As one of the oldest operators of Virginia winery tours, we enjoy strong relationships with the wineries on our weekend public trips – providing convenient and reliable access to DC’s Wine Country to hundreds of residents and visitors every year.
While weekend day trips and vineyard weddings have been the most visible draw to the Loudoun winescape, corporate events and specialty celebrations are filling more and more tasting rooms during the weekdays and after hours.
One of our go-to wineries for those types of events has been 868 Estate Vineyards, thanks to the dining options offered by its full-service restaurant on site, Grandale Vintner’s Table. Executive Chef Author Clark Jr. has long enjoyed a reputation in the region as an early advocate for farm-to-table dining, and recently transformed the front of the house into a chic yet casual setting that invites guests to indulge in curated tastings and menu pairings.
When you’re looking for a unique venue for an office team luncheon, client appreciation, retirement celebration or any other corporate function, Grandale’s Weekday Offerings Package provides your group with the upscale dining options of a downtown restaurant in the bucolic setting of the Loudoun countryside. Exclusive use of the farm restaurant requires a minimum of 20 persons and maxes out at 32.
The 120-acre estate, however, can accommodate even larger events such as company picnics and team-building programs. Packages can be customized for various group sizes and tastes, and activities can be tailored to families (corn hole, scavenger hunts, field games, obstacle courses) or adults (wine games, wine tastings).
If your corporate group has scheduled activities elsewhere in the area, Grandale provides an exclusive private dining experience after hours at the restaurant or in the winery tasting room. The menu can be pre-selected or customized with Chef Author, and in good weather the group can enjoy cocktails on the back deck before heading inside to enjoy dinner.
