5. Mead or Wine Tasting

We all enjoy the occasional Friday tipple at the pub with work colleagues, although adapted to a video call (and the company credit card being nowhere in sight), the format can get a little stale. Instead, connect with your work colleagues over a new tasting experience!

For a unique and memorable team bonding activity, mead tasting is our go-to. A member of the Gosnells Team will guide you through a range of meads, giving you time to enjoy your new favourite drink and learn more about how it's made.

Or, wine lovers (and beginners) amongst the team will love the opportunity to soak in some culture from the comfort of their own home with Virtual Wine Tastings. Each team member will be sent a sommelier-selected range of wines to their doorstep for a 60-90 minute tasting. From fine wine tasting to blind wine tasting games, there's something to suit every team's vibe!

Mead tasting is suitable for any team size, while wine tasting suits teams of 6-100

From £10 per person + postage (mead) or £40 + postage (wine)

Each participant gets sent a tiny campfire kit in advance, including a campfire candle, wood matches and s'more ingredients. Then, come camp day, an energetic camp counsellor will help you create a virtual adventure full and make plenty of shared memories as a team.
