The Wine House, named one of the world’s best wine shops by Food & Wine, is excited to announce an exciting and immersive VR wine tasting experience to Southern California on Wednesday, January 15th at 7:00 pm. The event will bring three wineries from the LUX Wines portfolio to life, offering a high-quality, 360-degree virtual reality technology viewed on an Oculus headset. The event includes a seated tasting with virtual tours of three outstanding Italian producers: Jermann, Renato Ratti, and Allegrini. Representatives from each winery will be attending to guide participants through the tasting.
“Many of us have done vineyard tours, and I have been fortunate to visit all three wineries participating in this unique event, but I have never experienced anything like this before,” said Lance Montalto, Wine House Italian Buyer. “This VR immersion will certainly enhance participants’ wine-tasting experience by providing additional depth and understanding of the regions and wineries,” Montalto added.
This limited-seating event will offer each attendee the opportunity to use an Oculus virtual reality headset to enjoy new and unique winery perspectives, like aerial views. Participants also will enjoy nine incredible wines - three from each producer.
“Wine House customers love to explore, and they appreciate unique wine experiences,” said Bill Knight, President and Owner of Wine House. “We are always excited to present new and interesting events to our customers, and there is certainly a buzz surrounding this event since LUX held its inaugural events in New York and San Francisco,” Knight shared.
The Wine House’s Italian Virtual Reality Vineyard Tour and Wine Tasting takes place Wednesday, January 15th, at 7:00 pm. Those interested in attending the limited-seating event can register HERE.
