Thank you for visiting Scalawine.

Businesses need to market themselves, more so in a recession. Part of that is getting to know clients on a personal basis, away from the immediate pressure of doing business. Corporate wine events are a brilliant way to achieve that.
Fine wine is a perfect choice for corporate wine events, a symbol of well-being, good taste and conviviality. There is no better touchstone of what your business is about than networking with the quality, allure and international reference of fine wine.
This website will help you visualise, plan and organise successful wine events – you will do more business and open more doors. Scala School of Wine has three strengths in the corporate event market:

I was exclusively invited, to the reception lab at Moët with the harvest 2015 in full swing, the only journalist this year to visit Moët’s ‘mission control’.
