What is Corporate Incentive Travel?

Firstly, you may be wondering “what is incentive travel exactly?” Well, the term refers to a trip that has been planned for the purpose of motivating, incentivizing or showing gratitude to employees. Such experiences can be used as team-building exercises, networking opportunities or simply as a treat for all of their hard work.

Types of Incentive Travel: Group Wine Tasting

While there are plenty of different ways to plan incentive travel, one of the best ways is by organizing a group wine tasting. We have popped some below for inspiration.

Corporate and Incentive Tour in Cognac

Take a corporate and incentive travel trip to the glorious Cognac countryside for a lavish adventure sampling the world’s finest eau-de-vie. Begin by jetting off to the rolling valleys of Bordeaux before diving into a tailor-made experience with colleagues and clients. 

On a bespoke cognac tour, you will be led through historic distilleries and meet cellar masters who will teach you all the secrets behind their unique craft. Additionally, a local expert will teach you the art behind making the perfect long and short drinks.

Conclude your visit with an exclusive ceremonial tasting of Grand Cru Cognacs, one of the most highly regarded varieties in the world. You may also wish to retreat to the dining salon to sample a bottle specially labeled in honor of the occasion.

Let the adventure continue by calling at the thermal baths and investigating modern art showcased in a castle within the Perigord Valley before setting off on a hot air balloon ride for a wine-tasting experience in a First Classified Growth. You cannot go wrong with a corporate wine tour in Bordeaux!



Corporate Wine Tour in Porto and Douro Valley

There are few destinations more well-suited for corporate group travel than the glorious Portuguese city of Porto. Take a corporate wine tour through the stunning metropolis, exploring its rich architecture, history and culture before attending a welcome reception in a traditional port cellar.

At W & J Graham’s 1890 Lodge, you and the rest of the group can indulge in a cocktail on the sun-soaked open-air terrace before attending an evening meal complete with wine pairing in the glass atrium. 

In the morning, board a private train to the vineyards and Quintas in the dazzling Douro Valley for a tour of the vineyards. The sight of the winding rivers of the valleys and rolling hills flourishing with vines is nothing short of breathtaking. 

Sit down to an open-air wine tasting amidst the glorious scenery before returning to Porto for a delicious evening meal serenaded by the dulcet tones of the finest Fado singers. This gorgeous Portuguese city is one of the finest incentive travel destinations.
