SommChat Virtual Experience featuring Black River Caviar

Keeper Collection is excited to announce our first ever SommChat Virtual Tasting Experience – Caviar & Champagne! On Sunday October 25, 2020, 5PM CDT, in partnership with Black River Caviar, join us on Zoom for a professionally guided tasting of Black River Caviar with recommended Somm-selected Champagnes to pair.

This year marks the 10-year anniversary of SommChat, our weekly live interview series with hundreds of notable beverage professionals from around the world. In this age of video, we’ve been inspired to expand this franchise to provide access to educational and fun content to more of our community by launching the SommChat Virtual Experience. We’re honored to partner with Black River Caviar in the inaugural Caviar & Champagne Virtual Tasting.

In this one-hour virtual tasting, join a live panel of Master Sommeliers and caviar specialists to learn about the history, excellence, and sustainable practices of Black River Caviar, along with how to pair it with Champagne for an elite experience you won’t soon forget.

Black River Caviar produces only Oscietra caviar, a grade of caviar that is widely considered to be the very best. They are one of the few sustainable farms who sell "farm direct", so you can be assured of quality, flavor, and freshness. Normally, this product is only available to restaurants, but this month, we are partnering with Black River Caviar to offer a special tasting direct to our VIP members at very special pricing.
