Corporate Wine – Looking to add fun to your Business events?

Gift giving within the business world has been going on since the dawn of time. Usually, a way to entice customers to your goods or services, or a way to help close a deal, gift giving is usually not expected but is very much appreciated. Gift giving has been shown to increase revenue and can be a great way to build and maintain important relationships.
Clients will often associate gift-giving as a sign of the value you hold for them and their business. When you provide gifts, especially thoughtful and unusual ones, they remember your business. Your business will be at the forefront of their mind when they are looking to do business.

There are a variety of different ways to provide gifts to clients, so before you reach for the Branded pens, consider Corporate wine.

Wine Gifts
Its Your Bottle Provide Branded wine that can be used in all corporate settings, whether you are mailing a gift to a client as a Christmas or Birthday gift, or inviting them to an event you are holding. The wines can be Personalised to include your company’s logo with a message, ensuring that they are left with a clear memory of your business.

Wine tastings
Wine tastings can be educational and fun, and it’s up to you if you want to swallow (or spit) the wine. Find a local event to take a client to, or even host your own, where a sommelier will supply the wine. You can discuss the wine as an easy ice-breaker with your client.

 

Corporate wine

Branded gifts at Events
Many organisations host events that showcase a new product, fund a charitable cause or to simply entertain clients. One way to add another dimension to the event is to offer wine from a personalised bottle during the event. The opportunity to add another place for clients to see your brand is a great way to ensure the event is remembered.

Wines can be a great way to build a relationship with a client, you can be assured that almost all recipients will use the gift, and remember your company because of it. It is a unique gift that can be used in a variety of situations.

Corporate Success – An excuse for wine?

Whether its a major deal that’s just been closed, or your business has just turned 1 year old, there should always be an excuse to celebrate an achievement at work. When the company has had something great happen, you need to celebrate the success, and you need to celebrate with wine!

ItsYourBottle can take of all of your Personalised Corporate wine and beer requirements when it comes to celebrating your company achievements. When you surprise your staff with the wine, imagine if it had your company logo on the label, really defining the success you have all worked for!

We’ve come up with four reasons to get the wine glasses out, and share a bottle or two!

First 5 years in Business

It’s often said that more than half of new businesses fail during the first five years. Making it to the 5 year mark is time to celebrate, and there is no better way to do it than a personalised bottle to each employee, provided in a an ornate box for them to take home (or drink at the subsequent party!). One customer who bought personalised wine from us had this to say:

“Hi Briony,

I’m so happy with the wine & everyone loved their gifts. It was the perfect way to celebrate with all my team”

Making the Big Sale!

Whether you’re an Estate Agency or a consultancy, a big sale is a big deal. You want to make sure that a sale is recognized and rewarded, its the best way to keep encouraging your employees and ensure the sales keep coming in. Select any of our delicious wines and design a label that recognizes the team member’s contributions to your business. Because we know that each business is individual and bespoke, we ask that businesses email us with their design idea’s. We can then create a design that perfectly matches your goal. Don’t forget to give your present the final touches by giving it in a rustic wine box to make it an even more memorable gift for your employee (Handy tip, the wine boxes can be used as shabby chic shelving or other decorations). This is a gift that will show them that you value their experience and their contributions to your company.

Removing the original bottle label

While applying the Personalised wine labels to the bottle is relatively straightforward, we often get asked on how to remove the original label. Removing a label from a wine bottle without using some tricks can be an impossible task, but we will guide you through how to ensure that it slips off easily

Method 1 – Baking Soda

You’ll Need: A sink or bowl, baking soda, a knife, a towel and some steel wool

– Soak the tag section of the wine bottle in room temperature water using 5-10 tbsp of baking soda for half an hour.
– Remove the bottle out of the water, and then carefully remove the label with a knife, ensuring that you always push the knife away from you. If some of the label won’t budge, get the steel wool out and finish it off!
– When the wine is label-free, dry it off with a towel to ensure that no residue remains. It is then ready for your new label

Method 2 – Warm Water

You’ll Need: Gloves, warm water, a towel, a knife, and steel wool

– Soak the tag section of the wine bottle in warm water for half an hour.
– Remove the bottle out of the water, and then carefully remove the label with a knife, ensuring that you always push the knife away from you. If some of the label won’t budge, get the steel wool out and finish it off!
– When the wine is label-free, dry it off with a towel to ensure that no residue remains. It is then ready for your new label

All done? Congratulations! Now you are ready to apply some new labels onto your bottles.

