ACME Unfiltered ~ Gift this exceptional experience for the holidays
Just in time for early holiday shoppers, we are delighted to launch ACME Unfiltered, our new by-appointment-only private virtual tasting with moderated Q&A experience featuring some of Northern California’s hottest winemakers for the holiday gifting season.
Join an ACME sommelier, along with one of these famed winemakers, including Julien Fayard (Fayard Wines, Covert Estate, Purlieu), Maayan Koschitzky (La Pelle, Brilliant Mistake, Skipstone, Perfect Season), Aaron Pott (Pott Wine, Wingspan, Perliss) and Bibiana González Rave (Cattleya, Shared Notes, Alma de Cattleya), for an exploration of their wines and backgrounds.
As the holiday season approaches, ACME Unfiltered makes an ideal gift for the whole family or a group of friends to share. For businesses, an ACME Unfiltered experience provides the perfect icebreaker for virtual holiday parties and team building activities. ACME Unfiltered will allow friends, families and co-workers around the country to share an evening of wine and conversation with each other—safely. We will ship each participant three wines crafted by the selected winemaker prior to the Unfiltered session; all the attendees will need to do is pull the corks!
This 90-minute experience will be arranged on a mutually agreeable date for the ACME sommelier host, winemaker, the gift-giver and participant(s). ACME will select the featured winemaker and three wines he/she has crafted. ACME Unfiltered experiences have a $3,600 minimum to secure the fully private experience, which is met with 12 participants at $300/participant. The cost for additional participants will be the price of the curated three-pack of wines. Prices may vary depending on the winemaker and variety of wines they make; wines are subject to change due to availability. Email us for availability: email@example.com.
ACME Goes Virtual. Here's how you can discover new wines from the comfort of your home, and learn with the help of our sommelier-guided tastings via virtual interaction. Your host will guide you through this 1-hour experience, sharing the intricate details and story of up to three wines. These new tastings will be held via Zoom and private appointments can be made by calling 707.963.0440 or by emailing the ACME team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For groups of 2-8 people, please select from the following virtual tasting option minimums for an experience of three wines per household, shipped in advance to each participant's home.
- $150 Tasting Experience
- $350 Tasting Experience
- $500 Tasting Experience
This experience is ideal for smaller groups of friends and family. Each participant will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage with the sommelier hosting the tasting. After you decide on your preferred tasting experience, a member of our team will ask for your three favorite varietals in order to customize the experience for you and select the wines with your preferences and tasting experience in mind.
For groups of 9 or more, this experience is ideal for work colleagues, special events and business. Each participant will be able to ask questions during the experience by using the chat box. The pricing options remain the same, however one member from the group will be designated as the host working directly with the ACME sommelier to create the experience and coordinate shipment of the selected wines to each participant.
We look forward to raising a glass with you, your friends, family and/or colleagues!
