What is “Beyond the Wine”?

With a new philosophy for wineries and hospitality, we offer an innovative approach to training and coaching for teams and their leaders. We go beyond the training that is specific to your wines or hospitality services - after all, you’ve got that covered. With advanced tools and interactive exercises, we train your leadership team in the fine art of tasting room and hospitality management, and in the communication techniques the team needs to create an authentic connection with your guests and with each other. This results in higher DTC (Direct-to-Consumer) sales, more Wine Club enrollment for wineries and greater employee engagement and retention, lifelong loyal customers and rave reviews for all types of our clients!
