Team Building: Why it’s so important to your business.

Creating a cohesive team is often one of the most challenging obstacles companies face. While a large variety of team building experiences are offered today, a memorable experience that fosters engagement, motivation and performance is often hard to find. Along with the fact that employees should feel rewarded for their hard work during a team building event, there are plenty of reasons why it is important to a business, including the bottom line.

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 12.56.28 PM

Team building fosters collaboration.

  • It can boost creativity and innovation.
  • Allows employees to understand the strengths, weaknesses and interests of coworkers.

It motivates.

  • Your employees’ hard work should be both recognized and rewarded.

It boosts performance.

  • Put simply, team building helps people work better together. Once they bond on an intimate level, you may see an increase in productivity.
  • Employees may be more driven.


So, how do you team build successfully?

1. It shouldn’t feel like a regular day at the office. It’s ideal to go offsite for team building, which helps people to get out of the daily routine and interact openly. Select a location that will be memorable and exciting for employees.

2. Schedule during working hours. Employees shouldn’t feel like they need to spend after hours’ time or a weekend attending a mandatory work event.

3. There needs to be an experience that brings people closer together. Activities can help employees collaborate and develop trust. At Regale, we offer a number of out-of-the-box options, like blind tasting, cork engineering and wine trivia (just to name a few).

4. Make it functional for everyone. Not every person on the team wants to do a relay race or scavenger hunt. Having options is a great way to accommodate everyone on the team. Regale provides a number of activities and packages to make sure all employees are engaged and comfortable.

5. Set expectations. The goal of the team building activity needs to be clear for employees. Communicate the intent of the event. Whether it is integrating different teams in the office, increasing communication among employees, or building relationships, results are more likely to be implemented if the team goes into the experience with a goal in mind.

6. Get feedback. Be sure to get a pulse for how receptive employees were to the team building activity (we like using SurveyMonkey, which allows employees to submit feedback anonymously). You should also thank everyone for their participation.

Here at Regale, we provide a team building experience that is one of the most involved and entertaining in the wine industry. All team members feel at ease with our event planning team handling every last detail, from time management to the setup and structure of activities.

With an expanding list of packages to choose from, employees can bond over grape stomping, blind tasting, or our sports package, among other extensive options. We take pride in finding catering partners that provide interactive culinary experiences and elite service.

Why Wines Taste Different from Year to Year

Have you ever wondered why you might love a particular Pinot Noir from 2013, but may not be as fond of the 2014? If so, you’re not alone.

The answer is complex, just like the winemaking industry. Having an understanding of these variations will give you a greater appreciation of just how much goes into making that 2013 vintage that you love so much.


Why does a wine differ in taste from year to year?
There are an endless number of variables that can have an effect on how a particular year’s yield will taste. However, there are two main factors that winemakers can confidently rely on being ever-changing.

  1. Weather and climate
  2. Winemaker’s growing, harvesting and aging process

How Weather & Climate Affect Wine
There are countless variables in nature that can have a major impact on the outcome of grapes. There are a few main factors that winemakers must pay close attention to.

  • Precipitation. The amount and timing of rainfall directly impacts a winemaker’s end product. If there is too much rainfall around harvest time, vines will absorb water, diluting the grape and causing an imbalance in flavor. Growers are looking for just the right amount of precipitation before harvest.
  • The land the grapes are grown in (soil). The soil that grapes are grown in can have an astounding impact on wine. For example, grapes that are planted in rich, fertile soil with lots of moisture will often produce light and fruity wine. However, the same grapes planted on a hill-side with broken up, dry soil cause the vines to work harder to get nutrients. This produces a more robust wine with higher tannins.
  • Temperature. The temperature that grapes are grown greatly impacts what kinds of varietals should be grown in a given region. Some grapes flourish in moderate temperatures, while others grow best with warm days and cooler nights. And some grapes grow best in extreme heat (for example, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel).

