Gift Your Friends. Create an online gathering. Taste + Learn from an Expert.
Due to recent physical distancing, virtual gatherings over platforms like Skype, Messenger, Instagram, and Zoom have become very popular, including happy hour and friends getting together over wine. But missing is the experience of talking to a wine expert as you taste along with your friends or work colleagues.
The Okanagan Crush Pad (OCP) team has a solution: invite them to take part in your tasting.
While the winery has previously posted video of guided tastings, the makers of Haywire, Narrative and Free Form are now going a step further. Just follow these four steps:
- Can’t get together in person? Round up the people you are missing most;
- Each person buys a wine tasting pack (2 full bottles and 1 half bottle);
- Set a date and time for your online tasting with your friends;
- Coordinate the details with OCP Wine brand ambassador
*An OCP team member will be part of any gathering where four or more wine tasting packs are sold (12 bottles total – 8 full bottles and 4 half bottles). There is no maximum size, but the ideal gathering would be no larger than 12 different logins.
Crack open a baby sparkling wine while you all sign-on, and toast each other with a cheers!
A team member from the winery will join you for the tasting. They will tell you about the wines, answer any questions, and then they can leave the online party and you can carry on with your friends.

Helpful things to know for your Okanagan Crush Pad Virtual Tasting
To hold an online chat, you need:
- Internet connection, webcam, and microphone
- Video chat software that you can invite others to: Skype, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, House Party etc
- Note Zoom is super popular, but for the free version, you only have 40 minutes if there are more than 3 people online.
Once you have completed your tasting, the wines will easily keep in the fridge for a few days until you can consume them…responsibly 😊
To recap: connect with your friends and family over a virtual tasting. Pick one of the three-pack bundles (includes Haywire, Narrative & Free Form) or shop the site and create your own line-up.
Invite your friends to join you, set the time and date, and let one of our brand ambassadors host your virtual tasting with you.
