Perfect Pairings Virtual Wine Concert - Van-Anh Nguyen X Winona

Love music? Love wine? Well well well, you’re in for a treat. Reawaken your ISO-numbed senses with this special synergy of wine and music via virtuoso pianist Van-Anh Nguyen. Van-Anh has been running her wildly popular concert series ‘Perfect Pairings’ for a few years at venues around the world, but this is the first time she’s offering it virtually. Voyage around the world with three wines guided by guest sommelier Laura Hicks, and three accompanying piano performances curated by Van-Anh, all in the comfort of your own home. Fancy a Tango with your Malbec? Yes please. Dress up, dress down – you do you (BUT Van-Anh will be giving a special prize for the best dressed).

By joining this event, you'll have supported small businesses as well as artists, two industries of which have been so heavily affected during this COVID19 pandemic. We appreciate your love and support so much and hope you have fun with us!

HOW IT WORKS
YOU HAVE 2 WAYS TO ENJOY THE CONCERT PAIRING EXPERIENCE

 

OPTION 1 - THE FULL EXPERIENCE (WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS)

  1. Purchase the online ticket here.
  2. Head over to WINONA to place your wine order and they'll deliver you the wines and we'll send you the Zoom ID & code to enter the concert. You've now supported both artist AND a local small business! We appreciate you!
  3. Sign into Zoom on Friday May 8, 2020, 7:30pm and enjoy the concert. Why not get frocked up - we'll have a special prize for BEST DRESSED!

OPTION 2 - CONCERT ONLY

  1. If you have bottles at home which you'd like to drink, you can still participate in the concert. You'll just need to purchase a ticket and we'll send you the Zoom ID & code.
  2. The tastings & pairings will be based on a Pinot Gris, a Malbec and a Shiraz so we recommend you follow these varietals.
  3. Sign into Zoom on Friday May 8, 2020, 7:30pm and enjoy the concert - in between pieces, we'd love to hear your reasons of why you're drinking your chosen wine. It's a fun, educational and sharing process. Why not get frocked up - we'll have a special prize for
