Wine Tasting

The Team Tactics International Wine Challenge is a friendly, entertaining and enjoyable wine tasting event that can be tailored to most participants – whether the party be senior personnel wishing to learn more about certain wines, or on a more relaxed basis where laughter and light banter is more the order of the day. The International Wine Challenge is suitable either as a standalone event for large groups or alternatively prior to a dinner, in which preferred wines tasted can then be selected for dining.

Team Tactics Wine Challenge is both fun and participative. This has proved to be a popular event to add to an evening to make something more than ‘just another dinner’. Every effort is made to assist those teams who may be inexperienced in matters vinous! This will ensure a level playing field for all the teams and maintains the competitiveness throughout the evening. The International Wine Challenge lasts approximately 2 hours and is suitable for groups of 10 guests and above.

We’re able to run our wine tasting events from almost any venue and would be happy to provide several suggestions. The Stafford Hotel Wine Cellars provide the perfect setting for a wine tasting event and guests may also enjoy a superb evening meal here as part of their experience.

International Wine Tasting Challenge

Guests will be welcomed on arrival by a glass of Champagne and we do like to also recommend nibbles at this stage. Our exceptional sommelier, who has been with us for over 12 years will welcome everybody to the evening and instantly put guests at ease.

A selection of 4 red and 4 white wines are tasted and each team will answer the multiple choice questions; sometimes a little help is given, sometimes some curved balls are thrown to maintain the competitiveness and enthusiasm for the evening. Points are allocated for correct answers and other points may be allocated (or deducted) if our host feels it is appropriate! Superb drinks prizes are presented to the winning and runners-up team by our sommelier at the end of the event.

Package Includes

  • Wine Host, with over 25 years experience in the wine industry
  • Champagne reception on arrival
  • Four red wines & four white wines for tasting
  • Personalised Wine Challenge sheets with company logo
  • Wine prizes for both winners and runners up
  • Event management throughout
  • Optional: Preferred wines tasted can be chosen for service with a dinner

Food and Wine Matching

Following a Champagne and canapé reception, the guests are divided into small groups of two or three. As the first wine is served, they’ll then taste canapés and assess the way the wine matches with the different food types. Altogether participants will look at five different wines and five different foods. The guests each have a food and wine matching chart which will help to guide them in assessing the worthiness of each match.

There are a surprisingly small number of principles which govern whether any particular wine and food pairing will work well or be an absolute disaster. During their two hour interactive tasting session participants can learn these rules as our Wine Host elucidates on why certain pairings work and others don’t. Our Wine Host will also hand out prizes on the spot for witty and amusing comments!

Package Includes

  • Experienced Wine & Food Host
  • Champagne & canapé reception
  • Wine and food tailored to your evenings requirements
  • Personalised Wine Challenge sheets
  • Wine prizes for both winners and runners up
