A Company Bonding Experience
Here, at Napa Valley Lodge, we take pride in having some of the best and most fun team building activities at our disposal. Whether it’s a day of wine tasting, culinary cooking class, or a hike to the top of Mt. St. Helena, we can help you plan the perfect activity for your group to experience together.
Wine Blending Seminars
For the ultimate fun and educational experience right here on property, this is a perfect choice. This can be done with groups of almost any size and is sure to be a hit, as you enjoy learning the ins and outs of blending wines. A blending educator will walk you through the flavors and essences of individual varietals. Then smaller groups will pair off to create their very own blends, as well as develop a name and a label to compliment your unique libation. To cap off the seminar, the newly-made wines will be corked and waxed for your group to take home and show off. May the best wine win!
Of course, the one thing everyone thinks of when they come to Napa Valley is WINERIES! A full or half day of winery visits is more than feasible for groups of all sizes. Our experienced staff has a list of many notable wineries that will accept groups for both tours and tasting. The list of different experiences is vast and variable, ranging from intimate food pairings overlooking 180 degree vineyard views to exclusive vineyard-to-bottle winery tours. For your convenience, we can also help you arrange private transportation for your group. Our primary transportation company has a wide range of luxurious vehicles to transport groups of all sizes from place to place. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the wine!
Napa Valley Wine Train
The Wine Train is one of the most relaxing ways to see the Napa Valley, while enjoying delectable culinary delights and delicious wines. Enjoy a 3-hour ride up-valley and back in one of their fully-restored Pullman cars or their glass-topped Vista Dome car and take in the views and splendor of Wine Country! Choose between a lunchtime ride with a brief stop at a local winery, or a dinnertime ride at sunset. Your group will enjoy a gourmet meal made on-board the train, and sip aromatic wines from around the valley. For an extra special experience, look into one of their special events – a Vintner’s Dinner, where winemakers make an appearance to walk to you through a pairing of the food with their wines, or one of their Murder Mystery dinners, where your group might be able to help solve a conundrum happening right before their very eyes!
Bike the Valley
If you’re looking to get out of the meeting room and enjoying some fresh country air, renting a bike and heading out on the open road is the perfect way to do it. Gather your group to rent bikes and take an up close and personal tour of the vineyards. Your guests will enjoy actually riding through the vineyards as they take in Napa Valley’s postcard ready views. Groups will ride 2-3 miles from winery to winery at an effortless pace. For an even more calming group activity, plan to have lunch at one of the wineries.
While your meetings are in session, we are happy to help your significant others keep busy with an array of fun things to do. We can help them plan a group outing, or an individual activity. Whether it is an afternoon of shopping at the Napa Premium Outlets, or art gallery tour of the valley; a historic walking tour of Yountville, or a nature hike in Bothe State Park; a morning of full body massages, or cocktails and sunning by the pool– your spouse will have such a wonderful time, you’ll wish you could call in sick!
