“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
Ernest Hemingway (Novelist, 1899-1961)

Honored with the task of organizing a corporate event? With the rush of excitement, the apprehensions, too, creep in, as you have a stringent deadline to meet for arranging the venue, decorations, and theme - not to forget the delicious food paired with a fine glass of wine to make that lasting impression on your guests.
That said, selecting corporate wine gifts can be a daunting task, as words like “elegant” or “suave” leap to mind as highly desirable qualities. Nonetheless, you don’t need to be a sommelier to identify how the wine should taste. Your choice of wines should strike the perfect balance between exclusivity, quality, and prices that you can afford. Thus, whether you seek to influence prospects or delight your existing clientele, you must serve the finest wines at your event.
Read on to find out how you can cull the pick of the lot.
“Organic”, “sustainable”, “vegan,” and “biodynamic” are the latest buzzwords among wine connoisseurs. So, before you go shopping for corporate wine boxes, it’s important to learn the fundamentals of the wines that you seek to serve
Usually, all wines are organic and vegan in character. “Biodynamic” relates to the process of handling the grapes and involves several variables like the moon and climatic changes. So, you can serve suitable wines to guests who you know are practicing a specific diet plan due to their lifestyle choices.
Sustainable refers to the equitable farming practices and water used for cultivating the fruit. Vineyards generally follow this practice, which can get you in the good books of your prospects or clients who are environmentally conscious.
If your guests prefer a specific brand, opt for breezy and light white wine like Pinot Noir. However, if they prefer a refined taste, your corporate wine gift baskets should contain heavier white wines like Chardonnay.
Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are versatile wines that will delight your guests and easily fit in your budget. Hence, it would help if you considered these hotshots in your Corporate Wine list.
Sauvignon Blanc is neutral and enjoyable on the palate, while Pinot Noir offers lighter tannins with a fruity hint that pairs well with any food. If you want to match a perfect wine of glass for each dish on your menu, opt for Pinot Noir.
With an exceptional combination of plums, black pepper, and smoke, Côtes du Rhône is a chic wine that offers excellent value for money, so your guests can thoroughly enjoy it with great conversation.
For making that perfect impression on your guests, consider adding wines from exclusive global locations like Spain, Uruguay, or Greece. Pair wines from southern Italy with your dish to offer a WOW experience to your guests. When you offer an international Corporate Wine to your guests, it boasts of your social and professional acumen.
Have you researched your guest list for vegan food and wine preferences? If you intend to show your genuineness to your guests, it’s best to pair wines that enhance the flavor of vegan food. Now, this may sound like a tough nut to crack, but you will enjoy shopping at niche vineyards for that perfect accompaniment.
Planning to include grain-based vegan dishes on the menu? Don’t forget the Bordeaux! This refined and soft white sauvignon-black-based wine will complement the food.
Côtes du Rhône is a perfect addition to rich vegan cuisine due to its lighter undertone.
We often pair an overly fruity wine with desserts. However, seasoned sommeliers suggest otherwise; they recommend Madeira from Portugal. It boasts of a distinct nutty flavor that’s equipoised with pecan pine and a tinge of salt, unlike the sweet port wines available. It pairs well with sweet and piquant desserts, or it can be offered as a solo, just like “liquid dessert.”
With your carefully selected array of superb wines, you can easily delight the palate of your diverse guest list in your corporate event. Heritage wines are associated with matured and refined taste, while chic wines with exotic tinges enable you to display a creative and lively aspect of your business or brand.
As an event organizer, you are responsible for deciding on an exotic Corporate Branded Wine collection that appeals to your guest list and suits your pocket. With this article, you can quickly learn and confidently win over your prospects and clients.
