  • Eagles Trace
    Eagles Trace's vintage-producing veterans lead parties of up to eight connoisseurs into the depths of their winery, housed within the stone-hewn walls of an underground cave. During the 90- to 120-minute tour, guests taste up to four varieties from the collection, swirling and sniffing their sample before determining whether they got the merlot, the cabernet sauvignon, or cough syrup. Groups then enter into the caves to taste one of the winery's creations straight from the barrel, where it is kept at a constant 60 degrees–62 degrees by the cool subterranean air. At the tour's conclusion, visitors adopt their favorite bottle to take home, such as the cuddly 2005 Latitude 38, a bordeaux-style blend that is house-trained and boasts flavors of blackberries, black currant, and plums.

  • Spann Vineyards Tasting Room
    With 50+ years of combined experience with some of the world’s most renowned winemakers, Peter and Betsy Spann founded their winery in 2001. Their steeply terraced mountainside vineyard yields small amounts of richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Sangiovese grapes. Just as jazz is an interpretation of classical music, Spann Vineyard blends are interpretations of classical wine styles, such as the white wines Yin-Yang (Chardonnay/Viognier blend) and the red wines OMG (Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend), The Powerlifter (Petite Sirah/Grenache/Syrah/ Cinsault blend) and Mo Jo (Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah/Merlot blend).

Visitors to the winery’s fancy tasting room have the chance to sample five of Honig’s delicious wines. Sommeliers and thirsty Langoliers can sniff, taste, and carefully dissect the potable properties of the Rutherford sauvignon blanc, a 2008 vintage that starts fruity and ends with a crisp, minerally finish, as well as the 2006 Honig cabernet sauvignon, which features blackberry, cherry, and plum flavors developed over 18 months in an American oak barrel, just like old-timey cowboy hobos. The remaining three samples include the 2008 Honig Late Harvest sauvignon blanc—a refreshing dessert wine aged in new French oak barrels with lemony and grapefruity hints—Honig’s single vineyard cab, and a library selection.

  • Mumm Napa
    Five Things to Know About Mumm Napa Mumm Napa knows that every moment is worth celebrating, and their elegant vineyard reflects that mentality. With its sun-dappled terrace inviting visitors to sip on cool sparkling wines under the shade of a nearly 200-year-old oak tree, an afternoon can go from ordinary to extraordinary. Tours and tastings provide an informative introduction, but read on to learn more about what makes Mumm Napa worth a visit: Though bubbly is where it’s at, Mumm doesn’t neglect other members of the wine family. In addition to their award-winning sparkling wines, they also include rosé, chardonnay, and pinot noir in their repertoire. Mumm Napa’s champagne has true French roots. The Mumm brothers founded the first Mumm vineyard in 1827 in the Champagne region of France. It didn’t move to California until 1983. They can’t accommodate weddings, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate. Though county ordinances prohibit weddings, they still have four different event spaces suited for parties of just 20 or nearly 200. The winery celebrates the arts almost as much as its wine. The onsite gallery has featured works by Graham Nash (of Crosby, Stills, and Nash) and legendary photographer Ansel Adams. Club members can share their love of wine all year long. Perks include discounts on bottles and merch
