With inviting spaces both large and small, Markham Vineyards can host whatever you can imagine — from intimate meetings to team-building exercises to elegant corporate dinners. We can also help set up a virtual tasting event to help keep your team connected and engaged if you can’t come in person. All onsite events include exclusive use of the winery and an onsite event coordinator to help you plan every detail of your special event.
The Ultimate Client Dinner
The Markham stone cellar provides an elegant setting for your dinner and is available for groups of 15 to 200. Our friendly Event Team will be happy to arrange every detail, so all you have to do is wine — and dine! Each customized wine pairing dinner includes exclusive use of the winery and an onsite coordinator to assist in planning and implementation of your event.
A Lunch Break from the Ordinary
Our full menu of corporate lunch options is available — from casual box lunches to seated three-course meals in our historic stone cellar, or al fresco on our outside patio.
Team Building Activities
GROUP WINE TASTINGS
Few things bring a team together faster than a private wine tasting! With three different private tasting opportunities for groups of 10 or more, it’s a perfect stand-alone activity or add-on to another event.
WINE COUNTRY IRON CHEF
It’s like a culinary crash course in the good life! Our experienced — and patient — chefs introduce you to team building basics and share the recipes for the menu you will be preparing. Imagination and creativity are actively encouraged in this timed event. Bonus: enhance the experience by sipping Markham’s award-winning wines while cooking!
PIZZA, PESTO & MOZZARELLA
How do you react when the heat is on? Literally! Under the guidance of our professional chefs, three teams are given the recipes, ingredients and tools for three different items. Choose a clever design, fire up the oven, create your masterpiece and prepare a two-minute presentation for our esteemed judges. Enjoy the fruits of your labor along with Markham Vineyards wines for lunch.
GUACAMOLE & SALSA CHALLENGE WITH LUNCH
Team building gets spicier when you create your own guacamole and salsa. But there’s more than cooking to this challenge! Each team divides into chefs, graphic designers and sales and marketing directors. You will create your team’s specialties, choose a name and design the packaging for your signature guac and salsa. Plus, you’ll create a short ad campaign to “sell” your product. This zesty competition is followed with a Mexican-themed lunch perfectly paired with Markham Vineyards’ award-winning wines.
BRING MARKHAM TO YOU
Can’t make it to the winery? We’ll come to you! A Markham wine educator brings a sampling of five award-winning wines to your Napa-area hotel and conducts a private tasting for you and your guests. Please allow an hour for this experience. For groups of 15 or more.
Team Building Activities
Best Zoom Meeting EVER
Bring the team together for a special “at-home-office” tasting of Markham’s limited production and Estate wines. We’ll help you choose two to four wines for your tasting and send custom packages to all participants. The Virtual Tasting is led by one of our friendly Wine Guides who leads your team through a special online tasting, sharing stories and insights about the wines and the vineyards.
