Located 1h30 by TGV from Paris, Burgundy is an authentic and surprising destination! For this end of year seminar, we proposed to this company to discover the space of one afternoon, a concentrate of Burgundy! On the programme, discovery of the cooper's trade with practical work, and of course a visit to the estate and tasting... Around thirty sales staff have discovered the secrets of wine, its cultivation and maturing! A moment of exchange and laughter that everyone remembers fondly!
From the barrel...
First of all, first meeting with Sylvain, professional cooper and above all passionate! The group discovered the secrets and history of the barrels, interspersed with anecdotes... Then it was time for the practical work! And it was as a team that each participant was able to reveal his or her cooper talents! Staves, masses, circles, each one with his own technique to make his barrel the most beautiful........and above all the strongest!! A surprising team-building where everyone gets into the game! Laughter, bad faith and challenge, an activity with undeniable success!
...at the tasting!
Following the election of the best barrel, the second high point of this seminar took place in an estate in the renowned village of Pommard... On the programme, a walk around the estate in the company of the winemaker, a visit to the cellars and discussions with the cellar master on the maturing of his wines, the specificities of the region... An original meeting rich in knowledge, where each participant at his level of knowledge, was able to exchange in all simplicity with this passionate and fascinating professional!
Finally, to close this seminar, it is impossible to leave the region without a small tasting! A theme had been selected and it was accompanied by the best cheeses of the region that the participants were able to exchange with a sommelier on food and wine pairings. A panorama of Burgundy, between landscapes, cellars and tastings! A great experience and the desire for some to come back to see us with friends!!... 🙂
