Are you a Winocerous? With Bob Campbell MW

Starts: 10/10/2013 18:15
Venue: Villa Maria Estate
City: Auckland
Country: New Zealand
Details: Join us for a evening of fun as you challenge yourself and your team with this unique NZ Wine Tasting Challenge. We'll have Master of Wine Bob Campbell along to host the evening. The urban dictionary defines a Winoceros as "A person who takes extreme pride in thier ability to recognise and describe wine just by sniffing it" 

This game concept developed in NZ sees teams pitting themselves against the wine expert to taste, sniff and score wines blind with the objective of matching Bob Campbell's scores on the wine selection.

This event is a social team competition, so book yourself in as a group (6 is ideal) or if you don't have a team, no problem - we'll buddy you up with others.

This is a blind competition so we can't tell you what the wines are, what we can share is that there'll be wine on arrival and 5 wines tasted as part of the game. 

Cost: $39 includes wine tasting, light supper and coffee/tea (booking confirmed upon payment). Reservations required. Tickets are limited.

We have been working with Battersby HR Consulting for several years and have found both Heather and Paddy Battersby invaluable in terms of their professional services and experience in the industry.

They have assisted us in all areas from OSH manuals/requirements to employee contracts/issues and contractor contracts. I am sure there are many more areas they can help us with in the future.

Battersby HR Consulting have been very helpful in dealing with employment issues and in providing the practical assistance needed to deal with these issues (no matter how delicate or small) in the correct manner. They have been wonderfully supportive and understanding of our business and what we aim to achieve.

I never hesitate to call them when I feel I need an objective view of my situation and I have referred Battersby HR Consulting to friends and colleagues in the industry as well as outside and would have no hesitation in doing the same in the future.
