Our champagne team building experience is ideal for promoting a fun team working atmosphere. Guests are treated to an informative, light hearted and fun introduction to champagne and sparkling wine in an experience that is ideal for entertaining clients or as a pre-dinner activity. Upon arrival guests are served a glass of fizz to get their taste buds warmed up for the hedonistic experience to come, which includes interactive tasting games involving everyone. All the guests will learn some new skills taught by some of the world’s leading bartenders, where everyone can bond whilst having fun.
How It Works
Depending on the group size, our champagne team building usually takes 1.5 hours. During this time, a glass of champagne is served to guests on arrival with on average another 2 glasses per person will be served during the games. There are of course breaks to allow for a drinks service and mingling.
The champagne team building is a flexible event, and we’re more than happy to accommodate changes to the programme or shorter time periods. We also have several other formats available if your event has specific requirements.
We have mobile bars available, so we can attend a venue of your choice including offices, hotels or any other event space.
Champagne Team Building Event Programme
This is a more detailed overview of the champagne team building event programme.
- Reception Drinks
- Team Introduction
- Tasting Challenge
- Final Presentation
1. Reception Drinks
Upon arrival, all of your guests re served a glass of champagne and are shown to their seats.
2. Team Introduction
Once everyone is seated, one of our world class bartenders will introduce the team and run through an overview of the programme which prepares guest for the fun learning ahead. There will be an introduction and brief description of each of the major types of sparkling wine followed by a tutorial on how to taste fizz, using the reception drink as a guide.
3. Tasting Challenge
This is where things get really fun, and everyone is separated out into teams. The tasting challenge involves a total of 5 “blind” tasting rounds including Cava, Prosecco, non-alcoholic sparkling wine, Champagne and Vintage Champagne, all picked in a random order. After sampling each wine, it is up to the teams to try and guess the type of fizz, country of origin, price range and three tasting note descriptions from a variety of flashcards. Each round will be marked out of six for each correct answer.
4. Final Presentation
Remaining in the same teams, the guests are presented with one last glass of fizz.
Using their newly acquired knowledge of all things Champagne, they will then be invited to create a marketing campaign for the fizz they have been allocated, which they will then present to their peers.
The team will need to decide what type of fizz they have, where it is produced, the price they would sell it for and develop tasting notes. A brand name and label will also have to be created, and a box of fancy dress props will be provided to liven up their presentations!
If this is a team building exercise we can ask teams to incorporate the core value of their company’s brand into their presentation.
Prizes will be awarded for the best bar team and an individual prizes for bartenders in need of improvement!
