Help economic growth and resilience of our wine seller who has chosen to really focus on wine that respects the environment, the product and grapes as well as the consumer. Thanks to that, others local shops benefited as well as people went to buy cheese, meat and tapas to accompany the wine. Also thanks to the online tasting it was an opportunity to gather your "bubble" of people to have a nice evening together while learning about wine.


The idea was to organize an online wine tasting with 6 different wines. The occasion for gathering your loved ones in a nice atmosphere. An opportunity to give some publicity to our wine seller who dedicates his work to wine makers that respect the environement, the grapes and their story as well as the consumer. There is a lot about respect. Keeping in mind that Covid pandemic hit the economy, we wanted to bring solutions and help a local shop to re-invent themselves thanks to digital tools.
