Plan a Next-Level Employee Appreciation Experience this Month


Employees are a special and important part of any business. They’re the people behind your company’s purpose and mission who work hard every day to bring it all to life. But according to studies, more than half of employees feel they’re not appreciated or thanked at work.


As we roll into National Employee Appreciation Week, how are you celebrating your team? Let us help you curate a memorable experience – it’s our specialty! From a delicious luncheon or private dinner to homemade desserts and special wine tastings, there are plenty of ways to make your team feel the love. Here are 5 next level ideas for your gathering:


1. Magnificent Mid-Day Celebration – Gather your employees together for an afternoon luncheon in our unique Chalet. Say thanks with a flavorful meal, like our Quinstock Spicy Pepper Burger made with homemade Pepper Jam or a Mediterranean Pizza paired with a G.O. Maui Mocktail. There is something on the menu for all ages and preferences.


2. Sweet Thanks – Invite your team to sit back and relax around our cozy Chalet fire for an evening. Sweeten the night with a round of delicious desserts, like our famous Butter Cake, Peanut Butter Pie, New York Style Cheesecake, and Flour-Less Chocolate Tarte with seasonal berries. These decadent desserts also make great gifts!


3. Over-the-Top Cheers – Did you know that every Thursday is #WineThursday at Gideon Owen? Each week, we offer an exciting and different experience to sample delicious wines. Savor the flavor, learn something new together, and enjoy in conversation at our Taste & Talks, Flights & Bites events, and Wine Dinner experiences. Come every week for a fun after work get together!

4. Raise-the-Glass Evening – Bring your team, their spouses, and significant others together for a dinner to celebrate the top-notch work they’ve achieved this year. Raise a glass of Gideon Owen wine or a pint of Twin Oast beer and devour a plate of Seafood Bouillabaisse or the Berkshire Kurobuta Pork Chops with a generous helping of our Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes. A private event in our historic Cellar is sure to leave a lasting impression and create a buzz in the office the next day.


5. Toast on Tuesday – Every Tuesday, we ship Oysters from across the world straight to our kitchen. Invite your staff to a special dinner to taste the different flavors. Give thanks to your team and toast to their latest accomplishments with a signature cocktail, like our Cranberry Margarita, Raspberry Rum Mule, Gideon’s Old Fashioned, or Italian Gin and Tonic.


Any way you choose to celebrate, we’ll help your team feel pampered and appreciated. Create a one-of-a-kind experience this month or any time of the year. Reserve a table in the Chalet or purchase tickets to a special tasting. For large parties, please contact our Director of Events at events@gideonowenwine.com.
