Just because social distancing is the new norm, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on wine with friends!
And the best part? You don’t have to worry about driving home afterwards.
Zoom, easy to use video conferencing software, has become the best way to socialise in self-isolation. No need to miss out on book club—or wine club for that matter. There is no user limit on Zoom, add as many friends as you like, plus users can choose to record sessions as well as use a chat function.
How to host a Zoom Wine Party!
Install the software then agree on a day and time to for the party, it’s important to designate a host who will need to set it up and send out the invitations. The free version of Zoom limits your time to 40 minutes, so bear in mind if you want to sip-and-chat for longer you will need to sign up for one of the paid levels.
While there is no user limit; it is advisable to keep the gatherings small for sake of conversation. Otherwise it can get noisy.
Get a little geeky and theme it. Why not try our First Lady Summer Box? A selection of First Lady Sauvignon Blanc, First Lady Chardonnay and First Lady Rosé, two bottles of each. And chat about your favourite summer memories, while sipping on liquid sunshine.
Sure, it’s perfectly appropriate to Zoom in your PJs, but why not take the opportunity to shake off the doldrums and wear something else?
Pour a glass of First Lady wine and hit ‘join the meeting’. Enjoy!
P.s 10% of proceeds from sales of First Lady wines purchased via our online store will be donated to #StellenboschUnite, a collaborative initiative that is providing social support to vulnerable community members during the COVID-19 pandemic.
