You and three friends will be in for an experience of a lifetime in the heart of the Mount Veeder AVA. Begin the day with a (curvy!) drive up the mountain, during which you will see the fog slip away and blue skies blaze as you surmount the fog line. Once you arrive at our vineyard property on the steep slopes of Mount Veeder, you'll soon see why this AVA is so unique. With our first bottling having taken place in 1973, Mount Veeder Winery has been making delicious and complex high-altitude wines for over 40 years. Your wine educator will guide your leisurely hike through the vineyards, stopping frequently along the way to share the history of the vineyard, touch the vines, taste the berries (green or ripe!) and enjoy the view of the entire Napa Valley below. As you crest the final hill nearing an altitude of 1,500 feet, you will be welcomed by an al fresco lunch of locally sourced, sustainably-produced delicacies and savories. Spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying a tasting of wines from throughout the Mount Veeder appellation, finding out what makes this place and its wines so special. We'll be featuring a bottle from each of the four decades that we've been producing Mount Veeder wines, as well as multiple wines from our neighbors in this high altitude region. With such an incredible view and enjoyable experience, we may have to drag you off the mountain, as you will never want to leave!
