High-Altitude Napa Valley
The Napa Valley is known for it's opulence and decadence. But just wait until you taste the grapes from the mountain regions of Napa. Here grapes ripen above the fog line of the valley below and high altitude makes for cool nights that keep the berries small and concentrate the flavours even more.

Frequently asked questions...

Yes, of course you may invite more than 12 people. There will be an extra charge for this as we will require more bottles of wine. Please choose a theme and fill out the number of guests you intend to have over.  This way I can send you a quote for the adjusted price.

I’ll bring one extra bottle of wine to replace a corked/ off bottle. However, since we cannot predict which wine may be corked/ off, it will be a new wine that is not on our slated agenda. The wine will fit the wine theme of the evening.

The only time when we cannot replace wine for an event is when a aged wine is choosen for the theme (8+ years old, for example). This is simply a risk when purchasing cellared wine

During discussions, you are free to make as many changes to the event plan as you see fit. However, payment is due 11 days before the event. At that time, no more changes will be allowed.

Payment is due in full 11 days before the event.

If payment is not made in full 11 days prior to the event, it will be cancelled.

We know how busy things can get! So we’ll send you a reminder before the due date so this doesn’t happen.
