When it comes to corporate gifts, nothing has as much universal appeal and gourmet food and fine wine.

Looking for elegant corporate gifts for incentive program winners? Here are 5 fabulous choices with a food & wine theme.

Wine Travels with VinGarde Valise

For programs to wine regions, such as those in California, France, Italy, Spain, Argentina and many others, VinGarde Valise is an innovative, patented suitcase designed to easily and safely transport wines and/or other spirits as checked luggage. The Grande size transports up to 12 standard 750ml sized bottles, the Petite size up to 8 bottles and a new cabin sized model, the Piccolo, up to 5 bottles.  With these unique cases, winners can take their favorite bottles home from the wineries they visit and the Piccolo is ideal for travelers to transport their wine and spirit purchases from airport Duty Free stores, because it can be carried on and then if the traveler has a stopover flight, checked to their final destination.  Travelers can also divide their cases to use half for their clothes.  VinGarde Valises are also great for planners to use to transport special wines for their VIPs and they are carefully designed with many options, such as inserts for glassware, chillers for summer travel, inserts for beer and spirits and the cases can be branded with client logos.

A Spirited Thank You from ReserveBar

ReserveBar supplies a variety of limited edition gift sets, such as this one from Casamigos, which can be a great reminder of the incentive destination, such as in this case Cabo San Lucas, branded for the client program and theme, engraved for the individual winners and then drop-shipped to them directly at their homes.

Sail Away with Sea Bags

Sea Bags are born as sails and transformed into nautically inspired totes and accessories that bring people happiness. After serving as sails that soak up the sun, salt, smiles and adventure, the material is cleaned before being made into bags, so retain the essence of what they once were, where they’ve been and what they’ve done. It’s this previous life that makes each bag unique. The wine tote and ice bucket are great choices for F&B gifts!

Fine Wines with Custom Labels

Give your winners fine vintage wines, in bottles custom branded for your incentive travel or other recognition event.  Vintage Wine Estates is a California wine producer with many fine wine brands and varietals available for customization of labels and engraving.  Choose wines from a variety of the Vintage Wine Estate wine brands including Windsor Vineyards, Girard Winery, Viansa Sonoma, and Sonoma Coast Vineyards. With over 20 years of experience in creating premium etched designs, their team of etching professionals will create the highest-quality presentation for your brand or event.
