EVENT OVERVIEW

Fine-dining requires great food and is enhanced immeasurably by great wine. But more important than either of those, is the communal nature of sharing a meal with others outside of your own home. Restaurants are not fueling stations for the metabolism; they are restorative to the soul. An important part of that restorative experience is the communal nature of restaurant dining, coming together to share food and wine and conversation and fellowship.

 

The Zoom Wine Dinner sends the same wines and menu to your colleagues or business associates. The wines are sommelier-selected to match its corresponding course of dinner.  The sommelier and chef work together to bring you perfect pairing after perfect pairing.  

 

The food arrives all-but-finished, with simple instructions. It requires nominal effort from you and your guests. Can you drop a bag in simmering water for 7 minutes? Can you put something in your toaster oven at 350° for 10 minutes? Then you can finish the dinner with ease and share time with your colleagues.

 

The Zoom Wine Dinners is hosted by a restaurant personality who has run four-star restaurants and operated high-end wine shops, and has been a professional wine and spirits judge. The host is fun and he knows what he is talking about.

FOR YOU

TO DO

Need to place order for wine and dinner shipments three weeks before event.

STANDARD POLICY FOOTNOTE: Once you pay for the event, our ConnectRcentral vendor has reserved that date and time for you and thus will turn down any other event for that time slot. Bookings are final. However, things happen so if you need to change a date, we will do our best (but there are no guarantees) to see if the vendor can reschedule your event. 

"Thanks for the wonderful event. It was remarkable during COVID to actually feel like we were having dinner all together. Food and wine were great, and we even learned a little something."
