Affairs of the Vine
Affairs of the Vine has been channeling its energy, knowledge, and resources to designing and conducting outstanding team building wine experiences and theme focused wine events to address the goals of corporate clients for over 15 years.
Recognized as the industry’s top wine education company, Affairs of the Vine originated out of love and passion for wine. Conducting its first public Wine Boot Camp in the fall of 1999, the phones at Affairs of the Vine began to ring with requests from colleges and culinary institutes across the country for interactive workshops and seminars. Expanding to corporate events was a natural progression for the knowledgeable staff of experienced educators.
These unique educational events are designed to be fun, entertaining and highly informative. Affairs of the Vine conducts a broad range of corporate wine events, extensive wine industry training and team building workshops. In the year 2012, Affairs of the Vine passionately poured wine for and shared information with over 150,000 people. The Affairs of the Vine website attracts over 1,200,000 visitors per year.
Affairs of the Vine events always exceed expectations.
I highly recommend Barbara and AFFAIRS of the VINE for you next wine experience. Barbara executed over 20 events throughout California, Hawaii and Nevada for me in 2008. Her professionalism and dedication showed in the quality of events she produced. The interactive wine experience was exceptional and had both novices and experts walking away with new sense of wine. Each opportunity allowed us to create a sense of teamwork and leadership. It also helped grow client relationships and increase the conversion of prospects into clients. Barbara and her team handle all the details and are in constant contact with you before the event. Her follow up is tremendous and she is very quick to respond to any inquires you might have either before or after. Her organization is superb as she was able to get information to me within 15 minutes three months after an event. She is also very flexible, many times willing to make changes just days before the event. Her business and ideas are innovative and unique. I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with her and Affairs of the Vine long into the future.
