Spend two magical nights at a private vineyard just outside Calistoga at the Harris Estate Vineyard. Stay in a beautiful one bedroom, one bathroom 1880 restored Victorian guest cottage on the 48-acre property that was once home to a private boy’s school. Enjoy a private tour and tasting of this three estate-grown vineyard planted in diverse terrain and experience the vineyard’s wonder and its way of life with the team at the Harris Estate Vineyard. The wines from this vineyard are crafted by winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown and perfectly reflect the terroir of the Franz Valley area.
This package comes with two bottles of wine produced by the vineyard to give you a sample of their excellent wine.
Bottle 1: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Treva's Vineyard is by far the most reticent of the three 2011s I tasted from Harris. Intensely mineral and savory, the 2011 boasts huge fruit and equally imposing tannins that are going to require patience. Iron, graphite, smoke and licorice flow through to the huge, structured finish. The Treva's is a wine for the cellar, there is little doubt about that. This is another drop-dead gorgeous showing from Harris and winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown. There is plenty of Diamond Mountain character here. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031." - 350 cases produced - 96 points, Antonio Galloni
Bottle 2: 2009 Harris Estate Indulgence: Sourced from the Calistoga AVA, this beautiful fruit forward Cabernet has a brightness and full-bodied balance that we have come to expect from the hand of Thomas Brown. This wine is versatile for easy sipping and pairs well with a variety of foods. The acid and tannic structures reflect the style of our estate grown wines in an approachable manner and can be enjoyed for years to come.
