    CSSA Napa Wine Experience

    Wednesday, May 8, 2019 – 12:00am to 5:00pm

    Registration – $150

    $150 per person includes transportation, private tastings, gourmet lunch and knowledge & entertainment from a Certified Sommelier & Host.

    Space is limited to 40 people – reserve your wine tour experience today!

    Be taken away for a unique wine tasting tour and experience with Host and Certified Sommelier, John Burdick, of Burdick Vineyard Tours. John has over 20 years of experience in the wine and hospitality industry in Napa & Sonoma, and specializes in creating memorable experiences for intimate groups of wine enthusiasts.

    The tour will depart in a private motor coach from Silverado Country Club at 12:00 PM and will arrive at Andretti Winery. This is the perfect way to start our day in Wine Country…at an Italian Villa tasting Tuscan style wines with beautiful views. Mario Andretti, owner and the world’s most famous race car driver brings his heritage to the Napa Valley in a big way. At his gorgeous estate, the group will enjoy a Tour and Tasting and a lovely Al Fresco lunch spread prepared by the villa’s in-house chef. Lunch will include fresh baked rolls, premium meats and cheeses, fresh fruit, pesto tortellini salad, kettle chips and fresh baked cookies. There is no better way to begin the journey in Napa!

    After departing Andretti Winery, the tour will continue to Trefethen Family Vineyards. Constructed in 1886 by a Scottish sea captain, Hamden McIntyre, this winery was originally known as Eshcol. McIntyre designed it as a gravity-flow system: a horse-drawn winch brought grapes to the third floor of the three-story structure for crushing; gravity carried the juice to the second floor for fermenting; and, eventually, the wine descended to the first floor for aging. Eshcol was among a number of wineries McIntyre designed during this period; the others were Greystone (now The Culinary Institute of America), Far Niente and Inglenook. Trefethen is a winery with a great deal of history and tradition of producing some of the most fabulous wine coming out of Napa.

    Space is limited for this experience, so please be sure to book your space early!
