Corporate Events

Wine knowledge has value in a business context.  When you have to choose the wine at a business dinner, knowing how to spot the ‘gems’ on a wine list can impress clients and colleagues, and help you spend company money wisely.  When you want to choose a special wine as a business gift, knowing how quickly zone in on key varieties and regions is an asset. And as your wine knowledge builds, your confidence and satisfaction with your wine decisions will grow and grow.

For corporate clients, some of the most requested topics include:

  • Wine as a Business Tool
  • Entertaining with Wine
  • Wine and Food Pairing

The Wine Coaches also offers “The Wine Challenge”, a teambuilding experience that will expand participants wine knowledge in a fun and semi-competitive way. “The Wine Challenge” can be customized to the level of wine knoweldge of the group, and presenting wines “blind” allows everyone to participate and benefit equally. Prizing is optional, and can be arranged, or the winning team can simply leave with bragging rights for answering the most questions correctly.

Also offered: sommelier-guided wine tasting workshops, during management retreats, conferences, or client appreciation events.

Programs can be as brief as one hour, or as comprehensive as a full day.  The Wine Coaches will conduct your program at the venue of your choosing, whether a residence, office, or licensed establishment.  The Wine Coaches can assist with sourcing of wine, wine glass rentals, recommendations for caterers or restaurant venues, and assist with permits (if required).
