What you'll do

Learn about wine from the comfort of your home! (please read it all)
This is great for team-building. Reach out to book a private experience for your group or a specific date/time wished!

Here we will learn how red and white wine are made, how they differ, and most importantly, how to choose when you buy wine to enjoy at home. You would be amazed how people generally shop wine in a wrong way. We will then mention the main grapes and main regions of the world for those grapes, as well as the differences between them followed by some wine and food pairing (yes you will learn how to do michelin stars food and wine pairing)!

You might believe that all those tastings and all those vineyard visits you did taught you something. Just read the reviews and notice how most people believed the same untill they did this.

The recommended wine and cheese below are not mandatory, but it does make the experience better.

This will give you all the tools you need to be a better wine buyer.

In the US and the UK I can arrange wine to be shipped to your home.

FAQ (answers):
- The recommended wines and cheeses are a guideline, you can use whatever suits you best.
- Spots are per person and not per screen

I have experience in ultra luxury hospitality environments across 5 countries and 2 continents, including places like The Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale (USA) and Geneva Switzerland, Kempinski Malta, Rosewood London, and Michelin Stars in the South of France. I'm also WSET-certified from London school (currently doing the last level, 4), a wine producer with a wine tour related website (rafaeldelima.com).

I love to break down wine knowledge for people, using a good laugh and food in an enjoyable moment! While I'm also "stuck" at home, I'm at my vineyard and I want to share that vibe with you!

Rafa was an amazing host! He's very personable, engaging, and charismatic. He provided a great beginners' introduction into the wine world in an accessible and interesting way. He's super knowledgeable and great to learn from. He even encouraged us to message him with questions we have about wine in the future. We would absolutely do this again and highly recommend this experience to anyone!

I’m a wine drinking novice and wine connoisseurs can be mighty pretentious. But let me say this - Rafael is the most unpretentious expert you’ll ever meet. Massively qualified both academically and experimentally, Rafael is earnest and humble as he puts his viewers at ease. I learned a ton about wine drinking, but more than that, this felt like what I’d imagine a private tasting at his wine bar would feel like, sitting around with friends. Best online experience I’ve had with Airbnb!

A wonderful evening for a covid birthday. Rafa was very knowledgable and gave us some great information on wine. We are looking forward to learning more from him in the future.

We have been long term clients of Rafa’s since 2019, after meeting in-person at his wine bar in Porto, and since then doing many online wine tastings together. Rafa is amazing - he’s super helpful, personable, and fun. It is amazing how much practical wine knowledge he shares with you in a short amount of time. I can’t recommend his wine tastings enough!

It was a joy to take part in Rafael’s Session. His knowledge of wine is exceptional and his ability to conduct a zoom meeting with eight people was excellent. He is personable and friendly and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. A great time and a great way to learn about wine.

Rafael was a great, energetic and informative host. Rafael went above and beyond what we were expecting for a virtual class. Our family enjoyed the experience and would definitely do a virtual wine tasting with Rafael again.
