How to Host the Holidays, Virtually

The holidays are here! Whether you are connecting with friends, families or colleagues from afar, planning an online activity can be overwhelming. Don’t worry, at Clif Family we’re here to help you create and share a special experience.

Here are some of our favorite ideas for treating your friends and family to a festive night of virtual fun.

Cheers with a Virtual Tasting Kit

Host your own party! Select a date, set up your Zoom, and invite your guests. Surprise everyone with a Clif Family Virtual Tasting Kit that includes a bottle of wine paired with the perfect snack and party favor. Make it a costume party… throw an Ugly Christmas Sweater contest or have everyone show up with their best holiday flair. Prep your partygoers by creating a holiday playlist to share beforehand. Or send an Evite or paper invitation to get everyone in the mood to celebrate.

Holly Jolly Holiday Tasting Kit – Everyone gets a present! Unwrap, unwind and sing along to carols while enjoying our favorite holiday food and wine pairing. Or pop the cork on a bottle of bubbles and toast the New Year with our Countdown to 2021 Tasting Kit.

Curate a Virtual Private Gathering

Bring a little bit of Napa Valley to your guests for a special private tasting experience with Clif Family. Your evening will involve wine, food, and great conversation led by one of our talented Wine and Food Educators. To set a date for your gathering, query with our Virtual Tasting team. Culinary enthusiasts are encouraged to ask for our ingredient and recipe packet to take their experience to the next level as a Virtual Dinner Party. Executive Chef John McConnell has curated an approachable and delicious selection of recipes to highlight your flight of wines and make the night truly memorable.

Learn Something New

Throw a Blind Wine Tasting Party. Test your palate with this fun and collaborative, un-hosted wine tasting kit. Choose Red or White and prepare to swirl, sip, and strut your wine knowledge. Ask how you can elevate this experience with a selection of California artisan cheeses through our partner, Cowgirl Creamery. Everyone loves wine and cheese!

Surprise and Delight with a Doorstep Delivery

The Clif Family Holiday Gifting Shop is open and we’re shipping now. Select from curated gift sets that will satisfy anyone on your list. Who wouldn’t want to receive chocolates like our very popular Dark Chocolate Indulgence gift set? And support sustainability with our Dollop of Sunshine or Dreaming of a Green Holiday gift set.
