While we were in Napa Valley our tour group was taken to 'Franciscan Winery', where we had a tasting and a challenge.
After the tasting we were taken into ......
.......the wine 'Library'. The winemaker explained the challenge. We would be divided into 3 groups of 8 and we had 55 mins to 'Blend the Perfect Wine', 'Provide a Marketing Concept' and 'Design a Label and bottle the wine". At the end the wine would be judged.
Others kept tasting and suggesting the percentages to make a soft, elegant wine. Hee hee it was loads of fun. While they were doing that we were all trying to think of a name for the wine. Linda was making up a Marketing Concept and I was designing the label. After fifty mins we had decided on the right percentages, bottled the wine and stuck on the label and we were ready to present it to the whole group and the judges.
Linda volunteered to present the marketing of our wine. We had called it 'Tauckabout Red" It was a play on words with the name of our tour company 'Tauck Tours".
