Let us create your ideal corporate event
They say a change is as good as a rest – and what could be more of a change than embarking on a VIP wine tour, exploring and enjoying some of the finest wine estates in the world?
Sometimes you need a change of scenery; a chance to spread your wings outside the office and experience something new. With our tailored corporate events, that’s just what we can offer.
10 years working with businesses – large and small
Over the past decade or so, we’ve worked with a vast range of clients, from corporate behemoths such as HSBC, John Lewis and Waitrose, to a whole host of smaller, more intimate businesses. Whatever the shape or size of your company, we will work tirelessly to find just the right wine experience for you.
In our time, we’ve done everything from hosting leisurely lunches in 17th century wine cellars to arranging the hire of French private islands – all to satisfy the need for a change of scene to our clients’ businesses.
Maybe you’re looking to create some extra team spirit with a spot of white water rafting, followed by a stay in a luxury château set amongst miles of local vineyards. Perhaps you’re after a golfing weekend in the Médoc, interspersed with visits to the region’s legendary wineries. Or you may even be looking to refine your wine knowledge, with meticulously-crafted tastings and dinners that are ideal for the more experienced connoisseur. Whatever you choose is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience.
Whether you’re entertaining clients, offering rewards and incentives to your staff or arranging your AGM, we can take care of it from start to finish – and offer plenty of ideas and insights along the way.
We at SmoothRed have been established experts at tailoring wine experiences and incentives for over a decade. Our knowledge of the wine-making regions of Europe is matched only by our dedication in ensuring that the most exclusive luxuries of those regions are yours to enjoy.
The SmoothRed team is made up of highly committed and knowledgeable multilingual travel specialists, who are contactable from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week, and can turn around fresh itineraries in a matter of hours. From the moment you pick up the phone to the day you, your employees or your clients arrive safely home, we will be working to go above and beyond in ensuring that your incentive, experience or meeting runs as smoothly as it possibly can.
Sometimes it’s nice to let your employees know they’re doing a great job, and sometimes you might want to show them that rather than just telling them. That’s where we come in. Our trips are a one-of-a-kind opportunity to reward the people who deserve it most and recognise them for their hard work. A guaranteed morale-raiser, and don’t forget that we cater to groups of any size, too.
A tight-knit team is a strong team, and trust us, there’s no better way to bond than over a glass of wine. A trip away is one of those rarest of things – a team-building exercise that your employees will genuinely love – and our wine tours combine all the advantages of a classic team-building exercise with the enjoyment of a trip to one of Europe’s finest destinations.
Training and Development
Most of the venues we work with have their own training and conference rooms, so no matter what skills you’re looking to inhibit in your workforce, you’ll be able to do it in an entirely enjoyable manner. We can also arrange for educational wine courses, as well as international guest speakers.
AGMs and Christmas Parties
Want to get out of that stuffy conference centre for your AGM? Looking for somewhere other than your office for the Christmas party? Heading to one of Europe’s foremost wine destinations will put an unbeatable twist on your annual event, and will doubtless be the talking point of the year.
Corporate Events and Product Launches
If you’re looking to hold a particular event or launch a new product or project, why not take over a lavish château in Bordeaux, a Champagne cellar in Reims or Port Lodge in Portugal with your brand? Just let us know what you need and we’ll sort out the rest.
