Have I mentioned how much I love a Napa Getaway? I love it. I mean, I really love it.
Do you know what would make the trip better?
If you joined me.
And to be honest, wouldn’t that make it better for you, too?! I’m taking an intimate group to my favorite places – there’s only six spots available. Treat yourself to a five day, four night excursion in Napa Valley this December. Experience the wonder and charm of wine country with complete ease. Each day a magnificent and magical itinerary has been perfectly planned for you – one of relaxation, good food and wine.
So here’s your invitation! Will you join me?
Day One, Day of Arrival
Your package includes accommodations, tastings, and an exclusive private dinner. On your first night, arrive at your leisure and enjoy the grounds of your exclusive property. Arrive early to enjoy and relax. There’s easy access to spa time, golfing, lounging by the pool or enjoy the on-site tasting room in the wine cave.
Settle in and get ready for a few days of pure bliss. We’ll join local vineyard owners for a private dinner – we’ll have them all to ourselves for education and entertainment.
Start your day in an exclusive boutique winery specializing in Trousseau Gris, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and delightful red blends. This private tasting experience will give your Napa getaway a great start with stunning wines. Next stop offers a fun and educational wine and cheese pairing among amazing architecture and art. You’ll continue your day with barrel tasting and a cave tour, followed up with a port and chocolate experience.
Local, organic, farm-fresh fare will be waiting for you at our hand-picked dinner restaurant of choice!
Deep in the heart of St. Helena, you’ll visit this mountaintop estate and experience a variety of world-class wines from Viognier to Cabernet Sauvignon. There’s something for everyone. We’ll visit a tucked away vineyard with a quaint picnic area for tasting and lunch. We will then head over to a small tasting room where you’ll find boutique wines at remarkably affordable prices, and enjoy the shops and tasting rooms nearby.
For dinner, enjoy a wine country classic, pairing contemporary French inspired California cuisine with a comprehensive collection of the valley’s finest wine growers and producers.
First up is one of my favorite stops where you’ll learn about the terroir of Northern California and blend your own bottle of wine. You’ll taste from the barrel, and select your own perfect blend to create a take home treasure. Impress your friends with your wine-making abilities when you get home and open up this one of a kind delight! We’ll do a vineyard tour with educational overview and make one last tasting stop for the day.
We’ll have dinner as a group at a nearby winery with a rustic warm Italian ambiance located in the heart of the Napa Valley, serving fresh Italian and French style cuisine.
Day Five, Day of Departure
Your final winery of the trip will delight your senses with a wine and cheese pairing in Coombsville AVA. A lovely wine and cheese pairing will walk you through some of the most exclusive wines in Napa Valley. You’ll end your vacation feeling educated, pampered, and completely relaxed. We’ll be happy to pack and ship up to two cases of wine for you. Arrangements can be made for additional cases to be shipped for a small fee.
We’ll wrap up our trip and head to the airport dreaming of the wonderful wine deliveries coming to our houses over the next few weeks and planning for our next adventure together…. (I’m thinking Anderson Valley and Mendocino…..)
Here’s what others have to say about For Love of the Vine:
I had such a great time on my wine tour in Napa! I loved the wineries that For Love of the Vine chose for our itinerary. Although I’ve visited Napa before, Beth chose wineries I would never have even known of and I was blown away by the amazing wine and breathtaking properties. We toured beautiful gardens, took a private, VIP tour where I learned so much about wine and the history of the winery from our guide. My favorite part was sampling the wine straight from one of the barrels; I had never done that before! I loved our picnic from a local grocery. It was the perfect treat to fuel up for our next winery. The whole day felt like such a fun and relaxing vacation, and I can’t wait to come back for another tour! Beth went out of her way to make me feel like a VIP and give me the best experience I could have asked for in Napa. – Melissa H., San Jose, CA
My trip to Napa was my very first time there, and honestly, I wouldn’t know where to start if I was doing it on my own. Thank goodness for Beth and ‘For Love of the Vine.’ She completely oversaw the entire trip, from the private tastings at the wineries to dinner at the best restaurants. It was first class, 5-star all the way, and I felt like a VIP. She’s a pro, and extremely knowledgeable on everything Napa. I won’t go back without her! – Janet V., Detroit, MI
I wish I had known Beth on my first trip to Napa. Due to my busy schedule, I left the planning up to friends. Unfortunately, I was not super happy with the wine tours, our private transportation, and I felt I had a sub-par first wine country experience. I wish I had known Beth then, her passion, knowledge, and experience of Napa Valley and Sonoma would have saved me hours of my time and lots of wasted money. Can’t wait to have her plan my next trip to Sonoma and Napa!
