Here at Crummbs HQ, it’s no secret that we love a glass of wine. Always keen to brush up on our knowledge, we’re partial to a wine tasting but so often find them to be a little stuffy.
Enter – VIVANT! This new interactive online platform connects winemakers, consumers and expert wine advisors in live stream wine experiences. We found it super engaging, with interactive quizzes at the end of each section to ensure you’re really taking in what’s being taught. We’re pretty competitive too, so we’re not gonna lie, we loved the leader board aspect too. It would be really fun to play along with friends and family in different households.
You’ll learn more about the world’s most iconic wine regions from the comfort of your own home, with a beautiful experience kit containing test tubes of all the wines you’ll try in your tasting, and a big map of the area being studied, sent to your door prior to the event.
VIVANT launched with three French wine regions: Bordeaux, the Loire, and Burgundy which we tried. New experiences from Champagne and Alsace are kicking off 2021, with wine regions in Italy, Germany, Spain and beyond being added soon!
Not only is it a fantastic way of learning more about a certain grape or region, but it’s also a brilliant chance to sample exquisite wines that you might not be able to afford otherwise. VIVANT made the decision to only feature the world’s best tasting wines from responsible winemakers practising sustainable, organic and biodynamic viticulture, so you know you’re only getting the good stuff.
Annual membership starts at £149 and is available online at www.vivant.eco. One percent of all membership fees and wine purchases help fund innovative new ideas and research positively impacting a sustainable future for wine through VIVANT’s initiative 1% For Wine.
