AFTON, Va. (WVIR) - Afton’s Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery is going high tech when it comes to contactless tastings.

The winery has created Q-R codes with videos that guide you through wine tastings.

Winemaker Tim Gorman will virtually walk you through what to expect in each wine. He says the coronavirus pandemic has forced the winery adapt and find new ways for people to experience tastings.

“This is a way to go sort of a hybrid between the old tasting where we just had someone talking at you,” Gorman said. “Now you can just have your self-guided if you want it. Take your phone out and get a video about the wine right there.”

Gorman says they plan is to have many new wines coming soon that will eventually all have their own video, as well.
