Still Go Wine Tasting: St. Supery winemakers in Napa Valley will be hosting an interactive virtual wine tasting each Thursday. The series will run through a tasting of one vintage per week, and the sampler pack can be purchased here. The winery will use Zoom to facilitate with the session and will share the dedicated URL closer to the time to those who have bought the sampler, as well as fans who express interest. It will be a two-way conversation – meaning participants can engage and ask questions.
Build Your Own Castle: Dromoland Castle, a 16th century castle in the Irish countryside of County Clare, is helping virtual travelers build their very own castle at home – when they aren’t able to visit. The Castle’s own Una Heaton, former museum curator and watercolor artist, is leading virtual arts and crafts projects for families to join while homeschooling. The first video is a step-by-step tutorial on how to craft a castle from materials found around the house, including big castle doors, stone towers and tiny Irish flags.
