Enjoy great wine paired with fantastic viewings of amazing art, architecture and vineyards.
Tucked in the cool Los Carneros sub-appellation is Etude Wines, where you can taste Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. If you love Pinot Noir, reserve the Study of Pinot Noir experience and compare and contrast six Pinots from distinct growing regions.
From here, go west to Artesa Vineyards & Winery. As you drive through the undulating vineyards, take note of Artesa's unique architecture. It was specifically designed to blend into the hillside landscape, from which you can experience spectacular views across the vineyards to San Pablo Bay. On a clear day, you can see all the way to San Francisco. And if you book ahead, Artesa has several reservation-only wine and food pairings to choose from.
Next, head up Mount Veeder to visit The Hess Collection tucked away in a redwood forest. Not only does Hess have a wine to satisfy almost every palate, including mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon from the volcanic slopes surrounding the winery, but they also have their own art museum. Make sure to allow enough time to enjoy both the wine and the art.
