  • 12 bottles of Napa Valley wine

  • Private winemaker’s luncheon for up to 8 guests at Sleeping Lady Vineyard inside BRION's 19th-century barn 

BRION is about crafting single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from renowned terroirs, with a team of winemakers whose work has garnered high praise from influential critics.

Founder Brion Wise determined that place, a particularly memorable place, was behind each successful wine he encountered. Every wine that intrigued him inevitably led to stone and soil and a working tradition. 

This offering showcases their Napa Valley wines from the inaugural 2014 release: three magnums, each representing single vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons from the Oakville, Sleeping Lady and Caldwell vineyards presented in a stylized, inaugural collector's edition wooden box.

Their Caldwell Vineyard wines are 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted by winemakers Mark Herold and Massimo Monticelli. These wines are massive, compelling, and pure; blue-black fruits with supple tannins and a voluptuous finish.

Their Oakville wines are also 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted by Mark. These wines are round, succulent, spice box and earth, cassis, mouthcoating and plush.

Our Sleeping Lady Vineyard wines are 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted by Mark and Massimo. These wines are intense, structured, refined; black and purple fruits, precise, complete. The signature of the Lady is depth, aromatics and perfume.

In addition to these rare wines, you're invited to join Brion and winemaker Julien Fayard for dinner in their new winery at the Sleeping Lady Vineyard. Guests will taste through the collection of BRION wines and dine at the new winery, fashioned from a classic 19th-century barn situated at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains and on the edge of the Sleeping Lady Vineyard.

Rolling out below and beyond is a vista encompassing the vineyards of Napa Valley and the picturesque Vaca Mountain range in the distance. If your attention can be turned from the view, you'll encounter a multicourse meal crafted by Brion himself, highlighting the bounty of the region paired with the wines of BRION. An unforgettable, intimate evening!
