Wine Olympics

About Wine Olympics

Rather than running, jumping and swimming your way to victory, teams will tackle a very different series of challenges.

Grape stomping, wine spitting, cork popping and an array of winery related activities make for a competitive, informative and hilarious event. If you are conferencing in a wine region this event is a fun and enjoyable way to link your event to the region.

Key Facts

The Wine Olympics team building event will see your delegates divided into teams of approximately 7 people per team.

Teams compete head to head in a series of fun, novelty wine themed activity challenges.

This event requires a large, flat grassed location such as an oval, park, reserve, beach or conference venue with suitable outdoor space.

For any activity held on council owned land a permit is required. We will organise this on your behalf and add the permit cost to your booking.

The Wine Olympics is great when booked in conjunction with our very popular Grape to Glass activity – our ‘design your own wine’ challenge where delegates blend and design a label for your very own company wine that will be bottled and delivered to you post event.

Example Challenges

Grape Stomping

Teams race against each other to stomp enough grapes to fill a wine bottle.

Waiter Relay

Teams race against each other whilst carrying a tray of wine glasses.

Grape Catapults

Teams fire bunches of grapes via replicated catapults towards a landing zone where strategically positioned team members await ready to catch.

Cork Toss

Each team receives a box of corks which they must throw into a barrel with the aim of outscoring opponents.

Wine Spitting

Delegates are taught the art of spitting wine and compete against the other teams to see how much they can land in their spittoon.

Stole it from the Grape Vine

Once teams have built their own grape vine the competition begins! Players steal bunches of grapes from the other teams’ grape vines and attach to their own. The team with the most bunches of grapes at the end wins!

Frequently Asked Questions

We will liaise with you in the lead-up to the event & tailor the challenges to suit the demographics & abilities of your group. We want your delegates to feel safe whenever participating in one of our events and we’ll never ask anyone to do something they don’t feel comfortable doing.

The Wine Olympics requires a large, flat, preferably grassed area such as an oval, park, reserve or your conference venue/winery. If your conference venue does not have such a space available, we will need to attain a permit for council owned land. We will do all the liaising with the council on your behalf, however any permit fees are an additional cost.

For most groups we would suggest teams of approximately 5-7 people. We can either divide your group into teams randomly on the day or we’re happy for you to predetermine the teams in advance. We will also come along with coloured bandanas for each of your teams to wear.

If it’s only drizzling and you would still like to proceed outdoors, we will come along with emergency ponchos for your group to use. Should proceeding outdoors not be feasible, we will supply a wet weather back up event; we simply need an indoor location to host this in. Usually the indoor location is your conference room or your office.

For events onsite at conference venues or resorts the venue can supply water. If your event is at your office or in a public space chat to us about providing water.
