Virtual Wine Tastings & Online Master Classes

By Gabriela Passos

With all this newfound free time we are all looking for ways to fill this time with things that inspire us and keep us motivated. A masterclass is a wonderful way to keep occupied while also learning new skills during quarantine. We wanted to share some options of Master Classes available with you.

Master Classes


This website is a wonderful resource because they offer a variety of masterclasses covering different fields and topics and only taught by those at the top of their respective fields. For example, they offer an acting class taught by the one and only Natalie Portman or you can take a class on Creativity and Leadership taught by no other than Anna Wintour. With a variety of different topics ranging from Culinary Arts to Business Politics and Society there is so much to choose from and so much to learn.
