Key Facts

The Grape to Glass team building event will see your delegates divided into teams of approximately 7 – 10 people.

We can host the Grape to Glass at almost any indoor venue as long as the venue is happy for us to be bringing in external wine for the activity.

Grape to Glass is most popular in the Hunter Valley wine region and is a great way to taste some award winning local wine.

If you are conferencing in the Hunter Valley we can arrange for this experience to take place in your conference venue or at a winery. We will arrange transfers to and from your conference venue to the winery as required.

If your event is outside the Hunter Valley we will bring the winemaker to you – we just need a room set cabaret style and about 30 minutes in the room to set up all the equipment required for your team to create their own blend of wine.

Grape To Glass Challenge

Each team will create their own wine which will be judged on the following criteria:

The Blend

Teams will have 3 different varietals to blend together to create a wine that is better than the sum of its parts.

The Label

Teams have label design kits and must present a label to represent their wine with a visually enticing design.

The Sales Pitch

Finally teams stand and deliver an entertaining sales pitch to the audience selling their wine above all others.

The team with the highest score overall will see their wine come to life as the winemaker will return to the winery and prepare 1 bottle of the winning teams wine for each participant to take home.
