You're Invited to the Second Annual



June 17, 2021

The Wine Origins Alliance is thrilled to present the second annual “Wine On Earth Taste-A-Thon,” a series of virtual tastings hosted by some of the world's most renowned wine regions all taking place on a single day: June 17, 2021.


The past year has taught us just how special the simple act of coming together over a bottle of wine can be. Whether you are still social distancing or celebrating a welcome reunion with friends and family after a difficult year, wine can still bring us together. After all, it's always 5 o'clock somewhere!


The Wine on Earth Taste-A-Thon invites you to sip great wines from unique places all over the world – at any time, from any time zone, and from the comfort of your home.

Find a virtual tasting below to join #WineOnEarth and toast to #LocationMatters. Make sure to share your photos and videos with us on TwitterFacebook and Instagram.
