The Summer of Pizza Paella, and of course, Wine. Need we say more?

If you asked for a list of our favorite things, we’re pretty sure we’d include these three every time. Pizza, Paella and Wine—all of which we invite you to join us for this summer at Regale.

Between now and late September, we’ve planned a lineup of exciting events that you don’t want to miss. If you’re looking to enjoy summer like the Italians, spend a Sunday afternoon on the grounds enjoying wine during our Wood-Fired Pizza series. Perhaps a Spanish staycation is more your style? We have you covered with the return of our popular Paella Feast. And last, but certainly not least, if you’re new to wine, or looking to expand your palette and knowledge, sign up for a class in our new Wine Education Series!

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).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 12.56.55 PM 

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.

5 Reasons to Have Your Wedding at Regale winery and Vineyards

1. The Foliage
It’s true that the most beautiful thing at a wedding is always the bride, but Regale’s multicolored array of flowers, towering trees, and greenery will only serve to complement and enhance her beauty. Your wedding photos will have the look of an Italian destination wedding without the cost. An added bonus: It’s virtually impossible to take a bad wedding photo when you’re surrounded by a gorgeous background.

2. The Bride’s Dressing Suite

The second-story room in our villa is the perfect spot for a bride and her attendants to get ready. It’s quiet, private, and has its own bathrooms and bar. With a working fireplace and an Italian fresco mural, it’s a lovely backdrop for any pre-wedding photos of the blushing bride and her ensemble, a first look reveal, or a touching mother-daughter moment.


3. The Romance
The Italians are known for their passion, and we’ve successfully captured that passion with our Tuscan-themed grounds. You’ll be swept away by our intimate garden vignettes, rich greenery and flowers, sparkling fountains, and open-air dining areas. These features are the perfect recipe for a romantic, memorable wedding that your guests will still be talking about years later.
4. The Weather
The weather in the Santa Cruz Mountains region is reliable and mild. Your guests will be able to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful surroundings during your ceremony without the threat of a sudden downpour.

 

5. Our Flexibility 
We understand there’s a lot of pressure to get everything just right for your wedding day. That’s why we only work with premier local caterers and DJs. And for the brides who are feeling overwhelmed, we can provide you with a list of trusted, reliable photographers, florists, bakers, and other vendors. No matter who you choose to work with, you can rest assured your wedding will be in good hands.

Taking Team Building to the Next Level

We’ve all been to the corporate event with the scavenger hunt or the escape room. And if we’re being honest, it’s not the most exciting day on the job. At Regale Winery, team building activities are planned with a goal of creating a memorable and fun experience for employees; one that is unlike the corporate “puzzles” or “challenges” of years past. The beautiful, Tuscan-inspired vineyard is the perfect location for participants to enjoy fine wine and craft food with a genuine, rewarding bonding experience. The range of activities offers something unique for everyone, no matter the group dynamic.

From wine blending to grape stomping, you can pick and choose from a number of options to create the ultimate, customized corporate experience at Regale. In addition to the variety of activities, there are multiple event spaces to choose from on Regale’s stunning grounds, one of which is sure to fit your needs.


What kind of team building experience are you looking for?


If you’re looking for a relationship-building experience, you should try:

2017_regale_aroma_teamBlind Tasting: The good news is, there’s no need to be a wine expert in this challenge. Regale will test the group’s knowledge of different varietals under the guidance of one of our wine specialists. Individuals or teams work to identify wine varieties based on three basic senses: taste, sight and smell. Each member of the winning team receives two passes to a member-area tasting.

 

Grape Stomping Platform

Grape Stomping: Take a step back in time and experience the art of grape stomping. Find out which team can collect the most grapes and stomp out the most grape juice. Teammates will work through clues and challenges to gather grapes for their barrel. Grapes can also be won at the wine bottle ring toss, a hole-in-one putting competition and by figuring out answers to the wine trivia game. Continuous wine service is sure to break the ice during this challenge!

*Available late April through September.


If your team is very competitive, you should try:

engineeringCork Engineering: We all live in a digital world, but occasionally it’s worth getting back to the basics. In cork engineering, each team is given a supply of corks and rubber bands and is challenged to build the tallest cork tower.

Sports Package: With a wide variety of game options, including an in-house bocce ball court, badminton, Ping-Pong, cornhole, horseshoe and Giant Jenga, your group is going to get their game on. Break into teams for a healthy dose of competition amongst each other.

