Quintessential Quintessa

THE NATURAL SURROUNDINGS and Quintessa wine come together to make an indelible impression in this exceptional experience. A private pavilion awaits you on top of Dragon’s Hill, offering a jewel-like view of the estate — one of the quintessential vistas in Napa Valley.* Your host will share the story of Quintessa and pour barrel samples selected from among the 26 vineyard blocks that eloquently express the diversity of soil and microclimates that bring complexity to every bottle of Quintessa. Next, taste the current vintage, followed by a rare library vintage. The experience concludes with a guided walk through the Quintessa winery and caves.
Approximately 90 minutes, by appointment.
(*Weather permitting, 10-guest maximum)
