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!

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.

I learned so much! I thought I had a decent grasp on wine but learned so much more during this class. I love that he personalized it to how we can look for wine on a day to day basis and know how to decipher what we like - I was always lost in a store. I will never buy based on pretty labels again!!

This was so much fun! Rafa comes prepared to make wine approachable for all. He is very kind and his passion for what he does could not be more evident. My group came away with solid tips for wine shopping, ordering at a restaurant, and foundational pairings with food/flavors. I highly recommend you book time with Rafa to learn something valuable, share some laughs, and to make a new friend.

Rafa and his wine class were so much fun! He was very engaging, knowledgable, passionate, and funny, and he had great answers for everything. I wish the session was even longer than an hour! Couldn't recommend more .
