Mike Bee and Jim Peterson first teamed up in the early 90s, working side by side to resolve legal cases at their firm in Charleston, West Virginia. At the end of the workday, the two would often uncork a bottle of wine, discussing the characteristics of their favorite bottles in between sips. While attending a law convention in 1994, they toured the wineries of Napa Valley, and the experience proved inspirational. They enlisted the help of veteran winemaker Ray Coursen, and Falcor Winery was born.
In order to achieve an exceptionally balanced taste, the Falcor team selects grapes harvested at peak ripeness, well before the expiration dates spelled out by their vines. This fastidiousness has paid off. Their 2005 Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon earned a spot on Wine & Spirits’ Year’s Best Cabernet & Blends list in 2010. This wine and others can be enjoyed in the winery's tasting salon, where award-winning chef Chay Woerz prepares menus and tastings that incorporate smoked meats and cheeses and wine-infused chocolate.
Helmed by founder Tony Soter and current vintaging viceroy Jon Priest, Etude practices sustainable growing, yielding carefully crafted wines from a grape harvest that includes 10 rare heirloom varieties. During the tasting, you'll get to sample three different courses of two wines each, and each drink duo is paired with a succulent small plate hand-selected by Chef Rodger Babel. Get to know a local grilled eggplant and his lemon cured goat cheese and Marcona almond friends before devouring them with a Carneros chardonnay and rose pinot noir. Feast fiendishly on the adoring eyes of your tasting partner as you feed each other from plates of smoked Sonoma rabbit and braised short rib terrine, while sipping Deer Camp pinot noir and a Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon from each other’s hats.
Napa Valley Adventure Boot Camp owner Jeff Larson and his team of trainers know all about breaking a sweat. Each day, they challenge their students with fitness classes that string cardio and resistance workouts into a challenging chain of intense exercise. They also understand that water and electronics don't mix—instead of hosting their classes inside gyms filled with treadmills and stationary bikes, they stage their regimens outdoors, fortifying their workouts with rejuvenating sunrays and the encouraging shrieks of onlooking robins.

Walking onto one of Scandia Family Center’s two award-winning golf courses feels like traversing a quaint corner of the Scandinavian countryside. Shingled houses and windmills dot the landscape, which kids of all ages eye from atop a rock wall or while zooming past in a go-kart or bumper boat. Inside, toddlers climb, crawl, and slide in the three floors of the clubhouse, and up to 25 players take aim in the Lasertron-designed laser-tag facility. Before leaving, kids and adults face off at more than 200 arcade games or grab a bite to eat at the snack bar.
