Legendary vintners Marilyn and Ren Harris invite you to experience the best of Napa Valley.
Your home base during your visit will be the beautifully appointed guest house at the Harrises’ Paradigm Winery, where you and three friends will enjoy a tasting of hand-crafted wines exclusively from the Harris Family Vineyards. Next, join Raj Patel in sampling some of the highest-scoring, most exclusive vintages and varietals from PATEL’s wine library over a family-style dinner at the world-famous Charlied Palmer Steakhouse in Napa. Sourced from some of the finest vineyards in Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Rutherford and Napa Valley, PATEL Wines are passionately crafted to express the uniqueness of their terroir and exhibit a distinct individual personality. Spend the next day becoming acquainted with master winemaker Julien Fayard’s terroir-driven techniques at Covert Estate in Coombsville, delighting in a private tasting of highly allocated wines produced by Covert Estate, Nicholson Jones and Fayard’s eponymous label. Afterward, the four of you will jaunt over to Somnium for a private vineyard tour and sip on the stunning Somnium Estate Vineyard, hidden along the switchbacks of Howell Mountain at 1300 feet above sea level, just below the Howell Mountain appellation. Latin for “dream,” Somnium is the brainchild of longtime racecar driver and wine enthusiast Danica Patrick, whose 2008 win in the Indy Japan 300 remains the only win by a woman in an IndyCar Series race. And as if all this weren’t enough, cap off your weekend with dinner at The French Laundry, the world-renowned three-Michelin star restaurant led by famed chef Thomas Keller.
