Wine Time Friday, (lovingly referred to around these parts as WTF), is even better than it sounds. Basically, it’s a low-key company event that’s grown from a few employees wine tasting around the in-office bar, to an organized competition. Teams bring in their favorite wine to sample, and this year, we used a new app that our friends in Shift built to vote on the best wines of the bunch. The winning wines moved on to the next round, and the losing wines — well, they get consumed anyway. It was also the perfect opportunity to test the new app and find any bugs or glitches.
If you’re trying to imagine how this works, just envision your March Madness bracket, but with wine. We started with the Sweet Sixteen, moved onto the Elite Eight, then the Final Four, and finally, the Championship. Hanging out with coworkers, sipping tiny glasses of wine, and playing with iPads — all while tapping into our competitive spirit, was pretty awesome.
This time around, the team of Andrew S., Emily S., and Cody came out on top with their Hob Nob Pinot Noir.
You should try it. After all, it comes highly recommended from all your friends at Performance Marketing, Shift and Blue Traffic.
