Yeah, yeah, yeah, another boring Virtual Event to attend. I hear this from my clients all the time before they’ve joined one of my Virtual Wine Tasting Events.
NOT happenin’ in my glass of wine!
Here’s a little secret…my Virtual Wine Tastings are not the everyday events where the speaker is sitting at a desk blabbering on, or in their kitchen running through the motions, or in a ubiquitous wine cellar.
I’ve upped the game with better video, audio, more action and conversation, and my secret weapon that allows me to engage with my clients most dynamically…
I take my clients on an “armchair” world tour of the wines we taste together, to the region’s, into the vineyards, along with customized visual tasting backgrounds to match the specific flavors of the wines we are rocking!
Here’s a breakdown of my typical Virtual Wine Tasting Events. (all customizable)
I HIGHLY recommend Fred and his services. He is a phenomenally fun Sommelier. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he is very entertaining as well. He makes the experience very memorable and enjoyable for each participant. His wine selections were excellent. The feedback we received from our customers was this was one the of the best virtual events they have attended.
Kristy Kendle – SVP Western Region – QBE
Fred brings such life and excitement to the education of wine. You could hire any number of wine educators for your event, but not everybody is engaging. I invited Fred to lead a seminar for the USA Today Wine & Food Experience…and it was standing room only. We then became friends and I’ve since hired him for more events and livestreams to entertain clients of banks and credit card companies. His ability to customize a program around the wishes of the client vs run with a canned seminar is one of Fred’s many talents. His high level of energy and excitement about wine is infectious. The fact that Fred just happens to know everything about the subject is just the bonus.

Had the privilege of attending a “virtual” tasting party with Fred recently. Although I consider myself knowledgeable, I learned more about wines and food pairings in ninety minutes than the last thirty years. The best part about the Zoom experience was that Fred kept the party rolling with his quips and tips while exposing us to affordable wines that everyone can enjoy!
Paul Quinn – P&C Advisor – Woodruff Sawyer
I engaged Fred to host a Virtual Wine Tasting to prospective members of our new community in Brooklyn Heights. Fred is the best subject matter expert I know, when it comes Wines and Spirits. He possesses a fun and engaging personality that really brought the event to life. The feedback was so overwhelmingly and unanimously positive.
Vincent Stewart – Director of Dining Services – Watermark Brooklyn Heights
Thanks so much for leading our schools’ select group of benefactors through a wonderful evening of wine tasting! Your expert blend of education, humor and personal anecdotes kept everyone engaged and made for a very enjoyable experience. Folks are already asking when we are doing the next one!
Tony Guevara – President – La Reina High School
Fred was an amazing guest speaker for our team. He was fun, energetic and passionate about wines and our team learned a ton. Highly recommend Fred for your next team event!
John Valentini – COO / CCO – Altfest Personal Wealth Management
Fred does an amazing job guiding your wine tasting experience through many regions. His knowledge of wine is phenomenal and his personality a plus. He guides you each step of the way from wine choices to food pairings. I highly recommended his services.

Fred Dex, MS is the guy you want to virtually explain wines to you! No pretension. No arrogance. Just fun, friendly, and useful info. He is really helping us understand wines better!
