Local Wine Loving Mom Launches In-Home Wine Tasting Business in Sarasota

Goodbye stuffy wine snobs…hello casual, fun wine sampling from the comfort of your living room.

Sarasota, FL, August 28, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Sarasota wine lovers are raising their glasses in celebration of one of the country’s fastest growing home-based wine businesses setting up roots right here in Sarasota. Darlene Nicholson has been named a Wine Consultant for The Traveling Vineyard®, a national business that supports home wine-tasting experiences across the United States.

“I’m looking forward to introducing friends and neighbors to the joys of wine through free tasting events that allow them to sample and order high quality boutique wines from The Traveling Vineyard,” said Nicholson. “It’s hard to know if you like a wine unless you try it first. I’ll bring wines into your home where you can discover new varietals in a relaxed, pressure-free environment. Plus, it’s just plain fun! I always make sure my guests have a great time. What better job is there then getting paid to drink wine and meet new people?”

The concept of in-home wine tasting is a totally new to the Sarasota and surrounding areas. Now you don’t have to venture to a winery or even leave the comfort of your home, wine tastings are now a great reason to gather friends to laugh, learn, and enjoy fine wines. Recent wine tasting host and local real estate agent Suzanne O’Neil shared her experience, “This was a great reason to get together with my friends. We all love wine but had never tasted many of the types that Darlene brought for us. I was really impressed with the wines and Darlene made it informational and fun. It was the best girl’s night in ever! Now we are planning one every month.”

What to expect at a Traveling Vineyard Tasting:
- A gathering of 8-20 wine loving friends
- 5 Free wines provided (usually 2 white, 2 red, and a dessert wine)
- Learn about wine and food pairings
- Sip and buy new wines without the risk
