Event PlanningWine Management in Event Planning

Event Planning requires great organisational skills, but when it comes to arranging the wine at special events or corporate events you need a professional Wine Specialist or Sommelier.

When planning an event having determined its purpose, the number of people expected at the event you then need to think about food and wine.  Will it be buffet food or a sit down event and what kind of wine will be appropriate?

The Cork” is a Sommelier providing professional services to Event Planners, from a fundraiser to a corporate event and everything in between, we can help you.

Understanding wine and how it pairs with food is a complex talent, get it wrong and your guests will remember your event for the wrong reason!

When it comes to Event Planning The Cork can “take that monkey off your shoulder”, we can help match your planned food menu with a wine that will meet your clients expectations and fit into your budget. We can also help you choose the right food from the start and couple it with a wine selection that is an exquisite match.

Delegating “the wine” aspect of your Event Planning will leave you free to get on with planning the advertising,  budget, content, decorations, entertainment, guest list, location, marketing, music,  speakers and all the other aspects of Event Planning.

An Event Planner needs to be able to manage their time intelligently to ensure a successful event, with adequate preparation for every stage.  When Event Planning you would not consider doing the cooking yourself because you recognize that a chef or caterer has specialist skills, well it is the same with wine.

Often Event Planners find that it is more economical to delegate the wine aspect of their event to The Cork because we have trade access to some of the best wine sources and vineyards in the country.

You may also want to consult The Cork for ideas about the location aspect of Event Planning, we often arrange events in Vineyards, having a Wine Tasting and/or Food Tasting Event in and around a corporate event is a great way to bring people together for team building.
