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 and spend some time together with wine!

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.

FAQ (answers):
- I do this everyday, both for the timezone of the US and Europe. Depending on work at my vineyard, times available will vary. If no classes available is because they are sold out.
- The recommended wines and cheeses are a guideline, you can use whatever suits you best.
- Bigger parties accepted upon request.
- Spots are per person and not per screen (I don't like big groups)

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-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!

Such an amazing experience! Rafa went out of his way to make my bachelor party wine tasting a memorable experience, and was an absolute gem dealing with all of the degenerates.

Rafa was awesome! We did this as a team building event for work. Rafa fit right into the group with his humor and taught us so much! We all left with an experience that was better than what we could have hoped for. So happy we choose to do this!

The class gave me clues to expand my wine knowledge and to analyse and deepen my wine preferences. What a shame. If I had met him earlier, my trip in Porto and Douro Valley would have been more enjoyable. Next time in Porto, I'll definitely drop by his bar. Thank you Rafa, and see you someday in Porto!

My family and I really enjoyed this class! Rafa made it fun and the information was practical and much more helpful than anything we've learned at wine tastings in the past. Highly recommend!

This was a team-building event. Overall, the participants absolutely LOVED Rafe. Here are some quotes from the team: Denise C. says, "This was my first time taking a wine class. Rafe was very personable and made the class fun and very informative." Michelle H. says, "Rafe was very personable and I liked that he shared information on his background. I also liked that he followed up with his personal webpage and Twitter so we can follow him and have a personal "wine guy" for questions in the future. I also learned a lot and it was a fun class!" George V. says, "The wine class was very informational. I would love to get a more in depth overview from Rafa with specific recommendations."

This was my third class with Rafa and I feel I pick up something new every time! I’ve even organized a couple private classes for organizations that I am a part of and Rafa does a wonderful job of connecting with all of the attendees, answering questions (however silly or expert) and imparting his world class knowledge to his students. I highly recommend attending his class or booking a private experience for a group, friends or family.