How Winemaking Process Affects Wine
To make great wine, it’s crucial to have quality grapes. But, how the grapes are harvested and processed also has a considerable impact on the end product. Among many factors, three of the most important that winemakers must consider include:

  • The date of harvest. The exact time that grapes are picked has a much higher impact on the overall taste of a wine than you might think. If grapes are harvested earlier, the wine they produce will have a lower alcohol content and higher acidity. Conversely, if grapes are picked later in the season, there will be more sugar present, which translates to a higher alcohol content and less acidity in the wine. The goal is to pick grapes when acidity and sweetness levels are balanced.
  • Aging process. Wine is aged in either oak or steel. The result? Oak-aged wine is more traditional and produces natural aromas like nutmeg, vanilla, and cinnamon. Steel barrels produce a zestier, more refreshing wine, like Pinot Gris. Wine aged in steel barrels has become more common in recent years due to its value proposition (reuse of barrels, easier cleaning, more control over oxygen exposure).
  • When it was bottled and how it was stored. What might sound like a very simple step in the winemaking process is another critical phase that demands a winemaker’s planning and expertise. Exposure to oxygen can make or break a wine during this important step. Winemakers must walk a fine line between aging (good) and oxidizing (bad) wine. This means wine must be stored at the right temperature in properly sealed bottles. Other factors include keeping the wine in a dark, consistently cool space, minimizing movement and knowledge of what wines usually improve with age.


These, among many other factors, all contribute to why that 2013 Pinot Noir was so outstanding!






5 Tips to Learning More About Wine

Whether you’re new to loving wine, or someone who has been tasting for years, there’s always more you can learn. However, the seemingly endless pages of fine wine at nice restaurants, hundreds of ways to describe wine, and varietals changing from year to year, can make wine education intimidating.

So, where do you begin?

In order to handle the wine list with confidence, discover what wine qualities you like, or simply expand your taste, we have a few ideas for you.

1. Get a wine-centric group of people to form a tasting group.

Glass in Hand 2Find a group of individuals who have the same interest in wine and plan to get together once or twice a month to taste and discuss preferences. Try to mix up the wines you are tasting to expose your palette to as many wine varietals as possible.

If you live near vineyards, have everyone meet at a winery’s tasting room (visit us at Regale!). The pourers will be able to enhance your depth of knowledge and bring new perspectives to your tasting group. They’ll be able to tell you more about each wine you taste, including where it was grown, how it was barreled, and how long it was aged, among other factors.

2. Find a favorite local wine bar. Get to know the staff. Become a regular.

Stop by the wine bar once or twice a week for a glass of wine. Become acquainted with their menu by trying different wines each time you visit. This will help you to identify characteristics that you like and dislike in wine.

3. Host a dinner party with a themed wine selection.

Pick a wine that you would like to know more about (for example, Pinot Noir). Have everyone bring a bottle of Pinot Noir so you can taste and discuss multiple bottles.


Take it a step further.
To take your themed dinner party to another level, have everyone bring a Pinot Noir from a different region. This will allow you to draw comparisons between wines produced in different types of land and soils (like the Willamette Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains). Take detailed notes to assess your preferences and compare with your guests.

Regale-99_preview4. Taste frequently.

(Our favorite tip!) Take advantage of the resources you have around you. Find a good local wine shop and get to know the people who work there. Each time you buy wine, ask for one bottle that is full bodied and one that is light bodied.

5. Follow wine experts.

Pay attention to what the experts are doing. This will encourage you to branch out from wines you typically drink and allow you to find new wines you never knew you’d like.
To increase your knowledge of wine, your best bet is to experience as much as possible. Each of these tips will help you to do so, but keep in mind that the very best way you can learn is to taste.

In addition to making these tips part of your wine tasting routine, be sure to have a few good resources to reference. This will keep you on top of wine trends and ongoing education.

Some resources we like:

  • – A guide to wineries in California with information about terrain, history and more.
  • – A leading wine resource, with information on just about anything you ever wanted to know about wine.

Meet Rosie & Sangiovese

Our expert vintners are dedicated to the fine art of making wine. But they wouldn’t be able to fully devote themselves to their craft if they didn’t have some behind-the-scenes help from two of our most important employees: Rosie and Sangiovese!

