I did a Napa wine tasting. At home. Here’s how it went.

“Last week I participated in a 26-minute wine tasting of a Sauvignon Blanc at St. Supéry Estate Vineyards in Napa. What I loved was the Mister Rogers-friendly vibe. The charming CEO Emma Swain welcomed us to St. Supèry at Home saying: “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. And won’t you be my neighbor here, sharing a glass of wine with all of us?” (And yes, I poured myself a glass to be a good neighbor.)

Watching the video (which had been live-streamed and then posted), I learned about Dollarhide Sauvignon Blanc and saw the tasting room and the vineyard, but I had time to enjoy “meeting” Michael Scholz, vice president of winemaking as he educated me about the grapes. More than 60 people attended.”

St. Supéry Estate Vineyards, a sustainable Napa winery whose wines include Single Vineyard and Napa Valley Estate blends, began a six-week Injoy @ Home virtual tasting program Thursday on Facebook Live and Zoom (a login is included with the kit).

Swain said the company has offered virtual tasting kits for years. For the six-week program, it chose St. Supéry wines that are widely available around the country. On Thursday, the tasting will feature a 2015 Rutherford Estate Vineyard Merlot. Wine fans can order a specially priced six pack of the wines to be tasted for $267 (discounted to $210 for wine club members).”
