Unique corporate and private wine events
Criterion Wine Tours has over 20 years experience of developing and delivering corporate wine tasting events and corporate wine tours. We’ll work directly with you or your company’s planners to help create a unique wine tasting event, and we have exceptional relationships with wine producers and hotels across the world. So whether you want a tasting in your office, a virtual wine tasting, or a team building weekend away in Europe (or further afield!), we’ve got the knowledge and expertise to make your event a memorable one.
Bring the team together with wine!
Escape from the office and experience an escorted trip to Champagne as you discuss next year’s financial plans. A tasting at a top Bordeaux chateau to reward top performers. A whirlwind tour in Rioja. Or closer to home, a day out to English vineyards!
Whether you’re looking to treat some of your top performers, or want your team to relax and enjoy each other’s company, we’ll make it happen. We’ve been organising corporate wine tours and away days for over 20 years and our relationships with private wineries and winemakers across the world means you can be assured of a seamless and memorable experience.
The Team Wine Challenge: a fun format where each team will guess the grape, country and price. Prizes to play for and the wine is guaranteed to keep the evening flowing!
This fun team building event is not just for wine connoisseurs! This is an unrivalled night of fun centred around a little (a lot) of wine. We will come to your office or another venue to run the event, getting everyone involved and interactive.
Each team experiences a wide range of wine tastings in “game mode”… pick the grape and country. Guess which is the most expensive or cheapest. Laugh as the wine snobs get most of them wrong! The game mode is what makes the event… think blind tastings.
The event is a tiny bit educational but mostly just about having some fun with colleagues and bonding over the finer things in life!
A wine tasting should be as individual as the wine itself. We tailor our wine tasting events to make sure you gain the most from your experience, be that solely wines, with dinner or even a cheese and wine pairing. So if you’re looking for an in-depth dive into New Zealand, South Africa, or maybe an offbeat region like Greece, we can cover almost anywhere.
Host and impress your customers with a premium cheese and wine tasting held by a WSET-certified sommelier.
To save you time we can seamlessly arrange gifts for your list of corporate clients, delivered to one or multiple addresses within the UK. Providing a highly convenient and exclusive way to gift.
Our range of award-winning wines from exclusive wineries make the perfect luxury gift for your clients or team. Get in touch today to discuss how we can help.
The absolute best way to learn about (and enjoy) wine is to taste it. Corporate wine events offer the ultimate nonthreatening environment to build team dynamics, attract new clients, strengthen relationships with colleagues and customers, or simply reward a successful team.
Our primary goal is to engage, connect and entertain our audience. We love wine, know a little too much about it and wholeheartedly believe in its power to responsibly lubricate social and corporate connections. Our private wine events offer something tasty to suit every palate – and budget.
All our wine events are hosted and led by Christos Ioannou who holds a WSET diploma, as well as bring a tutor at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust and an Approved Bordeaux Tutor of the Ecole du Vin in Bordeaux. Christos will enliven any event with a wine perspective, from a structured corporate wine tasting, hosted dinner, or informal team building event. An accomplished presenter with over 15 years experience as a judge at the International Wine Challenge Christos will educate and entertain any audience. His dynamic and informal approach encourages interaction, making wine enjoyable and unpretentious.
We’ve worked with many clients – both small and large. Here’s what they have to say about us.
Criterion Wine Tours is a fabulous company to work with. They have never let me down on any of our corporate events, whether that be a tutored wine tasting or a weekend tour to the Champagne Region. Would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!
