Specialty Tour: Chardonnay Country
We call them our Specialty Tours because they are not like the custom tours that we “personalize” according to our clients’ responses to our Wine Lover’s Personalization Tour. Rather they are focused primarily on our clients’ favorite varietal wines.
We’ve learned over the past 10 years that most wine drinkers also love to discover new wines in their favorite varietal or wine category. They typically may not find these new wines at their wine store, so we give them the option to discover them on tour.
Actually, it all started when a group of 6 women answered our Wine Lover’s Personalization Survey by stating they only wanted to try “sparkling” wines! And now 5 tours later they are constantly adding new sparklers to their portfolio of favorites.
With few exceptions, most wineries that focus on a specific varietal and wine also offer other excellent wines that they produce and are also proud of…and of course you may experience those tasting options too!
This Chardonnay Country Specialty Tour includes accommodation at 4+ or 5 Star hotel resorts, 5 Star and Michelin-starred dinner dining experiences and lunches that include a multi-course wine and gourmet tapas pairing and may even include a winery picnic depending on season and weather, at least one artisan visit, and up to 4 wine tasting per day from the options below as well as possible inclusion of one or more wineries not on our list that you wish to discover.
Chardonnay Wineries: Sonoma Cutrer, Ferrari Carano, Jordan, Ramey, Coppola, Patz & Hall, La Crema, and William Selyem, Mayo Family, Stony Hill, Rombauer, Lewis Ellers, Newton, Alpha Omega, Cakebread, Pahlmeyer plus lots more choices in both Sonoma and Napa and of course…Chateau Montelena, which made American Chardonnays more than respectable with their extraordinary victory in the 1976 Judgment of Paris competition between the best white burgundy (chardonnay) wines of France and America!
