Premiere Napa Valley Wines
Situated atop Howell Mountain, 1,660 feet above Napa Valley, Cold Springs Vineyard is farmed by one of California's most sought after vineyard managers and his good friend, Jim Barbour. It's a gem of a location with soil profiles, slopes, and elevation to make even the most stoic wine geek swoon. Above the fog line, the south-westerly slopes of the team's favored blocks are graced with cool morning sun and protected from the intense afternoon heat. The terroir of our Cold Springs Vineyard, nestled atop Howell Mountain, continues to provide the foundation for the palate and aromas we love so much for Aloft's single-vineyard, single-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our Makers' Story
We offer four experiences at our beautiful custom crush facility, Brasswood Estate, located in the heart of Napa Valley. Each experience is personally hosted by a Mondavi Sister, or two, depending on personal calendars.
Offered at $100.00 per person and includes a tasting of our current available releases. At the moment, our current releases include our 2020 Aloft Chenin Blanc, 2017 Aloft Cabernet Sauvignon, and our 2017 Dark Matter Limitless Cabernet Sauvignon. The vintages poured will change as we release the newest vintage of each wine. Available Mondy - Saturday only.
Cheers to the Future & Cheese
Private tasting, Barrel Tasting, and Cheese Platter are offered at $125 per person. This tasting also includes current available vintages of Aloft and Dark Matter and a barrel sample of one future vintage. Due to COVID, we are currently not walking guests through the winery and caves, but we will pull a barrel sample to taste during your visit. The cheese selected for this experience is perfectly paired with each wine and was curated by our winemaker, and sister, Angelina. Available Monday - Saturday only.
Our four-course lunch paired with our current releases of Aloft and Dark Matter wines is offered at $200 per person. Our seasonal menu is curated by Angelina and Brasswood's Executive Chef and includes unique dishes to perfectly complement the wines being showcased. To conclude this lunch, dessert is paired with one Library vintage, which will be offered for purchase that day only. Lunch fees cannot be applied toward the purchase of wine. Available Monday - Friday only.
Elevated Sisters’ Lunch
One of our favorite experiences is our four-course lunch paired with our current releases of Aloft and Dark Matter wines offered at $250 per person. For this experience, we have partnered with Caviar Co., a sisters-owned caviar company from San Francisco, and Brasswood's Executive Chef to offer a high-end, unique Napa Valley experience using fresh ingredients sourced from our neighbors. Angelina Mondavi worked closely with each to curate unique dishes to perfectly complement the wines being showcased. To conclude this lunch, dessert is paired with one Library vintage, which will be offered for purchase that day only. Lunch fees cannot be applied toward the purchase of wine. Available Monday - Friday only.
