It is estimated that there are more than 27,000 wineries in France, over 2,500 vineyards in Australia and Spain boasts more than 15% of the World’s vineyards.
But wine production is a global enterprise. For example, Sweden has a growing wine industry, while Canada is famous for its ice wine. Even the UK is now recognised as a premium wine-producing region. There are over 400 vineyards in England and Wales covering some 3,500 acres and producing both sparkling and still wines.
Many working vineyards offer a variety of outdoor space, providing opportunities for team building, outdoor pursuits, social events and company fun days. Wine tasting adds a fun and informal educational element to corporate hospitality and networking events, be it via a quiz, wine matching, dinners or trips to famous vineyards and wine-producing regions.
And if viticulture – the science, practice and study of vineyard production – isn’t for you or your guests, then perhaps one of the many independent, specialist breweries could provide the perfect backdrop. Many working breweries offer an insight into their trade and an unusual setting for events, while some historic brewery buildings have been converted to provide purpose-built event space. These buildings, many of them listed, can be cavernous spaces capable of hosting thousands of guests.
