This programme is a great way to entertain clients & ideal for a pre-dinner activity. A glass of fizz is served upon arrival to get everybody’s taste buds warmed up & ready for the hedonistic experience to come. Interactive tasting games involve the whole crowd who learn new skills taught by some of the world’s leading bartenders, and above all, bond whilst having fun.
Upon arrival guests are shown to their seats and served a glass of champagne.
Once your guests are seated, one of our bartenders will introduce the team & run through an overview of the programme which prepares guests for the fun learning ahead. There will be an introduction & brief description of each of the major types of sparkling wine followed by a tutorial on how to taste fizz, using the reception drink as a guide.
Now things become serious! There will be a total of 5 ‘blind’ tasting challenge rounds featuring a Cava, Prosecco, Non alcoholic sparkling wine, Champagne & Vintage Champagne – each picked in a random order. After sampling each sparkling wine, it is up to the teams to try and guess the type of fizz, country of origin, price range & three tasting note descriptions from a variety of flashcards. Each round will be marked out of 6 for each correct answer.
The event usually takes 1.5 hours depending upon the group size. During this time an arrival glass of champagne is served, with on average another 2 glasses per person during the games. There are breaks to allow for the drinks service and mingling – the programme works ideally as pre dinner entertainment.
