The Winery Team Challenge delivers a fun, competitive and uniquely memorable wine tasting team building experience perfect for the end of the day meetings. It’s also a great either before or after a terrific dinner.
Your team is greeted by our knowledgeable sommelier, giving participants a brief, interactive and fun intro 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 program with our Salsa Showdown or add Guacamole and/or Margaritas for a Mexican Fiesta!
A table for every team, and a seat for each participant. We’ll also need a number of banquet tables for our supplies.
“I wanted to write to thank you for organizing our two holiday events that both went off smoothly. Everyone had a great time and really loved the events that we chose. I think the initial expression on everyone’s face when they saw we were doing ice sculpting was not so good, but Mark did a wonderful job turning that around in a matter of seconds! He was a pleasure to work with and really made the events fun. The winery couldn’t have been a better fit after doing the ice event. It was not only relaxing it had a lot of energy to it as well.”D.Z. – The Portland Group

“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!”Southwest Airlines
“Amazing! The event was a HUGE success! Everything was perfect – the participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I can’t say enough about how well it went. The word is already flying around the office about the success of the program and we already have another group thinking about using this program for an event of their own!”B.C. – Kronos
