The Winery Team Challenge program delivers a fun, competitive and uniquely memorable wine tasting team building experience perfect for the end of the day meetings. It’s also an ideal event before or after a terrific dinner.
Your team is greeted by our knowledgeable Sommelier, giving participants a brief, interactive and fun introduction to wine, then leading the group in a white and red wine tasting.
After the tasting, groups are gathered into teams and each group becomes its very own winery. Teams are briefed about the interesting history of sangria, and then take part in an entertaining Sangria Trivia Contest before creating their own blends.
Their new found knowledge on wine and Sangria is put to the test as teams set off to concoct their own unique and delicious Sangria blend.
Participants take trips up to our “marketplace” stocked with ample portions of fresh fruit, spices, and other beverage supplies. With ingredients in hand, each team creates its own blend, along with everything they need to market it! They’ll develop a name, design a winery logo and label, and decorate their team aprons and tables for the ﬁnal judging and presentation. 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 are announced with great fanfare. Teams receive awards in three categories: the Winner of the Sangria Trivia Contest, the Best Marketing Campaign and Best Tasting Sangria!
Consider combining this corporate wine tasting program with our Salsa Showdown group cooking class or add Guacamole and/or Margaritas for a Mexican Fiesta!

I raved to many about the Winery Team Challenge and you will most likely hear from additional Southwest leaders looking to conduct the same activity
I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful evening last night. There were lots of laughs and good natured ribbing during the event and, by the accounts I have heard, a good time was had by all. I found working with your company very enjoyable…
"Our Sangria Challenge event was wonderful! From the original e-mails and phone calls with you to working with our facilitator, Jackie, and local wine expert, Austin, your company was very professional and the customer service was exceptional. "
“It was an amazing day… and the team really enjoyed Tools for Schools. It meant a lot to them to help children in the community. There were many teary eyes, including mine!”
Today was an awesome event! Our employees loved it! Paul was amazing! Thank you very much for the organized chaos! C’mon Down - Love it!”
Our Charity Bike Build donation event was a huge success. Matt and his team handled everything beautifully, and our group had a ton of fun. I heard nothing but positive comments afterwards. We will definitely recommend you to our colleagues.
