What is the CX Uncorked wine event all about?
This unique and interactive 90-minute Zoom event will begin with a virtual wine tasting of three red wines, followed by a guided wine blending session where you will experiment, taste, test and create your very own red blend bottle (with your very own label!). This will be led by the winery’s sommelier, Linda!
During the last 30 minutes, while sipping on your perfect blends, we’ll open up the floor to discuss how to create and perfect the right blend when it comes to CX, including the fine balance of human + digital solutions.
When will I receive my wine?
You will receive your wine the week of the event (5-7 days prior)– please be prepared to receive and sign for the wine (or any adult 21+) to ensure you have it in time for the Friday event. We will send an email with your UPS tracking information once the wine is ready to ship. We have sent you an email to confirm your mailing address – please make sure it’s correct.
How do I join the wine tasting event?
You will receive an Outlook calendar invite with the Zoom link to join.
What do I need to do to prep for the event?
Once you receive your shipment please read through the instructions, and set the tasting wines, beakers and placemat aside until the time of the event. Make sure to have a pen on hand so you can take notes on your custom blend! We will meet on Zoom at 12PM PST/3PM ET so have your wine + materials ready + cameras turned on!
Have any more questions about the event?
Please reach out to Megan Long with any questions or concerns, or if you’re plans have changed.
