Valley but in all of California and is a much celebrated producer of top quality Chardonnay, Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is also one of favourites and we were absolutely thrilled that Doug was going to fly to Jersey and host this prestigious event at our Beaumont shop. However, due to COVID restrictions that was unfortunately not possible. Instead, Doug very kindly agreed to host the event live from California via zoom direct to our homes and we are so glad he did. What an event it was!
