Presentation Formats

The Magnum

Take your event to the next level with a personalized 1.5 hour+ interactive wine course. Designed to suit a topic of your choice, we’ll customize a class to fit with your event and style. Perfect for keynote speeches, wine tasting events and educational seminars.

The Standard

Liven up your traditional party with a 20-30 minute wine presentation on wine varieties, regions or tasting tips and tricks.  Perfect for informal events such as bridal showers, themed dinners, or company holiday parties.
