Domaine Carneros

1240 Duhig Road, Napa, CA * 707-247-0101 *

Perched on a hilltop, surrounded by estate vineyards, sits the magnificent Domaine Carneros winery. This French-style chateau is a replica of Taittinger, the Champagne powerhouse in France. Step inside and you'll marvel at the marble floors and chandeliers of the elegant salon.

If you like, you can savor a tasting of a flight of sparkling wines, while relaxing on the expansive terrace that overlooks rolling hills of the Carneros district. All tastings are seated and guided by a knowledgeable wine professional. You have tasting options here that may include cheese, charcuterie, caviar, and more scrumptious delights.

Hess Persson Estates

4411 Redwood Road, Napa, CA * 707-255-1144 *

Is it more of an art gallery or a winery? That depends on your passion. In 1978, founder Donald Hess combined his passions for art and wine, turning the old Mont La Salle Winery into a modern art museum within the winery. The impressive art collection covers two floors, and features larger-than-life paintings as well as sculpture.

The Hess Collection Winery became known as Hess Persson Estates in 2021, when Sabrina and Timothy Persson took leadership of this family-owned winery. 

Take a tour the contemporary works of art with a knowledgeable guide. One of the experiences here is to explore the estate on an ATV before a wine and culinary pairing. Or step in the tasting room for fine estate Cabernet Sauvignon from the Mount Veeder AVA and beyond. You have several choices for your visit, and all require reservations.


2970 Monticello Road, Napa, CA * 707-255-5280 *

Built completely underground, Jarvis winery is 45,000 square feet of meandering caves. Take the tour and you'll discover how Jarvis' Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Merlot is made.

You'll visit the Cuve Gallery, holding a dozen giant oak vessels used to develop exceptional wines. You can't miss the natural spring waterfall near the end of the tour; more than decorative, this underground spring maintains temperature and humidity ideal for aging wines. Savor a seated tasting of six Jarvis Estate and Reserve Collection wines.

Trefethen Vineyards

1160 Oak Knoll Road, Napa, CA * 707-255-7700 *

Family-owned Trefethen winery has deep roots in Napa. It was built in 1886 by legendary winery architect Hamden McIntyre, who also designed Inglenook, Far Niente, Chateau Montelena, and more. The winery was bought by Eugene and Catherine Trefethen in 1968, whose vision of producing sustainably farmed, estate-grown wines continues today with a third generation of the Trefethen family.

You have tasting and tour options here. Take the journey from grape to glass that begins with a guided walk through the vines, takes you behind the scenes for a look at the winemaking operations, then finishes with a tasting of exquisite estate wines. If you want to skip the tour, you can choose from a selection of flights to sip and savor in either the historic winery or the beautiful courtyard.
