Partnering with Top Spirits and Wine Companies for Instagram Live Events Sharing Spirit, Community and Proceeds During COVID-19 Pandemic
San Francisco – Emily Martin, founder of Emily Martin Communications & Events (EME), The Jet Setting Fashionista (@JetSettingFashionista) and Pinots & Plaid Luxury Wine Event is collaborating with some of the top wineries, winemakers & culinary friends and partners in the wine, food and spirits industry to bring people together digitally and support community spirit amid crisis, while having a little bit of fun while helping support small business through hosting Instagram Live events on The JetSetting Fashionista.
“We all feel isolated during these extraordinarily challenging times, and now more than ever it’s important to have an opportunity to connect with each other, share stories to help brighten our spirits,” said Emily. “Even better if I can help showcase Wineries, Restaurants or other industry friends and help share their story and their products with my followers while also learning new things and having fun!” she said.
Emily, The JetSetting Fashionista has collaborated with some of the best names in the wine, culinary and spirits industry to offer lively and engaging discussions and tastings and also sharing discounts for pre and post Instagram Live Events (to help partners generate sales through the IG Lives). The program kicked off with a celebratory Champagne toast and educational Instagram Live featuring Billecart-Salmon Champagne and a local Wine Bar and client of EME, Velvet 48 located in Burlingame CA. Guests were invited to buy Billecart-Salmon ahead of time to join for the tasting while also supporting #smallbusinesses. Next, Emily welcomed Diane Mina of Diane’s Bloody Mary for a Bloody Mary demonstration, sharing information about her secretive recipe (available for sale at Williams Sonoma and BevMO) and ways to – literally – spice it up with help from celebrity chef hubby, Michael Mina.
