HOW IT WORKS

The wines for this event are delivered to your home to arrive right before 7pm! Bottle Kits may arrive at your door earlier, but Flight Kits are carefully handled, managed, and delivered within a day of the event to maintain their freshness. If you join us for BOTH NIGHTS, two separate wine deliveries will occur. If your shipping address is outside of our Los Angeles courier delivery zone, we will also email you your tracking information so that you are aware of the expected delivery time. Signature is required!

The associated Zoom link will be emailed to you within 24 hours of the virtual tasting event. A printable tasting mat, digital brochure and link to the charitable auction will also be emailed to you. We recommend that you plan to enjoy a snack or dinner while wine tasting with the hosts on the Zoom! We also encourage you to have proper glassware to maximize the tasting experience.

Tastings typically run for approximately 90 minutes but may run longer if the conversation continues, as we encourage you, the audience, to participate and communicate with the experts. We pose fun questions and encourage participation in the chat box, too! Our tasting events will continue well past the end of the pandemic, as we believe online tasting is a fantastic format that allows us to assemble the greatest wine talent in the world and to deliver you an exceptional experience, regardless of your address!

*Shipping is included in the state of California. Out of state shipping is additional and will be invoiced after purchase.
*Featured select winemakers are recorded in advance for the STARS of White Wine virtual tasting event on Zoom. The brand importers and executives will be present to answer and engage with the audience.

Ian Todd Blackburn, Wine Entrepreneur

Being a wine anything wasn’t part of the original plan - and when you're raised in a military family, drinking wine may not be the first idea that comes to mind, either. Ian discovered the wine industry at the ripe age of 21 and didn't consider it a career option, but working for top chefs in the formidable dining rooms of early 1990s Los Angeles blew doors open - leading Ian to a career in wine education.

In 1995, he started the internet’s first website dedicated to teaching the world about wine: LearnAboutWine.com. Hosting 100 classes a year for about 20 years – Ian is finally starting to get the hang of this. In 2009, Ian and his best friend Clay Mauritson started making wine together: BeekeeperCellars.com; while this brand remains a small production, Ian hopes to grow Beekeeper Zinfandel into something special.Working with and around great wine brands for most of his adult-life, and leading wine tours and culinary adventures around the world - Ian loves to share his story and his passion.

When Covid shut down his wineLA.com event business, Ian pivoted full circle and restarted LearnAboutWine.com and launched ZoomIntoWine.com as a way to bring his version of wine education and entertainment to a limitless audience. With his family’s wine store Merchantofwine.com, virtual wine tastings with wine delivered "at home"; is the latest chapter in the evolution of Ian’s dedication to wine education and the wine lifestyle. This bio is a work in progress…let's see what the next vintage provides. In the meantime, Ian continues to study for his Masters of Wine and to write his next book about his journey.
