Item Description

Napa Wine Country Insiders Tour of Napa's Favorites 3-Night Package with Airfare for (2)

 

Suggested Retail Value: Priceless

 

Enjoy an insider’s tour of the local Napa experience.  These up and coming wineries have been described as the next Harlan, Screaming Eagle, and Spottswoode of Napa Valley.  Valid one year from date of purchase, subject to availability.

 

Caldwell Vineyard (Napa) – Enjoy an insider’s tour and tasting for (2) and a three-night stay in the Caldwell Vineyard Guest House. Your tasting will be with founder John Caldwell or his winemaker, Marbue Marke, in their 20,000 square foot cave where you will be immersed in his informative, intriguing stories.  Hollywood has already taken note of John Caldwell’s story; how he single-handedly became the first Californian to discover and import rootstocks and grapevine clones from France.  They are now referred to as the “Caldwell Clones” and today, in a Bordeaux-style vineyard, clones are industry standard.  Caldwell produces estate-grown hillside fruit for its signature wines, “Gold”, “Silver” and “Rocket Science”.  The new varietals collection culminates Caldwell’s work over the last twenty-five years.   

 

g Wine Cellars (Napa Valley) - Enjoy ‘g’ wine and dinner for (2) created by chef, Gary Penir. ‘g’ Wine Cellars is a culmination of friendship, talents, and passion for their grass roots here in the Napa Valley.  It is only fitting that their company be titled “A Ground Floor Production”. The winemaker for ‘g’, Grant Long, is a second generation winemaker and third generation to Napa Valley. His partner Garrett Ahnfeldt owns a vineyard management company and also comes from a wine family of several generations. Their focus is producing small lots of premium wine from different growing regions of the Napa Valley. The combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot found in this area, created a wonderful wine that they are releasing under the name "gi amo". This play on the Italian word "ti amo", meaning "I love", is a tribute to the time and passion they put into every bottle they make.

 

Whetstone Wine Cellars (Napa) – Enjoy a tour, tasting and lunch for (2) with owner Jamey Whetstone, hosted at Laird Family Estates located in the beautiful Oak Knoll Wine region of Napa Valley. Enjoy a barrel tasting, a finished wine tasting of current releases, and lunch provided by Michael Chiarello’s NapaStyle Café, plus one half-case (total) of Whetstone Wine, which will be shipped to your home after your visit. Whetstone is a small boutique producer of vineyard driven wines. Jamey got his start in wine making at Turley Wine Cellars in the summer of 1998 and worked in Burgundy for Domaine Dujac the summer of 2001.
