The Event

Markel International were looking for a virtual team building option as a get together with a valued client to encourage networking and strengthen their relationship. They wanted something high end and memorable to break up the fatigue of everyday video calls. A virtual cheese and wine tasting was the perfect fit for the group, being a fun and sociable activity that easily translated into the virtual world. The Tour de France luxury tasting was hosted by our favourite wine expert, who takes a unique approach to wine tasting, ensuring his sessions are educational, engaging and boozy, with no wine snobbery in sight. To make the experience extra special, the tasting included a delivery of four full size bottles of wine and a luxury cheese hamper with perfectly paired French cheeses. On the night guests were guided through the tasting, starting with some fizz from the Alsace region of France and then making their way around the famous wine making regions with their guide and tasting maps.


“Just wanted to say thankyou for the cheese and wine tasting, we have had some excellent feedback from our clients. The host was excellent and gave them more time, keeping the night fun and light hearted but with some really interesting discussions. Everyone was so impressed with the delivery and commented that there was sooo much wine and cheese and it was all absolutely delicious with four really great wines.”
