SATURDAY 28TH NOVEMBER 2020
TIME: 13:15 - 13:30
This is the bit where we say hello and give you a warm welcome, before explaining what's going on.
You may see a slight panic in our eyes as we survey the sea of bottles we'll need to get through over the course of the day while still being able to make some sort of sense. The main ambition will be to make it past curfew time with a smile on our faces...
Check out our social media accounts (links above and below) for activity, or to send us in your thoughts or questions before, during or after Wine Festival Online. If you have any problems, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're tasting along, get your fizz, white, rosé and sweet wines chilled beforehand. Get your glasses ready and open the wines 5 minutes before the start.
If you'd like to comment on the video stream, you'll need to be signed into YouTube (or Gmail/Google). Otherwise, feel free to send in thoughts, questions, comments via social media.
Masterclass videos will go live on our home page and also on each Masterclass page at the scheduled time. We'll also post a live link at the top of each Masterclass page that will take you directly to our YouTube channel - maybe the best place to watch it, especially if you want to comment etc.
If you like the wines you're tasting, or you like the look of them if you're not, please do BUY BUY BUY! We're all thirsty, and we know good wine when we see it. But there's also the festive season coming up, with presents to buy and special occasions to be toasted.
Wine left over? No problem. Keep them in the fridge and they'll last a week or two at least.
Don't forget to take part in our fun competitions - we have some great prizes up for grabs!
