HALL Wines, a premier portfolio of luxury wineries and tasting rooms located in Napa Valley, has announced the launch of a luxurious Appellation Exploration experience at its Rutherford Winery. The premier offering will provide guests an unparalleled opportunity to isolate and experience the quality and variety of Napa Valley appellations and will serve as one of the most lucrative tour and tasting experiences in the Napa Valley.
“Everything other than appellation is constant – the vintage, winemaking team, winemaking approach, technology in the vineyard and cellar; the only variable to experience is the appellation,” says President Mike Reynolds.
Set in the Rutherford hills overlooking Napa Valley, HALL’s Appellation Exploration includes a one-of-a-kind wine tasting showcasing the effects of terroir, climate and elevation and a private tour through the acclaimed 100-point Sacrashe vineyard. All wines are paired with seasonal food prepared by local notable chefs.
The experience begins with a tour of HALL Rutherford’s state-of-the-art production facility. Guests are then escorted through the cave’s tunnel for a barrel tasting of HALL’s flagship Kathryn Hall Cabernet Sauvignon wine surrounded by reclaimed bricks and limestone from Austria’s Hapsburg era dating back to the 14th-20th centuries. Guest are then guided to the spectacular Chandelier Cave adorned with dazzling Swarovski crystals for a seated tasting of four appellation designated wines where guests will have the rare opportunity to purchase these wines based on an allocation and sign up for HALL’s coveted wine club. The 90-minute experience also showcases owner’s Craig and Kathryn Hall’s contemporary art collection curated by Virginia Shore, Shore Art Advisory. This new offering books months in advance and is $125pp.
