Wine Auction Challenge™ Wine Auction Challenge™

What's it all about?

A fast-paced tasting where guests assess a range of wines before placing bids in a mock auction.

This is the fifth event that Taste of the Vine has run for my client group. Each new event surpasses the last in overall product quality. Guests are continually impressed with the challenge element and the knowledge they gain in participating, whilst never being intimidated by any lack of personal knowledge.

During the introduction your host leads guests on a tour of their senses, allowing them to discern what constitutes quality in wine, as well as how to assess age and ability to age. After the introduction, guests taste a range of wines blind, both in teams and individually, before placing bids based upon what they consider the wines to be worth. The event also contains a wealth of anecdotes, humour and other interactive elements.

This format is based on Francis and Richard’s time working for fine wine brokers. Wine styles will be chosen to suit your preference.

External events

This format is suited to client events, networking, press launches and conferences.

Your event can be run seated, with a high level of interaction, or from stalls where the tasting is a feature of the event. Your hosts’ material will be prepared with your audience in mind, be they seasoned tasters with a thirst for information, or a group with a hunger for humour.

Internal events

The format can be tailored to suit objective-driven team building.

We start with your desired outcome and then create a structure that will assist increased communication within your group.
