Taste the world and bring DEI into action
At Tasting Experiences, we believe that food and drink tastings are not just about satisfying your taste buds, but also about learning something new. That’s why we’ve paired our tastings with important Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) subjects.
We love to mix things up by providing both virtual and in-person experiences that are all about exploring DE&I through food and drink. Our tastings allow you to discover new flavors and cultures, while also gaining knowledge and understanding about important DE&I topics.
Our goal is to help companies discover the world, while creating cultural intelligence and having fun exploring DE&I. We offer a wide range of tastings, from celebrating inspiring women, to hispanic heritage, and global diversity, among others.
It’s the perfect pairing – delicious food and drink with a side of DE&I education. Our tastings offer a unique way to learn about DE&I in a fun and engaging way. So come on, let’s indulge in some tasty treats and expand our minds together!

Why are Food & Drink Tastings a great tool to implement DEI into the workplace?
Virtual food and drink tastings are becoming increasingly popular as a way for companies to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace.
These events allow employees to connect over shared interests and learn about different cultures and traditions, while also supporting small businesses and promoting sustainability. In this article, we’ll explore how virtual tastings can be used as a tool to implement DEI practices in the workplace, using examples of events that champion the work of women in the wine industry, support small cocoa bean farmers, and promote organic wine production.
One of the most exciting aspects of virtual tastings is that they allow companies to celebrate the work of underrepresented groups in the food and drink industry. For example, a virtual wine tasting event could showcase the work of a female winemaker who has made significant contributions to the traditionally male-dominated industry. Guests could receive her wines and connect online to enjoy a guided virtual session, where they could learn about the winemaking process and the challenges faced by women in the industry. This type of event would not only work toward gender equity but would also create a sense of community and support for women in the wine industry.
Another example of a virtual tasting event that promotes DEI practices is a chocolate tasting featuring chocolates made with cocoa beans from small communities in Ecuador, Madagascar, or Uganda. The chocolate could be produced by a small chocolate maker that supports these communities, creating a connection between employees and people from different cultures and backgrounds.
This type of event would help participants understand cultural differences and promote sustainability, while also supporting small businesses and promoting economic growth in developing countries.
Finally, a virtual wine tasting event could focus on promoting organic wine production. By showcasing a winery that has shifted to full organic production, employees could learn about the benefits of sustainable agriculture and the importance of reducing the use of harmful chemicals in food and drink production. This type of event would promote environmental sustainability while also supporting small businesses and promoting healthy living.
In conclusion, virtual food and drink tastings are a great tool to implement DEI practices in the workplace. By celebrating the work of underrepresented groups in the food and drink industry, supporting small businesses, and promoting sustainability, these events create a sense of community and connection among employees while also promoting important values and practices. Whether it’s a virtual wine tasting featuring a female winemaker, a chocolate tasting supporting small cocoa bean farmers, or a wine tasting promoting organic production, these events provide a fun and engaging way for employees to learn, connect, and celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
