igroup’s Virtual Wine Tasting Fun

Virtual wine tasting

The Coronavirus has ushered in new working from home perks for igroup employees.

We embraced the use of technology and an interactive way of getting together to taste and learn more about wine.

Several bottles of wine were delivered to each employee and as always, we were keen to keep things relaxed and ‘unstuffy’ and ensure lockdown fun for all levels of wine enthusiast!

MD Steve Rastall got into the role of Pierre, his alter ego and he provided much entertainment with perhaps a little bit of knowledge about the different wines on offer. Employees had fun trying to identify the hidden flavours in the wine, which seemed to get easier after sampling one or two.

More than just a wine tasting it enabled us to stay social and stay connected with the bonus of learning about wine.

Even the less enthusiastic wine drinkers were converted by the end of the evening, with one of the bottles being added to the weekly shopping list of a non-wine drinker!

Financial assistant Michelle Leese thought the evening was a real success. “It was a great way to socially connect whilst enjoying some great wine.”
