With the UK lockdown soon to enter week two, many of us are heading online to keep in touch and have a drink or two, and Edinburgh's Wine Events Scotland is inviting wine lovers to join in a virtual tasting,

Starting on Wednesday 1 April from 6.30pm, the tasting will be of the first three wines which will be delivered to your door as part of a case of six. The following Wednesday will be a tasting of the other three delivered wines.

How does it work?

Posting on their website, the team said: "When you place your order you’ll receive a case of 6 wines. We’ll taste 3 on Wednesday 1 April at 6.30pm and the following 3 on Wednesday 8 April at 6.30pm.

"The tasting should last 20-30 minutes, we’ll get a chance to chat together about the wines and your feedback will be welcomed. There’ll be a few rules to ensure we don’t get carried away with lots of people trying to talk but the aim is it’s going to be relaxed and informative.

"The app we’ll be using is Zoom so please download this here. You can use it on your phone but it works better on a PC or laptop – just make sure you have a microphone and speaker."

The wine delivery will include a complimentary tasting pack, which has a vacuvin wine saver pump and two stoppers, two laminated tasting mats, some drop stops, a fizz stopper  and two pens.

A tasting sheet will also be emailed to all participating and instructions how to sign onto the Zoom meeting along with a choice of delivery dates for the wines.

Cost and delivery

The first interactive home tasting is organics and the Americas and is priced at £78.
