Virtual Event Format

Virtual wine tastings take place on the video platform, Zoom. Our Urban Affairs team will generate a video meeting link and send it to the event organizer a week before the event date, which the event organizer will be responsible for distributing to all attendees.

The Zoom meeting will be launched ten minutes before the event start time and a formal welcome will be given when the majority of attendees are present. Your Urban Grape educator will highlight each selection with fun stories and facts, encouraging participation from the attendees when appropriate. The last ten minutes of the event will be left open for questions and conversation.

Delivery of Wine

To ensure timely and accurate delivery of wines, participant information (including full name, delivery address, phone number, and email address) must be delivered to UG and the invoice must be paid a minimum of three weeks prior to the event date.

Delivery of wine within the 128-loop is included in the event base price, and will be completed by UG’s insured delivery drivers. Non-local deliveries cost $28 per delivery for up to 6 bottles via FedEx. The Urban Grape is a licensed Massachusetts FedEx shipping company. 

Tracking information for each delivery will be sent to the phone number and email address provided for each participant.
