Rosé & Pinot Noir Yum Cha Lunch at Davids – July 23, 2016


July 23, 2016 – Rosé & Pinot Noir Yum Cha Lunch at Davids

July has been a very challenging month in terms of hosting wine events as it has been very quiet with the exception of our Rosé & Pinot Noir Yum Cha Lunch at Davids in Prahran.

Most events have had to be rescheduled and I was wondering why has it been so slow?

After speaking to a winemaker, he said it’s best to stay clear of July in terms of organising wine events because of the following reasons:

1. Cold Weather
2. School Holidays
3. Dry July
4. End of Financial Year
5. and the “deal breaker” –  the election (affects most industries)

Our Rosé & Pinot Noir Yum Cha Lunch at Davids Restaurant in Prahran is our busiest event and our previous two sessions we have booked out the entire venue for 80 people. This month we had 42 but it was a relief to get an event through.

We are constantly evolving our events and now we have an A5 booklet which has a greeting from myself, tasting notes of the wines being showcased, an order form with discounted prices of the wines for the day and all our contact details and social media details.

This event was very relaxed and the two hour session went along nicely without any problems.

We received some completed feedback forms from our guests and all of them were positive.

We take these forms seriously and it is only from these forms that we then know how to improve.
