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!

What happens when you find yourself, and your employees in a work rut? Don’t worry, it’s pretty common. That’s why TeamBonding is here!

Let’s talk about these 4 tips for getting out of a rut at work!
Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
