  • 6 bottles of Napa Valley wine

  • Private tasting and barrel sampling for 6 with winemaker and vintner Gary and Ellen Luchtel at Fortunati Vineyards

At Fortunati Vineyards, share in the experience of producing small lot, boutique wines.

Located in the southern end of Napa Valley in the Oak Knoll District, the vineyard setting offers expansive views of the surrounding Mayacamas and Vaca Mountains with Mt. St. Helena to the north. Just south of Yountville and north of the city of Napa, the Oak Knoll District contains over 18 classic grape varieties, making it Napa Valley’s most diverse nested appellation.

A strong marine influence, foggy mornings and cool summer nights bring cooler temperatures and higher humidity than in other growing areas, thus preserving bright aromas and flavors for which Oak Knoll District grapes and wines are highly celebrated.

Hosted by vintner and winemaker Ellen and Gary Luchtel, you and five guests will enjoy a private tasting as well as barrel samplings of several estate wines.

Gary Luchtel’s winemaking venture began in the early 1990s, first experimenting as a home winemaker, and then in 1999, co-founding Surh Luchtel Cellars in Napa Valley. Planted in 2003, today Fortunati’s handcrafted wines are produced primarily from estate-grown fruit. While believing good wine begins with good grapes, vines are kept healthy and thriving with sustainable farming practices.

Also acquire six 1.5-liter magnums: three 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon and three 2013 Fortivo Red Blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec) of ultra-premium wines for your future enjoyment with family and friends.
