' Lenne Estate - virtual-tastings

virtual tastings

Our Virtual Tastings are on pause as of June 2020, with the tasting room once again open to customers. We will return with more virtual tastings in the future, likely timed to new wine club releases. Thanks for your interest.

Great wine is best enjoyed with friends and family, and the social interaction is a big part of the fun of going wine tasting. At Lenné, we miss offering wine chat and education as much as our customers miss receiving it, so we're using technology to bridge that gap during the Covid-19 isolation period, and continuing through the end of May even with the tasting room again open to the public.

Our virtual tastings are broadcast live @ Lenne Estate Instagram  

Lenné Winemaker Steve Lutz and Hospitality Manager Eric Bruce will taste and discuss new releases, library wines, vineyard doings, answer your questions, and much more. Anyone can watch and submit questions via Instagram. All videos are archived in our YouTube channel.
