Corporate Outings

Thank you for considering Deepwater Vineyard as a venue for your upcoming corporate event! We are a fully functioning winery and premier event space. Our rustic, charming backdrop under the Live Oaks of Wadmalaw Island provide an amazing ambience for corporate team building activities, client entertaining, and team building retreats. Deepwater Vineyard will create a completely seamless event planning process for your company.

A local and visitor favorite, we grow and harvest the grapes as well as make and bottle our wines all on site. You'll find us about 30 minutes south of Charleston, on the sleepy island of Wadmalaw.  Our vineyard offers walking trails, many animals to get to know, a garden, a large pond, the winery (of course), our gift shop, and Firefly distillery.  Prepare to spend a few hours or a full day. Whether you’re a large or small group, the vineyard is a unique, one of a kind way to spend the day for your corporate outing.

For large groups, we will break up the day into groups of 100 that we will schedule throughout the day or the week.   Our corporate event specialist will work closely with you to customize your experience.  Here are just a few suggestions for how we can create your unique event at the vineyard.
