All our corporate programs are customized to meet your specifications and goals -these are just a few examples and suggestions:

Road rally in vintage cars in the vineyards

The region of Bordeaux offers a diverse range of landscapes from the medieval hamlets and bucolic scenery of the right bank, to the flat, former swamplands of the Médoc punctuated with stately manors and wine estates. Get behind the wheel of a vintage car and follow our roadbook to attend a unique wine tasting event at a famed grand cru classé.

Wine blending experience

On this interactive workshop, you are invited to unveil the secrets and characteristics of Bordeaux wines, their grape varieties, etc. After the tasting of single grape variety wines, you will create your own wine blend with your team and the best one will be awarded.

Top chef cooking workshop in a Grand Cru Classé

Gather in a renowned wine estate, only 20 minutes from the city, where a kitchen brigade is expecting you. Dress as a professional chef and start the preparation of the exquisite verrines for the welcome cocktail of the evening event. The chefs will teach you some of the tricks they use so you can impress your friends and family later on. Enjoy this fun atmosphere and cheers for tonight!

Spend a leisurely day on the Arcachon Bay

Cap Ferret remains a quiet little village whose biggest assets are its booming oyster farming industry and its magnificent view across the Arcachon Bay to the towering Dune du Pilat, Europe’s tallest sand dune. We invite you to share the Cap Ferret experience in the morning during a pedestrian rally in Le Canon village. In the afternoon, nautical activities on the Dune du Pilat and its ocean beaches. Choose your preferred activity, between thrill and emotion: paragliding from the dune, jet skiing between the Bassin sand banks… Every participant will find an activity to its taste!

Gala event at a Premier Grand Cru Classé

Coachmen in period costumes stand beside twenty horse-drawn carriages as champagne is served aboard. The procession stretches out across the vineyards headed towards the wine château. A gala party and starlit dinner follow in a fabulous garden, where a children’s choir will inspire a standing ovation. For the finale, floodlit vineyards, balloon lights and the hotel’s façade adorned with the colored company logo.

Our corporate activities are destination-specific and we always make sure that they reflect the culture and ambiance of the location itself. We strive to make your trip feel like a personal experience versus a one-size-fits-all. Contact us to start planning your company’s bespoke corporate retreat, incentive or team building program among the vineyards of Bordeaux.
