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). To follow my wine journey and vineyard time, hit me @rafaeldelima91.

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!

We used this as a virtual team build, and our team absolutely loved it! They all loved how personal and fun the experience was! Rafael was a great host and we would absolutely recommend to anyone!

Rafa is engaging, fun, and created such a warm atmosphere to learn about wine in an informal setting. We did this as a virtual work event with 7 of us and had a great time! Rafa is extremely knowledgeable, had thoughtful responses to all of our questions, and I walked away from the experience more confident in knowledge about how to pick a wine for any occasion (without just looking for a nice label!).

Rafa was a gem - my team thoroughly enjoyed this experience! We learned a lot about wine, the process of making it, and Rafa’s background. He was extremely warm and inviting, and made everyone feel included. Would recommend to friends!

This is my third time taking one of Rafa’s tastings and as always it was awesome. I had three first-time guests join me and they raved about the class as well as how much they learned. 10/10 recommend!! Thanks again Rafa. We’ll be back!

Rafa's class was a perfect experience for clients. We had a group of 15, and he did a masterful job of engaging with everyone in a personal way. He did a great job of meeting everyone where they are on their wine journey and provided a lot of practical tips to make wine more approachable & better enjoy it.

Our community LOVED it! Rafael did a great job of providing great information about wine and then addressing our questions. He did a masterful job in managing the different questions and directions our group took the conversation and made everyone feel welcome and engaged.
