Looking for something different for celebrations, get-togethers or team event? Or do you want to just know a little bit more about wine in a relaxed atmosphere? Because in the centuries of drinking, one thing has never changed: You don’t drink a bottle of wine, you share it.
Wine tasting events are a fun and increasingly popular way to foster team-building or entertain clients. We create a relaxed atmosphere to network, reward and enhance relationships.
Some of our most popular packages are shown below, however we cater to exactly what you’d like for your event, so if you would like something different, just let us know.
Please contact Leah Griffiths to discuss pricing and the finer details.
HOW TO TASTE WINES BLIND
A brief introduction on how to taste wine.
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW
We put 3 New World Wines up against 3 Old World Wines and compare.
We taste sparkling wine from around the world and talk about production methods, the differences in taste and, most importantly, price. We will also bring a champagne quiz.
BLIND TASTING CHALLENGE – TEAM BUILDING
Our most popular event is a competitive, challenging, super entertaining and even a little addictive game where 6 benchmark wines are tasted blind. In each flight the teams try to answer questions about the wines e.g grape variety, country of origin, price range, etc. Our wine experts facilitate the game answering questions, providing guidance and tips so that everybody learns while having fun tasting the wines. The members of the winning team get an exciting prize.
POSH VS. PLONK
We blind taste 3 sets of 2 different wines: one is ‘posh’ (high retail value) and one is ‘plonk’ (lower retail value) and we try and decipher which is which. We have some education along the way and we can split off into teams and make a competition out of it.
CHEESE & WINE MATCHING EVENING
During this event you will explore a range of cheeses and match them with some classic wines from around the world. 6 cheeses and 6 wine combinations.
MAD CRUSH WINE BOOT CAMP
Put your palate through its paces at our Wine Boot Camp. Work out to our wine list, with the help of our trusty Sommeliers, lead by Julie Garton. Each week’s class takes the form of a work out. Warm up with a selection of palate cleansers, increase the heart rate with some hardcore knowledge, and warm-down with some cool discussion. The classes are focused around the sensory components of wine, and it is a great way to understand which style of wine you enjoy the most and introduce you to some new ones. Julie will also be there to answer any wine questions you may have!
Commit to getting your palate seriously fit – $250 for 6 weeks
Individual class $50

WINEMAKER & WINE AGENT EXPERT NIGHTS
These simple format nights take place around the square bar table at the front of the restaurant. Wine Makers or Wine Agents will be around to chat about their wines in an informal setting. No long talks, just you and your friends drinking tasty wine. Our calendar for these events is coming soon.
