“Our blind tasting with Argaux was incredible! The whole process— from ordering to delivery to the workshop—was seamless and enjoyable. And Lexi and Lauren were great teachers and hosts. We got great feedback from participants during and after the event and can’t wait to do it again!!”
Greg Zeborak and Evan Markiles
“Everyone had fun and learned something. Personally, it was my first wine tasting. The notes were helpful and easy to follow, so much so that I was able to make good guesses (I missed the grape, got the countries).”
“Arden joined us for a virtual blind taste testing happy hour and truly brought the experience to life! She thoughtfully took us through the steps to see, smell, taste, and even identify each wine which transformed each sip.”
“Argaux’s Quarantine Edition Blind Wine Tasting Kits were exactly what I needed to spice up a VIRTUAL corporate happy hour. Not only is it an excellent treat to send right to participant’s doors, but it also makes it feel like the virtual room is together. A huge thanks to Argaux for their excellent customer service and quick turnaround – my attendees are still talking about the event 3 weeks later!”
