A legacy is handed down over time, through family and tradition. And lots and lots of wine. Charles Krug. V. Sattui. The legacy of these Italian families represents a combined winemaking history of more than 200 years. And some very fine vintages. Some say this is where it all began. And this is where your journey begins.*
We encourage our guests to wear comfortable shoes since some walking is necessary, especially during the tasting portion of your experience.
Full Day Winery tastings are an indulgence start to finish. Elegant interiors. Gleaming brass. Sleek fixtures. Smooth marble. The train car, rattling at an easy pace through extraordinary Napa countryside. Sweeping rows of vines, some there since 1868.
But first, sparkling wine. Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, potato rosti, and frisee salad with maple glazed bacon lardons and an intimate group of happy eager travelers.
