Wine Tasting – A Perfect Autumn Activity

Glasses in a row 1024x609 Wine Tasting   A Perfect Autumn ActivityAs we say goodbye to summer (although hopefully we’ll have a few more balmy days) we look forward to autumn with the leaves turning to rich, vibrant colours
and being cosy inside warming ourselves in front of a roaring fire and enjoying a lovely glass of red wine.

Whether its red, white or rosé wine that takes your fancy or maybe all of them depending on your mood, dishes you’re matching wines with or simply the occasion, there’s lots of ways to have fun with wine.

The blind tasting masterclass is always a good one to choose and gets everyone talking about the wine or wines in question. Or if you’re looking to perhaps focus on a specific country, region or style of wine, we can look to tailor your wine tasting to suit you and you team. Two of our popular wine tastings are Asian Influences and California Dreaming, but it’s really up to you to choose the topic that’s right for you. We are flexible with where we can hold the masterclasses too. They often take place in our California Bar, but can set up our Calistoga or Oakville suites to accommodate larger groups.

If you’re looking for something a little different then our cocktail masterclasses provide aCheese board with wine 377 x 221 150x150 Wine Tasting   A Perfect Autumn Activity perfect situation for further networking to take place in a fun and informal way. Our Gin Masterclass is a big favourite amongst both our corporate and leisure guests due to the rise in popularity in gin in recent years. Making your own cocktails is really interactive and is a enjoyable way to spend an hour learning new skills and catching up with colleagues. For the beer and cheese lovers among you, you’ll be pleased to hear that we also offer beer tasting and cheese tasting.

Always mix business with pleasure

If being locked in a hotel conference room in the city for 8 hours isn’t your idea of getting a fresh perspective, we’d be delighted to offer something a little different. We offer plenty of “Only at The Vineyard” activities to inspire and motivate.

The wine discovery experiences are always popular:

  • Aromatic Grapes – enjoy tasting wines made from aromatic grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Shiraz
  • The Art of Wine Tasting – learn how to taste wine from the experts
  • Old World vs New World – which will be your favourite style of wine?
  • Discovery – excite your taste buds with rare and intriguing wines
  • Blind Tasting – an equal number of French and American wines to try. Will you guess correctly?

Other activities that are equally fun to try:
