We are in unprecedented times and our restaurants and local shops need our support now more than ever. While we cannot be together in person, we want to help our incredible wine and food community in Des Moines and keep them as busy as we can. So, we bring to you, Virtual Wine Flights.
This one will be a little different. Here’s the deal - Winefest has partnered with the Cheese Shop and Charles Heidsieck Champagne to bring you a wine and cheese class – all while social distancing. Stop by the Cheese Shop between 12:00 – 5:00 on the day of the Virtual Wine Flight. Come home and at 6:00, hop on Zoom for a fun class moderated by CJ with the Cheese Shop.
Cheese Shop on Saturday, May 23rd. You will pick-up the following delectable cheese and wine:
Charles Heidsieck Champagne
Two Cheese Shop Selections
La Mie Bread
Cheese, bread and one bottle of wine - $80
Order here, pickup between 12:00 – 5:00 and get home by 6:00 for a private Zoom class with Charles Heidsieck Sommelier and Ambassador, Phillipe Andre and Certified Cheese Professional and owner of the Cheese Shop, CJ Bienert. You will only be able to see this class if you purchase this flight!
Make sure you set up the Zoom app on your phone, tablet, or computer. (Tech-challenged? Here's a handy little tutorial.) Please test this well in advance of the class, so you don't miss anything. The private video conferencing link to the May 23rd class will be provided in a separate email sent the day of the tasting.
Log in by clicking on the Zoom link we will send you. The session will open at 6 p.m. so you can get settled (and drinking wine) — and figure out all of the techie stuff. The actual class starts at 6:30 p.m.
This is a ONE DAY ONLY EVENT WITH THE CHEESE SHOP! We expect a sell-out, so grab yours quickly before they are all gone! Pickup on Saturday, May 23rd between 12:00 – 5:00 pm at The Cheese Shop – 833 42nd Street, Suite B.
