Top 5 Reasons Why a Wine Tour Christmas Party is a Great Idea
We need no convincing here at Wine Compass that enjoying delicious food and amazing wine should be a year-round festivity. However, with the silly season fast approaching, we want to ensure you don’t make a silly decision with your end of year celebration.
Wine tours make a great Christmas party even better, and is ideal for groups of all sizes. So, if enjoying the best local produce and premium wines isn’t enough to convince you, here’s our list of the Top 5 Reasons a Wine Tour Christmas Party is a Great Idea
1. Great for mingling
Wine tours give your staff the opportunity to really get to know each other on a social level. We all get too busy during the work week to make time to get to know people outside our team. A wine tour encourages staff to reach out to others throughout the day in a fun and social environment, rather than sitting at the same table all night with the same people.
2. Enjoy beautiful landscapes & other scenery
Wine tours keep you on the move and keep things interesting. We spend our entire work day sitting down in front of a screen, but a wine tour gets you outdoors, enjoying beautiful landscapes and keeps your staff interested the whole day long. There’s always something exciting and fun happening.
3. It doesn’t have to be just wine, there are options for everyone
Not a big fan of wine? No worries! If members of your team aren’t that into wine, you can mix-up the day with different options, not just wineries. There’s so many places to choose from, including a visit to:
- Dairies for cheese,
- Chocolate makers,
- Cider houses,
- Distilleries (gin, rum)
- Team building activities
- Fruit picking
4. You still get a great lunch
The Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula are home to a great selection of some of the best restaurants in Victoria. From a casual sharing feast, to a more high-end Chefs Hat 3 course meal. No matter the selection, you’ll be treated to the freshest local and seasonal produce of the region. There’s guaranteed to be something for every group…and the amazing views are on the house!
5. Music on the bus ride home
The ride home is never a boring one. Crank-up the tunes and show-off your singing skills, you get to play DJ. Make it fun with an office playlist or pass the phone or iPod around to get some classics played. The journey really is part of the fun…just don’t let the boss have the phone for too long 😉
