Everything that I do is about educating, whether it’s teaching or consulting. We look at the entire world of wine – the business end, the viniculture; viticulture and how everything works – not only how it tastes or smells.

Wine Blending Team Building Class

Wine Blending Team Building Class

A Thru the Vines Team Building Series Workshop

Making a good to great wine all comes down to balance and taste. This is an educational and fun team building excercise to help you understand the nature of blending and running a winery.  Participants will work in teams to create a Bordeaux (Meritage) Style Blend. They will then create a label and marketing campaign for their wine. The teams ‘winery’ will be judged by a selected number of ‘tasters’ or industry professionals. 


  • Learn the history of blending and why winemakers do it
  • Become a winemaker for a couple of hours and try your hand at blending
  • Create your own ‘brand’ and label for your winery with your team
  • Create a marketing plan for your new wine with your team
  • Compete with others teams while the wines are  judged blindly which team made the best wine!
