What you'll do

At or before starting time for the event, you'll be met on arrival at the door with a glass of Sekt (German sparkling wine), and assigned a VR headset. For the first 15 minutes or so, we will discuss the use of VR, why it is a perfect learning tool for wine, and start drinking! Cheeses will be paired with the wines to illustrate how flavors change when they work together. The first wine typically comes with a generous amount of conversation and Q & A, and an explanation of just about anything wine or tech related that may arise. The goal of the tasting is to provide each participant with their very own "ah-ha" moment, when wine becomes more than just white or red or sparkling. At the end of our tasting hour, you will find yourself equipped with a new way to understand how your senses work together, a new skill, and more confidence when shopping for or ordering wine.

This wine tasting is perhaps a microcosm of the city: the intersection of tech, culture, fun, and new experiences. We hope to entertain you and your friends soon in Berlin.

Cheers!
VRWein Team
Other things to note
We are indeed drinking real wine! Please be 18 years of age or older. There is an elevator up to the 5th floor where the flat is located, however it is small and may accommodate only 3-4 guests at a time. I speak German as well!

My name is Robert Pierce and I believe wine is one of humanity's greatest inventions. It's perishable art! I am an ethical tech advocate, a humanist, and a wine professional. I believe everything that can be fun, should be.
I'm passionate about what I do, and have done private events for anyone from first time wine drinkers to the most discerning wine writers and critics. This breadth of experience allows me to adjust on the fly to make sure everyone is having fun, and their expectations are not only met but exceeded at every opportunity. Having said all that, the most important thing when hosting VRWein tastings is ensuring everyone is having fun and feels included. Wine and its circles can be very exclusive, but my aim is to create an inclusive environment for every level of experience! :) Cheers and I hope to see you soon!

Robert is a very charismatic and welcoming host. As a start we had a glass of sekt on his fantastic rooftop balcony, but since it was a bit cold we spent the rest of the experience in the flat, which in no way disappointed either. Rob has a long experience and love for wine, which he could transmit. It is not a static experience, very much depends on how much you know, you want to know and want to drink, as Rob can adapt respectively. It is a great way to experience wine, had a nice talk and meet new people! Absolutely recommend. We had an awesome time - thank you!!

Robert and the entire activity was so amazing. I highly recommend everyone who has the chance to book Robert for this activity. I learned so much whilst having so much fun in such a safe environment. I have always enjoyed wine, but after this I have gained tools to enjoy and experience wine on a whole new level and get so much more out of it. I will definitely be more confident when ordering wine in a restaurant from now on. Robert was super knowledgeable, including, open & warm. Robert instantly created a really special and warm atmosphere and made us feel at home right away. He adjusted the tasting to fit us perfectly and was really responsive in every way. So, I cannot recommend this enough, it was such a unique and purely positive experience. Thank you Robert!
