The combination of Sophie’s event management experience and wine knowledge allows her to capitalise on the huge demand for corporate entertainment.

“Many companies find that another off-roading weekend or slap-up meal no longer encourages the bonding with clients or colleagues that they require. On the other hand, everyone has an opinion about wine and we provide a setting in which customers and their clients can build personal relationships in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.”
