It's Wine O'clock Somewhere
Synpulse Annual Wine Challenge
Last week, Synpulse USA hosted its annual wine challenge. This event provides the opportunity for our clients, business partners, and Synpulse team members to mix and mingle and build relationships in a casual, fun environment. Back by popular demand, Markus Niggli, Founder of Markus Wine Co., hosted this year’s challenge.
It’s known that Synpulse thinks outside the box. So rather than just having a typical wine tasting, we took it up a notch. As guests arrived, they were placed on a team for the upcoming challenge. Instead of placing each person with a team full of people they already knew (what’s the fun in that?), we mixed it up a bit so no matter what industry or business our guests were in, they were sure to meet someone new. After some light conversation and introductions, we announced the start of our Family Feud style wine challenge. Move over Steve Harvey, there is a new host in town, and just like a fine wine, his ability to entertain gets better with time!
Clients, business partners, and Synpulse staff had some friendly competition with one another to see who was the most knowledgeable about wine… and who could hit the buzzer quickest! This wine challenge not only got everyone engaged and excited, but it gave everyone the opportunity to meet some new business professionals in a casual setting.
After multiple rounds of questions, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres, and a heart-pounding final round, the gold team came out victorious! Along with bragging rights, the champions took home some essential wine accessories. Following the challenge, the night continued with more wine, laughs and relationship building. We could not have been happier with this event and are glad we were able to bring everyone together for a memorable evening.
This night would not have been possible without Markus, who provided us with great insight into the world of wine making and what it takes to produce wine as delicious as his. Until next year, we leave you with this piece of advice, “It doesn't matter if the glass is half empty or half full; there's always room for more wine.”
