Valais Wine Olympics

The Wine Olympics, with its motto of “play while you learn, learn while you play”, allows its participants to enhance their team building skills as well as improve their knowledge of wine at the Fin Bec, Yvo Mathier vineyard in Sion, Switzerland, by means of fun and games. Up to six disciplines, such as precision cork throwing, vine puzzles, bottling or “How old am I?”, form the central theme of team building at the vineyard, and just next door is the opportunity to taste a selection of the winemaker’s finest-quality wines under expert supervision. The number of disciplines and wines to be tasted is at your disgression - the choice is yours depending on your budget and the length of your stay.

Precision cork throw

Coordination and teamwork
The victor is the team which manages to throw the most corks into a small wooden press from 3 metres away (each participant can throw 3 corks!).

Vine puzzle

Coordination and teamwork
The team that can build the highest tower out of grape vines is the winner. Assembling and disassembling are fundamental to team building.

How old am I?

Taste three wines of the same grape variety and try to work out the age of each wine.


Coordination and teamwork
You have 10 litres of water, various corks, bottles and a cork machine. The winner is the team that manages to decant as much water as possible into the intended bottles.

What can you smell?

Coffee, rosemary, thyme, rose blossom? You will be presented with six different aromas, and your challenge is to work out which one is which.

Judging wine defects

Corked, sulphide aromas, acidic? We’ll introduce you to the most important wine defects.
