Complete your next company dinner with sweet sangria history and some tasty competition! Did you know that the US recently surpassed France as the world’s top wine consumer? Foster creativity, celebrate teamwork and excite your taste buds with one of our best culinary team building events, the Winery Team Challenge.
This savory team bonding event kicks off with a brief, interactive intro to the history of wine, given by our knowledgeable sommelier. Your team will then be put to the test during an exciting game of sangria trivia! The challenge heats up when participants are divided into separate teams, where they will compete to create and market a tasteful winery.
Before creating their own blends, each group will visit the ‘marketplace’ where they will stock up on all necessary ingredients. Once teams have perfected their fruity sangria, they are challenged to add an artistic touch by creating winery logos and decorating their tables and aprons. They’ll also write and perform a jingle or commercial to enthusiastically sell their product to the judges.
After the final challenge, The Sangria Taste Test Contest, winners of each contest are announced with great anticipation. Teams receive awards in three categories: the winner of the Sangria Trivia Contest, the Best Marketing Campaign and Best Tasting Sangria!