Great Ways To Appreciate Wine Like A Pro

Here at Its Your Bottle we want to make sure you really appreciate the wines you drink, take a read below for some tips

When it comes to wine, there are countless different types to select. Determining what a bottle of wine is ideally suited for can be somewhat tricky if you are new to this game. Fortunately, taking a read of this quick post can serve as an excellent starting point for anyone that is looking to impress their friends with their wine knowledge.

Sip it or down it?

When you are drinking a glass of wine, make sure that you savour each sip that you take. Often, you could be consuming a bottle that costs an arm and a leg so you will want to get your money’s worth. Once you have started to learn about the subtleties of wine and how to pick out individual flavours, the sipping of wine is favoured over the downing!

Leftover wine

Leftover wine (which we might point out is a sin!) must not be left for any more than 4 to 5 days. Opened wine can absorb Oxygen, which will degrade the wine. This significantly impacts the taste of the wine, making it less enjoyable. But fear not! In the unlikely case that you do leave a wine out too long, it can be used in food. We recommend a bolognese.

Personal preferences

Do not allow others to influence your taste in wines. It is necessary you try different wines to determine precisely what you enjoy. Every person has a different palate and also could not be looking for the very same flavours in a glass of wine. Do not assume that consuming a wine advised by a professional sommelier will be to your taste, just expect some backlash if you go for a red with fish.

Storage of white wine

White wines ought to be thoroughly chilled when you drink them, but you should stay clear of storing them in a fridge for weeks at a time. The best way to ensure they taste amazing is to keep them at room temperature and then stick them in the fridge an hour before serving.

Preferences

“Don’t ever turn down wine” never a truer word said in my view. Its good to try different types of wine rather than stick to a single type/brand. You might turn up your nose to Rose wine when it’s offered to you, just because you had 1 or 2 disgusting glasses a few years ago. Not all wines were born equal. You will find wines to fit your preference throughout the wine spectrum.
If you have a cellar (lucky you!) or perhaps just a shelf where you store wine, do not fill up the area entirely with wines that you enjoy right now. Your tastes are bound to transform in time. You do not want to be left with a load of wine you believe has hints of vinegar.

Getting assistance

If you go to a restaurant with a sommelier, don’t be embarrassed to ask for help. The sommelier will undoubtedly understand everything concerning the wines on the menu and also will certainly also have the ability to make a recommendation if you let them know what kind of wine you generally drink.

Taking notes

This is for the serious wine hobbyists. Keep a notebook entirely for wine. The most straightforward way to track the wines that you appreciate and the ones that you do not like is to keep a log of them. You could also include the food and environment that you consumed them with to make sure that you could repeat the experience.

Wine types

The differences between red and white wine are simple, its all in the way they are produced as described in our previous post on wine types. Red grapes are pressed two times, releasing a larger amount of tannin’s and lightening up the shade of the wine. This is what makes the color so deep and the taste so full bodied.

Smell and taste

To obtain the full taste spectrum of your glass of wine, you will want to smell it a few times. The very first time, take a slow, long breath from outside the glass. The next time, take a sniff with your nose inside. You will then fully appreciate the different notes of each type of wine and may pick up on more than just the taste.

Towards the end of the night…

Splashed some red wine on your gorgeous dress? The initial step is to put soda water on the stain as soon as you can. No soda around? White wine will also do the job. Blot it with a paper towel rather than smear to soak up the wine, then clean it in bleach and water to get the stain out.
