WineRelease.com's May 15, 2020 Monthly Newsletter.

This month we had 101 winery updates and 71 wineries releasing wine. Sorry for the publishing delay.

Last month I mentioned how a number of wineries are doing virtual tastings. I was one of 60-70 who livestreamed a tasting from Beckmen Vineyards where Steve Beckmen, winemaker, as he took us through a few white and red recent releases and answered questions from attendees. Even if you have been to wine tastings in person, I highly recommend trying out virtual tastings. Check your favorite winery Facebook and/or Instagram accounts for announcements.

And now, onto the wine releases...
