For those who are entertaining clients or organising corporate gatherings, wine related events are usually a popular choice. There does seem to be something about wine that makes sure everyone leaves the event with a good impression.

With that in mind, we’re excited to announce a new addition to our experiences – Blend your own Bordeaux. Rather than a traditional wine-tasting event, this experience allows participants to step into the shoes of a wine maker. You will actually be taken into a wine lab to get a behind-the-scenes look at how wine is made, and in particular, the classic Bordeaux red.

When you arrive you will get to know the wine maker, who will tell you about the different grapes that are permitted in the Bordeaux region and how they are blended to create beautiful red wines. Then, out comes the chemistry lab equipment, participants get into teams, roll up their sleeves and start blending. This is serious business. Teams will have to compete for the honour of creating the finest blend.

Get involved in the wine lab with pipettes and conical flasks! Do you remember them from chemistry class?
