All are hosted live by winery educators, who through the magic of technology can bring the wine country experience right to your own home. You can even customize an event of your own! All of these can be ordered up and gifted in time for the holiday.

Flambeaux Wine – Rather than just order wine, Flambeaux offers a full-on private virtual wine tasting experience with a member of the Murray Family, live from a picturesque setting within the estate vineyard and against the backdrop of Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley and Mayacamas Mountains. Participants learn about geography, the latest in the vineyard and just have fun. The Flambeaux are the dancing torchbearers of New Orleans Carnival during Mardi Gras, representing tradition, light, dance and joy. The Murray Family, originally from New Orleans, prides itself on making hand-crafted, limited-production wines that capture the essence of the Flambeaux Dry Creek Valley Estate Vineyard, as well as other world-class Sonoma County vineyards.
