If you are in search of a unique meeting spot for your business to share ideas in a more creative and enjoyable environment, Tenuta Torciano is pleased to offer services that will cater to the needs of virtually any business or conference appointment that incorporates the Tuscan experience and energizes a typical professional environment. We provide an atmosphere of class and originality to our wine tastings, and companies who wish to conduct team-building exercises to strengthen relationships between internal customers, external clients, suppliers and more. Centered around the knowledge of wine, the game will be carefully constructed and lead by Pierliuigi Giachi and his staff in order to develop a team inspired by the construction of a real team effort, promoting skills like lasting bonds, improving communications, encouraging rejuvenation, and creating a fun and enjoyable experience that involves all participants.
In the company of Pierliuigi and his staff, wine school participants will sample excellent Tuscan wines, learning the endless combinations for wine and food, the senses, the etiquette of glass, and all of the technical visual, taste, and olfactory skills in an educational environment that harbors an informational and joyful experience mixed with a competitive team spirit while learning the art of winemaking. The program is designed to allow each participant to become a master taster. The group will learn the basics of wine and wine making, tasting ten wines of quality product specially selected from our cellar and supplied directly by Tenuta Torciano.
Enjoying fine wines and their many aromas, participants will learn how to identify different styles of wine from their unique flavoring, recognizing the secrets that allow them to achieve this end result. The participants will be educated on the various ingredients that generate flavors such as licorice, cinnamon, berries, wood and more. The event begins with a basic tasting wherein you and your team will develop a "wine game," and then you will compete against each other. Each team must identify the perfect mix to create a truly exceptional combination of flavors, aroma, taste and aftertaste. Once you have identified the wine, your team must then design a label, outline a sale and marketing strategy, and will present the finished project to the group of participants.
A single judge will determine the winning team based on taste and presentation of teamwork. The winning team will receive a personalized case of six bottles offered by the cellar and all participants will receive a free bottle offer from the cellar as well as a certificate of participation for the wine school.
The fun atmosphere along with the lesson describing wine making techniques should range anywhere from one and a half to three hours in total.
