Tired of staring at the same four boardroom walls each day? Give yourself and your team a much-needed change of scenery by booking an outdoor meeting with Vintage Hotels! With everything from gourmet cuisine to fuel your next big idea to wine tours that promote valuable team building, we have something for you.
Your outdoor meeting in Ontario wine country wouldn’t be complete without a tasting at one of our premier local wineries!
The Hare Wine Co.
With over 20 years of experience in boutique, small-batch winemaking, The Hare Wine Co. is the perfect place to sip on some of Niagara’s best homegrown wines. Your team will enjoy a flight of 4 wines, with your choice of table wines or ice wines (a Niagara specialty!). Your personal wine-tasting guide will provide fascinating, behind-the-scenes info about their winemaking process, along with the remarkable history of this sprawling estate. Your team will love taking home a bottle of their 2020 Sparkling Rosé, with its summery flavours of strawberry, peach, and citrus.
Château Des Charmes
With various tasting experiences to choose from, your team will love all the premium wines and fabulous accompaniments on offer at Château des Charmes! Take a guided tour of their vineyards and wine cellars, finishing with a flight of 4 VQA wines. For your at-home enjoyment, try their 2016 Old Vines Riesling, a tangy, acidic wine with fresh bursts of lemon and lime.
Queenston Mile Vineyard
Join Queenston Mile on their exclusive private patio for a tasting flight of 3 luxurious wines, with an optional choice of additional beer and cocktails. Take advantage of their Signature Experience for a pairing of fine artisan cheeses and go home with a bottle of their 2021 Mile White, which boasts fruity flavours of Meyer lemon, pear, and nectarine.
Team Building Activities
The Gardens at Pillar and Post
Nestled in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake lies The Gardens at Pillar and Post, a Monet-inspired garden complete with a large pond, promenade and a picturesque bridge. Also in The Gardens is a large green space located right next to our walk-up café, The Outpost. Join us for small bites and craft cocktails while enjoying team bonding playing lawn games on the grass.
The 100-Acre Challenge at Millcroft Inn & Spa
Embark on a challenging (and fun!) adventure with your team at Millcroft Inn & Spa! Following your meeting, you and your team can enjoy the great outdoors while building skills they can take back to the office. During the 100-Acre Challenge, each team will receive a list of tasks to complete within 45 minutes, taking you around the property of Millcroft Inn, and to find many of our “hidden gems”.
Whether you’re looking to refuel before your next meeting or decompress after a long day, our upscale outdoor dining options are the perfect way to reward yourself and your team for your efforts.
Millcroft Inn & Spa’s Erin Terrace
Relax after a long day of meetings with a glass of fine wine or a local brew on this sunny terrace overlooking the sparkling waters of the millpond! Bask in the sunshine at Headwaters Restaurant, located in Millcroft Inn, and take in the view as we serve delicious cuisine using only the best local, farm-fresh ingredients. Tuck into our summer BBQ menu, designed by our chefs, especially for our corporate clients, and enjoy classics like our Millcroft Burger and Miso Marinated Halibut with your choice of sides. Finish with our chef’s delicious dessert selection and a steaming hot cup of coffee or tea.
Tiara Outdoor Patio
At Queen’s Landing, Tiara Restaurant’s outdoor patio is the perfect lunch spot to refuel and refresh before getting back to business. Enjoy the fresh air and classic fare this award-winning restaurant provides, which takes inspiration from the heaping harvest bounty of the Niagara region. Order our Bacchus Turkey Club Sandwich for a gourmet spin on a lunchtime favourite, or try our Classic Beef Chili for some good, old-fashioned comfort food. Indulge with our Dark Chocolate Tart paired with a rich, full-bodied Niagara red wine for a delectably smooth finish.
