Napa Valley vintners, neighbors and friends Elaine & Rick Jones of Jones Family Vineyards and Anne & Chuck McMinn of Vineyard 29 have teamed up to offer this immersion into the Napa experience.

Jones Family Vineyards has been producing estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon since 1996, from two esteemed winemakers, Heidi Peterson Barrett and Thomas Rivers Brown. Vineyard 29 has been making Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel, from their estate vineyards outside St. Helena since 2000, under the direction of Keith Emerson and Phillipe Melka.

The winning party of six will begin the adventure with a luncheon at the home of Elaine and Rick Jones, with breathtaking views of the valley and Jones Family Vineyards below. Orchestrating the meal will be Josh Mitchell, a Napa Valley native who has worked in the kitchens of Auberge du Soleil, Bistro Jeanty, the CIA and Meadowood. The group will enjoy wines from both Vineyard 29 and Jones Family, with some surprises thrown in.

In addition, you’ll enjoy a tasting of the highly acclaimed Vineyard 29 wines at their state of the art winery in St. Helena and enjoy a bike ride on the Napa Valley Vine Trail (bikes provided!) down to Napa where a tasting at CRU at the Annex awaits.

This amazing lot gives six fortunate people a close-up view of the life and lifestyle of summer in the Napa Valley.

INSIDER’S INFO: Experience to be scheduled for a mutually agreeable date in the spring or summer of 2020. The components of this experience can be enjoyed on different days. The wine will be shipped directly to the winning bidder or can be picked up during the visit. Accommodations, airfare and ground transportation are not included.
