Tasting Experiences

Estate Tasting

Visits are privately hosted and tailored for each guest. First, take a walk to a scenic overlook of the property, with sweeping views of the vineyards encompassing the Rutherford appellation.*

Guests are then guided through the Quintessa winery and caves to learn more about our winemaking process. The experience culminates in a relaxed sit-down tasting at a private table showcasing the current release of 2015 Quintessa as well as library vintages of Quintessa.

Approximately 90 minutes, by appointment.
$75 per guest

Quintessential Quintessa

The natural surroundings and Quintessa wine come together to make an indelible impression in this exceptional experience. A private pavilion awaits you on top of Dragon’s Hill, offering a jewel-like view of the estate — one of the quintessential vistas in Napa Valley.*

Your host will share the story of Quintessa and pour barrel samples selected from among the 26 vineyard blocks that eloquently express the diversity of soil and microclimates that bring complexity to every bottle of Quintessa. Next, taste the current vintage, followed by a rare library vintage. The experience concludes with a guided walk through the Quintessa winery and caves.

Approximately 90 minutes, by appointment.
$125 per guest. 
Due to limited reservations, please call directly to book this experience.
