ENRICH MINDS ELEVATE PALATES ENGAGE TEAMS
Looking for a fun and tasty team-building event that includes some learning? Why not an interactive talk on honey wine?
Your company department or civic organization can have honey wine authority and conservationist Ayele Solomon talk about the wine that moved humans “from nature to culture” - in the words of the renowned anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss. You'll learn why honey wine has been consumed more than grape wine throughout history, and why almost every culture in the world has a word for honey wine - making it the world’s only universal beverage (well, other than water and milk, of course). You'll also learn why only one country, Ethiopia, Ayele's birthplace, kept drinking it as a national beverage.
Sustainability issues such as deforestation, the carbon footprint of wine, and bee colony collapse disorder are also covered in this unique and unforgetable interactive presentation.
Ayele has presented at the annual conference of The American Wine Society, and to employees of various startups as well as established corporations such as JW Marriott and Ethiopian Airlines. He will share his experiences with starting The Honey Wine Company and creating Bee d'Vine. Participants will get a flavor of the “The Celebrated Story of Honey Wine,” which won “Best in the World” at the 2015 Gourmand Awards - the Oscars for cookbooks and winebooks.
Best of all, each talk has a happy ending! That is, if free tastings of multi-Gold Medal winning, dry and semi sweet honey wine excites you.
