Wine Gift Set Includes:
- Tasting room passes for each of the three wineries for up to four people, valid through December 31, 2013. Appointments may be required, details are included on the enclosed passes.
- Antica Cabernet Sauvignon:
The Antica wine estate is located on a high plain in the eastern mountains of the celebrated Napa Valley. Its hilly terrain, rocky soils, high elevations and beautiful landscape create, above all, an estate ideal for winegrowing. ANTICA is a symbol for Antinori California and expresses in Italian the family's passion for winemaking passed along 26 generations.
- Conn Creek Anthology:
Conn Creek was founded in 1973 and immediately established itself as one of Napa Valley's premier Cabernet houses with the release of its 1974 Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery name comes from its location, next to Conn Creek near the Rutherford Crossroad that connects the Silverado Trail with Highway 29. Conn Creek specializes in limited production Bordeaux varietal wines exclusively from Napa Valley's best vineyards. Sourcing grapes from most of Napa Valley's 14 appellations provides the winemaker with many alternatives when it comes to composing the pinnacle wine blend, Anthology.
- Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon:
Founded in 1970 by the Warren Winiarski family, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is considered a Napa Valley first growth producing world-renowned Cabernet Sauvignon from its historic vineyards. The winery first brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley when its 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the now famous 1976 Paris Tasting (also known as the "Judgment of Paris") by besting some of the most celebrated wines of Bordeaux. The winery is also recognized for its Napa Valley collection of wines including ARTEMIS Cabernet Sauvignon, which provides a strong link to the origin, style, and character of the limited-production estate wines, but is produced in quantities that make it more accessible.
