Savor the beauty of Napa Valley, sip excellent wines, and then take home/or ship a couple of cases to remember the day. At Staglin Family Vineyards, you will be greeted with a glass of Chardonnay and welcomed with gracious hospitality by one of the family members. Then, enjoy views of Staglin’s beautiful estate as you are taken on a tour of the vineyards. Finally, taste their world-class Napa Valley wines.
Our recommendation for lunch is Alex’s Italian Restaurant. After a lovely meal, then have your driver (call us for suggestions!) whisk you off for a tour/tasting at Quintessa.
Special Note: Reservations are required for this wine experience and is specifically recommended for serious wine buyers.
