Corporate EVENTS

More wine, less whine. Whether your office needs to unwind after a long week with an expert curated wine and food pairing event, or you want to take your team on a morale-boosting winemaking field trip to an area vineyard, I’ve got you covered. My corporate services promote team camaraderie, boost morale and downright school your staff on one of the finest things in life; wine! I can develop a custom experience or you may build from any of the following examples:

Monthly Office Wine Tasting Parties

Unwind in your office after a long workweek with a handpicked sampling of wines, paired alongside cheese and/or appetizers. Or, gather your team for a hosted Riedel glass tasting. Experience the difference the shape and size of a glass have on the taste of the wine.

Team-Building Winery Field Trips

Your group will be provided with transportation to and from a Woodinville winery and divided into teams. They are then taught the art of “blind” tasting wine. Teams will compete using the skills they’ve learned by trying to guess the grape/blend of several different wines. The team that gets the most right wins prize!

Winemaking Retreats

Head out to Woodinville for a one-of-a-kind experience with a local winemaker! Groups are divided into pairs and have the rare opportunity to sample through a handful of barrels alongside the winemaker. Each pair will create their own blend and head to the assembly line, where they will bottle their wine, which is theirs to keep!

Multi-Course Somm & Chef Wine Dinners

Experience the magic when food and wine are paired together in perfect harmony! This package is ideal for hosting an off-site executive meeting held at location of your choosing. The chef and I will craft a menu with each course individually paired to the appropriate wine.

ALL Services INCLUDE:

  • Support and collaboration with the event host and any chefs or caterers
  • Engagement, education and entertainment (regarding wine) with your attendees
  • A customized PDF of your event’s tasting notes, ready to print and disseminate

Vineyard Retreats

Join me for a retreat in wine country!

I’ve teamed up with several partners to curate exclusive experiences with chefs and vineyards throughout these regions to create this unique experience. We'll drink at my favorite wineries and we'll dine with seasonally inspired chefs who create a food experience to die for.

My vineyard retreats are customizable and can optionally include overnight stays IN the wineries, private vintner dinners and other bespoke experiences.

I started following “Quit WINEing” years ago and was drawn to Courtney’s fun, lighthearted take on wines and food & wine pairings. As an event planner, I reached out to collaborate on a Champagne tasting event. Courtney was extremely knowledgeable, open to any ideas, and a great collaborator. Our attendees absolutely loved her! She has a great energy and I love her passion for wines and Champagne. I would absolutely love to work with her again or attend one of her wine pairing dinners!
