“Being an Ambassador is not just about wine, it’s about a lifestyle! 

That luxury side of the business is something you don’t really experience fully until you attend Retreat.”

 

Cassandra M., California

“I signed up in 2015 in January and I was out at Retreat 2 weeks later without ever selling a dime’s worth of wine. It was the best thing I ever did!

I learned so much over the weekend and met so many Ambassadors from across the country. I met Jean-Charles and the winemakers, plus great speakers who are super-motivational and give you great tips on how to grow your business and make it better!”

FAQs

 

  • I am not an Ambassador yet, but am thinking about joining. Can I attend Retreat?

    Only Boisset Ambassadors are eligible to purchase tickets to attend our 2021 Ambassador Retreat. New Ambassadors who enroll in the month of January will receive a special discount code entitling them to 20% savings on their Retreat package purchase, and our premium Enrollment Kits are also 50% off in January! That's a great reason to enroll today!

  • What digital platform will be used for Retreat? What do I need to be able to participate?

    We will be using Zoom Webinars for most Retreat presentations, with Q&A and chat functions enabled to ensure Ambassadors can engage with the presenters and amongst themselves. Social events, such as the First-Timer's Meet & Greet, VIP Wine Social and Awards Gala, where is is important for everyone to be able to see each other and connect, will be structured as Zoom Meetings.

    Complete participation details, including Zoom registration links, detailed agenda and guidelines on best practices will be shared via email  by 2/12. Participants are responsible for their own technological requirements: having an adequate internet connection and having the Zoom client downloaded on a suitable device.

  • Some of the wines included in the Retreat packages don't have full details published online yet. Can I get more info on these?

    Many of the wines we are presenting at Retreat, particularly those in the Deluxe VIP Package, are new - so new that complete details are not yet available from the production team. We are compiling all of that information now and expect to have complete information posted by 1/22.

  • What is the deadline for registration?

    For registration packages that include a wine shipment - Wine Lover's Package or Deluxe VIP Package - registration will end on Sunday 2/14, however we recommend that Ambassadors order these packages by Wed 2/10 to ensure Ground delivery in time for Retreat. Registration for this package will end on Sunday 2/14. For the Digital-Only Package, registration will end on Friday 2/19.

     

  • I am new and this will be my first Retreat. Will there be any kind of orientation provided for newbies?

    At our in-person Ambassador Retreats, we always host a "First-Timer's Breakfast" on the morning of Day One, to provide a forum for new Ambassadors to meet Boisset Collection's home office team and our top "Leaders", who are our most successful Ambassadors in the field from across the country. Since we are going virtual this year, in lieu of breakfast, we will host a Saturday morning "Meet & Greet" at 8am PT, to help you put names to faces and to provide a high-level overview of what to expect from your first Retreat experience!

  • Who can participate in Leader Day? If I qualify but can’t attend, can I access the recorded content later?

    Leader Day is an invitation-only event reserved for those Ambassadors who have earned a paid-as title of Director or above at least once in 2020 or in January of 2021. Invitations will go out via email in early January for those who qualified in 2020 and in the first few days of February for those who qualify in 2021. There is no charge for Leader Day. The presentations will be recorded for later viewing for those Ambassadors who cannot attend.

  • Will I be able to cancel my registration? Can my Retreat Box be returned?

    Cancellation requests must be received on or before 2/1 to be considered for returns and credits. Transfers from one Ambassador to another are not permitted.

     

  • Can more than one Ambassador share a single registration?

    Every Ambassador who would like to participate in Retreat should register individually, with the sole exception of two-person teams who operate under a single Ambassador enrollment or those who otherwise reside in the same household. The majority of the Retreat programming will be in a Zoom Webinar format with a unique link and password distributed to each person who registered.

  • Can I record the Ambassador Retreat sessions to share with my team or prospective Ambassadors?

    Ambassadors are prohibited from recording and broadcasting any portion of our virtual event.

    Boisset will record the event and some sessions are likely to be shared afterwards, but only through official channels. The event will be recorded and photographed and Boisset Collection reserves the right to use images and recordings obtained in future marketing and promotions.
