THE LOCKDOWN WINE TEST
Take part in the lockdown craze that’s sweeping the nation – host your own Lockdown Wine Test over Zoom, Teams, etc…!
Host the perfect event for your next Zoom meeting! We send everyone on your Zoom call 5 anonymous wines to sample. You show off your wine-tasting prowess, and see if you can spot the £20 wine! It’s the ultimate Lockdown Zoom party, ideal to play with your family, friends, colleagues or whoever…!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Sign up and we’ll deliver each participant 5 x 125ml measures of red or white wine and a score card.
Then arrange to get together on Zoom, and taste each wine at your own pace, making notes along the way – like which country you think the wine is from, which grape is being used, how much a bottle would cost, etc – or you can play a really easy version of the game, and just try to put them in price order! (it’s harder than it looks!?)
The wines will vary in price but start at £4 a bottle, and then typically £6, £8, £12 and all the way up to £20 a bottle! This week’s top wines were the white Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2020 and the red Valpolicella ‘Vigneti di Roccolo’ 2017. Can YOU or YOUR FRIENDS tell the difference?
We send the host (lead organiser) a sealed envelope with the answers to open LIVE at the end, so you can mark your scorecards and find out which of you should be working as a Sommelier, and which of you wouldn’t know a good wine, even if you had a glass of it in your hands!
The winner gets a certificate to remember their glorious success in the Lockdown Wine Test, but it’s not really about the winning! It’s about having a great night in, trying out new things, playing with your friends and family, and all for less than a round of drinks or a meal out!
OUR SAMPLE WINES RANGE FROM £4 - £20 A BOTTLE
WHO CAN PLAY?
It works brilliantly as a game for work groups who might have missed out on their Christmas Parties, families who sadly can’t be together just yet, as well as for friends trying to make the most of Lockdown!
We can send Lockdown Wine Tests to ANY number of participants and to ANY number of addresses right across the UK – so you can get them sent to one address for you to hand out to your (local) friends, or get them sent to 20+ addresses right across the UK. We’ll make sure you all have the same wine to taste!
We take all of the effort out of getting everyone set up with their Wine Test packs, so that you can concentrate on having a fantastic and memorable evening!
You obviously need to be 18 or over to play!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Each Lockdown Wine Test pack (of 5 x 125ml bottles) costs just
£25 £20, and delivery is just £4 per address (no limit on the number of packs sent to one address)! We’ve tried to keep costs to a minimum, so that as many people across the UK can play! 🙂
We send out 5 x 125ml measures of wine, which is probably enough for two people to taste, but we would recommend getting one Lockdown Wine Test pack each (625ml is approx 5/6 of a normal bottle of wine), as it makes things more fun, and it’s still less than you’d usually spend on a night out!
We send out our test packs every Tuesday by Royal Mail Tracked 48 (or Special Delivery if you prefer) so that you should receive them in good time for playing at the end of the week or over the following weekend. You’ll need to know everyone’s postal address now, and can book now for dispatch on any Tuesday (you choose).

What People Say...
It’s such a great idea, and brings two of my favourite things together – my friends and wine! I’m not the biggest wine expert, but was glad I could at least tell which wines were at the top end of the scale – even though I actually preferred the £6 one!

A fun mix of Wine Tasting and Zoom! Take the Lockdown Wine Test and amaze your friends and family with your wine knowledge – or just get it all completely wrong, and prove to yourself that you actually PREFER the cheap stuff (which is all you can afford) anyway!
