MARGATE, FL - (Marketwire) - WineStyles, a national wine retailer, will be hosting a virtual wine tasting party featuring Michael Mondavi from Napa Valley's legendary winemaking family. The virtual wine tasting will be taking place on Saturday, August 21st at 6:30pm (ET) and will bring together a coordinated tasting across 30 WineStyles nationwide via video conference.
More than 800 guests will be welcomed to the virtual wine tasting by Michael Mondavi and will be treated to six wine samplings from Folio Fine Wine Partners including: Isabel Mondavi Deep Rosé, Hangtime Pinot Noir, Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Tenuta di Castiglioni, Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon, Palacios Remondo La Vendimia Rioja and Spellbound Cabernet Sauvignon. Each wine will be presented in a short video clip explaining the wine and guiding guests through the tasting experience.
Mondavi founded Folio Fine Wine Partners in 2004, whose mission is to find one-of-a-kind wines -- not only the most innovative wines from California, but also from emerging regions such as Spain, Argentina, Austria and New Zealand.
"I am thrilled to be partnering with WineStyles to host the company's first virtual wine tasting," said Mondavi. "Folio, similar to WineStyles, is breaking down the misconceptions that great wines have to be expensive in order to taste good, as well as offer exceptional value and quality. I look forward to guiding participants through an exceptional array of delicious wines from around the world."