2017_regale_sports_pong

 Wine Trivia: New to wine? Not a problem. Learn the fundamentals of wine and the outstanding wine regions of California through Wine Trivia. Individuals will break into teams to get a basic understanding of wine terminology, where wine comes from and how to best taste them. Participants will then need to work together to come up with the best answers for each question. A Regale wine expert will reveal answers and award a winning team.


If you’re looking for an employee appreciation experience, you might consider:

Wine Blending: Become a winemaker for a day! Teams work together to develop a winning Bordeaux-style blend from traditional varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Beakers and graduated cylinders are used to create original concoctions, tasting blends as they go.

2017_regale_profile_stationSignature Black Glass Tasting Experience: If you couldn’t see the wine you were tasting, do you think you could tell if it were red or white? Put your senses to the test by sampling wine from a line of black glasses for varietal secrecy. A Regale wine expert will guide individuals through the experience to help describe and analyze flavors and aromas. Using your sense of smell and taste, you’ll try to identify what varietal you’re enjoying.

How-to: Blind Wine Tasting

Here at Regale, we love parties – Fresco Croppedespecially one with a good icebreaker, and, even better, something involving wine!  Might we suggest incorporating a little blind wine tasting to your family gathering, game night, company team building, or throwing a whole party aimed at getting your guests interacting with a fun blind tasting.  It will get people thinking, comparing notes, and most importantly… talking! If you are looking for a gorgeous locale as a bonus, come visit us for a private event at Regale and have a blind tasting hosted by one of our wine specialists.  It make your party an event to remember and is great to add to an offsite as a team building activity!

A How-To for a Blind Tasting Party:

The Setup

  1. Gather three-five bottles of wine (definitely throw a Regale bottling in there!) – ideally single varietal bottles from different regions and vintages. Alternatively guests can each bring a favorite mystery bottle to share.
  2. Cover and number your bottles – for our team building events at Regale we have snazzy burlap blind tasting bags printed with numbers, but you can use brown paper bags, decanters, or even wrap your bottles in aluminum foil! Remember- a bottle’s shape can be a cue towards the varietal, so keep this in mind when selecting how to disguise the bottle if your guests are wine savvy.
    IMG_1252    Blind Tasting
  3. Provide tasting cards so your guests can take notes and eventually submit their guesses.  Decide if you want to provide a key of the different offerings or leave them completely in the dark.Lepori_0383

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As guests are tasting, you can sound like an expert by reminding them of…

The Three Steps to Blind Tasting:

  1. Consider the appearance for maturity and other cues
  2. Consider the aroma for varietal cues
  3. Consider the mouth for taste, body, finish, overall quality

Step 1: Appearance – Color and Opacity

  • What color is the wine? Whites gain color as they age, reds are most vibrant when young and fade or take on a more brick color with an orange or brown hue.
  • How opaque is the wine? Can you read text through the wine or is it so opaque that light barely comes through it?

Step 2: Aroma – Smell and Physical Indicators

  • 1st Sniff – Does it remind you of varietals you have tasted in the past?
  • Shirt sniffs vs. long draws; swirling for aeration
  • Think about the descriptors:
    • F – Fruit
    • E – Earth
    • W – Wood
  • Physical reaction – Acidity (salivation), tannin (bitterness), alcohol (heat)

Step 3: Mouth – Taste, Texture, and Finish

  • Body – Light-medium, medium-full, full:
    • Pinot Noir                            Light to Medium
    • Sangiovese                           Light to Medium
    • Cabernet Franc                   Medium
    • Barbera                                 Medium
    • Zinfandel                              Medium
    • Merlot                                   Medium to Full
    • Malbec                                  Medium to Full
    • Syrah                                     Medium to Full
    • Petite Sirah                          Full
    • Cabernet Sauvignon          Full
  • Is the wine balanced?
  • Dry, off-dry, or sweet?
  • Alcohol – Prominent (riper/warmer region) or balanced (cooler climate region)
  • Tannins, if any- how heavy?
  • Length – Short, medium, or long (acidity and complexity)

Conclusion

  • What varietal could it be? Use your past tasting experiences and memory.
  •  Are there any varietals you can rule out?
  • The important part is the journey to reach a conclusion – don’t worry too much about the final guess!

The more you practice, the better you get – so cheers to that!

Successful Saber
