Companies around the world, are looking at many creative ways to keep their teams incentivised and cohesively working together, while physically separated by lockdown due to the current Coronavirus pandemic.
GreatVine were delighted to have been asked to facilitate and supply the wines for a Virtual wine tasting event last night for the Executive team at Financial Services Company FinTrU, with team members located between Belfast and London. FinTrU is a multi-award winning Financial Services company that is committed to giving local talent the opportunity to work on the global stage with the largest International Investment Banks.
GreatVine delivered a tasting case of 2 white wines, 3 red wines and an exquisite Italian Anselmi “I Capitelli” Passito (Canadian Ice Wine or Sauterne style) dessert wine, which our guests were asked to taste paired with blue cheese. This wine features in a book called “1001 Wines: You Must Try Before You Die” by Neill Beckett. FinTrU Founder & CEO Darragh McCarthy, also supplied an extra bottle of each wine for the team to enjoy at their leisure.
Everyone really enjoyed the wine tasting and contributed their own thoughts and questions about the wines. We all took a break from the tasting at 8 p.m. so that everyone could go outside their home to applaud the NHS, then reconvened for the final wine.
With our beautiful artisan wines and lower than organic level sulphites, there should be no sore heads this morning. The participants can also head onto www.wineswithstories.com to select more of our wines to buy for home delivery during lockdown.
Thanks to all the team at FinTrU for the most fantastic, engaging evening we’ve ever had without even having to leave home 🙂
