It’s a tough job, but some are lucky enough to do it; enjoy an exclusive tasting at a vineyard, distillery or club. Such occasions merit a dedicated space where due reverence is given to both product and guests. Needless to say, Fieldwork is delighted to have created several spaces devoted to taste.
The working cellar in the famous London Beefeater Distillery is the site of a specially created tasting area for the ultra-premium gin, Burrough’s Reserve, where key customers, bartenders, mixologists and journalists are invited to sample this exclusive product. Located in the working cellar, the design included movable floor-standing elements alongside permanent fixtures.
This small, exclusive Bordeaux vineyard has a busy time each spring when their young wines are ready for the En Primeur tasting. This gives the opportunity for merchants, buyers and opinion-formers to assess the future potential of wine, which at this stage, may be only six to eight months old. These tasting events are vital to the success of Clos Cantenac and Fieldwork chose to reflect the character and quality of the winery in a design inspired by the barrels.
Moët & Chandon
This leading champagne house selected a number of London clubs as sites for a special, branded VIP area. Fieldwork created an elite Moët & Chandon zone, adding extra sparkle to the brand and a further level of exclusivity to certain guests.
Chateau de Sours
The vineyard showcase of shop and tasting room, allows the wine producer a unique opportunity to interact direct with the end consumer. In this space, he/she can take control of the way in which the wine is presented and offer a relaxed and personal tasting session. At Chateau de Sours, we created a series of different oak displays to communicate the different levels of wine and a central tasting station where wine can be sampled and discussed with the winemaker.