Rosie 2.1

Rosie and Sangiovese (who prefers the less formal Sangio) help keep things at Regale running smoothly. Their most important job is patrolling our vineyard and chasing away unwanted pests.

Of course, vermin population control isn’t their only duty. Rosie and Sangio also have many important administration tasks, including napping on keyboards, napping in the middle of the office floor, napping on laps, and some occasional light filing.


Rosie, the more outgoing of the pair, is a pretty little thing. Her white and grey coat is accented with soft, sunset-orange markings. She’s also quite the charmer. You can often find her meowing for pats and attention. In her spare time, Rosie loves “collecting” bugs and lizards (which she wants to share, much to our dismay).

While Sangio is more shy and reserved, he’s still a very handsome boy with a coat of grey and tabby markings. He also has quite the appetite and can sometimes be coaxed over with the promise of food. On his braver days, Sangio will visit us in the office to make sure everyone is doing their work and staying on task.  Sangio 1.jpg

The Santa Cruz Mountains: An Ideal Location for Growing Grapes.

At Regale Winery and Vineyards, we’ve built our core winemaking values on honoring the traditions of those before us: To always question and innovate. We push ourselves to transcend the everyday and create wines that are extraordinary.

When you visit our winery and take that first sip, you experience not only the fruits of the labor of our master winemakers, but also the labor and experience of our vintner forefathers, who first settled in the Santa Cruz Mountains in the late 1700s.Regale Pouring Wine

The history of winemaking in the Santa Cruz region spans over 300 years. It began when the priests at the Santa Cruz Mission planted grapes that were “rough and hardy – and made terrible wine.”[1]

It wasn’t until the 1850s that the Santa Cruz Mountains region revealed its true potential — some of the most influential pioneers in California’s winemaking history sought to seed the land with grapes of a much higher quality than their unrefined ancestors.[2] Early vintners included John Burns, John and George Jarvis, Charles Lefranc, Paul Masson, and John Stewart,  men who all made substantial, lasting contributions to the growth and success of the region’s commercial wine industry.[3]

But of all the places to build a winery, why would winemakers choose the Santa Cruz Mountains? Minimal rain, warm weather that encourages and accelerates ripening, and soil that is “fertile, alluvial and loamy in nature” are the key elements responsible for the success of the region’s wineries.[4]

Jon Bonné, former wine editor and chief wine critic at the San Francisco Chronicle, poetically describes the region’s influencing factors thusly:

The mountains are sliced in half by the San Andreas Fault. The North American Plate’s sandstone and Pacific Plate’s uplifted ocean floors are constantly grinding. The result? An utter jumble of shallow, rocky soils, not unlike portions of the Sonoma Coast.

Two converging climates are also at work — cool moderating influences of the ocean to the west, and a similar, if warmer, influence from San Francisco Bay to the east. Slightly warmer sites can ripen a subtle style of Cabernet, while delicate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay thrive nearby.[5]

Wine Bottles

Santa Cruz wineries benefit from these ideal growing conditions. Winemakers aren’t at the mercy of unpredictable weather or stingy earth. This allows wineries to become “a perfect laboratory for winemaking not held hostage to fashion.” Santa Cruz’s vintners are free to stretch their wings and create wine that is intriguing and able to stand on its own merit, avoiding what Bonné describes as the wine industry’s “steroidal tendencies of the past 20 years.”[6]

The verdant, yielding land of the region, combined with indulgent weather, allows us to handcraft batches of remarkable wines every year. The grapes from our estate-grown Pinot Noir vineyard and other exceptional local vineyards give birth to wines that stand apart from the rest with finesse, provocative personality, and balanced acidity.

January Vines

We produce some of the finest Californian wine available, yet many wine connoisseurs and experts feel Santa Cruz wineries are overlooked compared to Napa and Sonoma.[7] This is the perfect opportunity for wine lovers to delight their palates with something new. Make the relaxing, scenic drive to Regale Winery and experience the charm of Old World wine country, tucked away in the mountains of Santa Cruz.
