Napa Valley draws countless gourmands and oenophiles each year to its renowned vineyards and tasting rooms. But with more than four-hundred wineries to choose from, how will you plan your Napa group wine tour? Let Dynamic Wine Tours take you from San Francisco to the finest wine country in America—some say, the world!
Here at Dynamic Wine Tours, we know it isn’t just about the wine. Napa Valley is also home to world-class art galleries, innovative architecture, stunning views, and a rich history. Let us customize the vacation of a lifetime for you and your Napa group wine tour!
Just outside the towering redwoods of Calistoga, the Clos Pegase estate showcases sculpture and award-winning architecture on beautifully landscaped grounds. Try their highly-rated wines in the tasting room, where you’ll also enjoy part of the winery’s extensive art collection. Or try the Connoisseur Cave Tour for a closer look at the winery, and to taste special releases. Make sure your group visits the grounds, as the interior and exterior design reflect the work of architect Michael Graves, whose design for the winery won a competition sponsored by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Don’t miss their Renaissance Fountain from the 17th century!
Next, discover the history of Clos du Val, first established in 1972. “The stories of great wineries aren’t written over a few vintages—they are written over decades and generations,” says Clos du Val President, Steve Tamburelli. With a renewed focus on the famous Stag’s Leap district of Napa, the winery recently cut back on production of their famous Cabernet to make sure their product showcased the finest fruit possible from their vineyards, and to preserve the legacy of their label. Their beautiful, historic estate is a not-to-be-missed part of your Napa Valley wine tour.
For unique architecture, look no further than Darioush Vineyards. Owner and proprietor Darioush Khaledi immigrated to the United States from Iran, and has embraced the Persian proverb, “Show your dreams to others.” Entering the winery is like entering a dream, from the wide reflecting pools and towering columns of the exterior to the art, sculpture, and mosaics inside. A variety of tasting options are available for their critically acclaimed wines, including food pairings. You’ll want every excuse to linger in the lush interiors of the tasting room.
Cuvaison offers both delicious wines and sweeping views of Napa Valley’s southern Carneros region. Bring your Napa group wine tour to sample a variety of Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, among other carefully crafted wines. Choose from a number of tasting experiences, like the Single Block flight, which allows you and your group to taste the most intense expressions of the region’s fruit. Or, you can explore the view with a Vineyard Walk, where you’ll learn about winemaking techniques and the winery’s commitment to sustainability.
Dynamic Wine Tours wants to make your Napa group wine tour one you’ll never forget! Let us take you to the best Napa has to offer—the best wines, the most beautiful views, and the most memorable wineries.
