Exclusive Experiences

Have you noticed that great conversations often happen over a glass of wine? Something about experiencing exceptional wines together elevates conversations, builds connections, and helps people relax. We’ve created a few unique ways to experience this:

The Highlight of Your Event

– Uncork Your Event’s Potential

Are you responsible for finding new ways to make an event engaging and memorable? Make a Leadership Uncorked Wine Tasting the highlight of your event!

Drawing from the many metaphors and correlations that wine offers, we will design a wine-focused, interactive object lesson that will have attendees talking long after your event ends. From large conferences to leadership retreats, we use wine analogies to underscore your message and build connections in a way they’ll never forget.

Team Workshops

– Uncork Your Team’s Potential

Do you need a unique approach to old problems? Use the magic of wine to bring your team together and find solutions and fresh insights in an immersive, wine-focused experience. We can customize tasting events (either as a stand-alone or as a series) to help solve your most frustrating challenges!

It is scientifically proven that wine can boost creativity and problem-solving skills, and it also lowers people’s defenses, allowing them to see issues from a different perspective. We capitalize on those benefits and use our coaching, change, culture and leadership expertise to help facilitate towards a desired outcome. Best of all, you and your team will have fun doing it!

Leadership Forums

– Uncork Your Leadership Potential

The more successful you become as a leader, the more isolating it can be. What if you could gather with like-minded peers to relax and engage in substantive conversations while enjoying spectacular wines?
Leadership Forums are designed to give you time to reflect, learn and go deeper faster through wine-focused experiences with fellow leaders. Our wine tastings are enhanced by curated, insight-driven discussions on a variety of topics such as culture, innovation, growth and leadership.
