Being a new company, I so often get asked the questions: “what exactly is a wine tasting experience” and “how are they different than any other wine tasting?”
These are my favourite questions, as they give me an opportunity to share the concept behind Vine & Vintage in its rawest and truest form as well as expose the passionate story that sparked the beginning of the company.
Let’s get real. If you haven’t spent years studying wine, come from a background where wine is consumed like water, or given a second thought to the difference between an Australian Shiraz vs. a French Syrah, chances are, you don’t roll with the Sommelier scene in Toronto and attend highly acclaimed tastings.
In fact, you enjoy drinking wine in a more recreational setting and might be interested to learn a little more, but intimidation or lack of knowledge on where to look for a happy medium is in your way.
That is where Vine & Vintage comes in. There are 5 important details I will fill you in on.
1. What We Do:
Every experience is different to suit the needs and wants of our clients and their guests.
Step 1: For any occasion, we work with our clients to create a theme, menu, special activities and an entire 2-hour event for a group to connect, celebrate or socialize.
Step 2: We come to your home, party room or office space with ALL the supplies and set up the event
Step 3: We run a 2-hour interactive event that include our activities, food pairing, winery stories, pictures, and lots of laughter
Step 4: We pack up and take everything with us
Step 5: We send you the wine list and pictures from the event
Step 6: You re-book us again and again!
2. Why We Do What We Do:
What are you doing when you are drinking wine and eating food anyway?
Congratulating the bride-to-be at her bachelorette or shower
Celebrating a birthday or anniversary
Connecting and socializing with friends and family
As soon as I know a friend’s birthday is coming up or I hear the news of someone celebrating, my first instinct is to google “new ways to celebrate” or “unique party ideas”
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Well, we have created an easy solution to suit all of those needs! A new way to celebrate, a new way to socialize, a new way to connect, and a new way to learn.
3. We Are Different:
Where does the learning come in you ask? The whole way through a wine tasting event! Our subtle approach of sharing our knowledge isn’t shoved in your face, rather it’s used to help create your own learning, without you even realizing it. Our sensory activities and interactive games add to the experience to keep everyone engaged and on their toes!
We don’t try to sell the products we pour or push them in your face, but we will use products that are affordable and accessible to you in case you like them, and trust me, you will!
Check out our Wine Murder Mystery theme; our newest and growingly popular experience. These guest detectives had a blast!
4. The BEST Part:
We do ALL the prep work to provide an original and unforgettable event! Your only focus? Sit back and enjoy the experience with those around you, while we take care of the rest.
5. Why it Works:
Have you been listening to what I’ve been saying? The proof is in the pudding!
Each experience is customized to suit the client and their guests
Every event is created to relate to the theme of the occasion
Everything is brought to you, in the comfort of your own home
Accommodations to restrictions/allergies are made
Any celebration, every occasion
Entertaining and educational
A good time guaranteed!
Where in Toronto can you experience all of the above? Have I made a good point?
Does that answer your questions? Do you see the big picture now? I hope it’s full of wine, food, fun and a list of possibilities of what you could be doing for your next celebration or get-together.
