Wine Tasting Itineraries
Sparkle & Shine
Use this route in the Trip PlannerView Map
Begin your day with sparkling wine, get in some breathtaking views, then shine on with estate wines at three wineries just off the Silverado Trail.
Nothing starts a day like sparkling wine at Mumm Napa, where you can enjoy one of their several sparkling wine flights in the salon or on the patio. Mumm Napa has beautiful views across valley vineyards to the Mayacamas Mountains and a fine art photography gallery, including original Ansel Adams prints.
From Mumm, head up in elevation to Rutherford Hill Winery for some stunning Napa Valley views enjoyed with elegant Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Book in advance for their cave tour and barrel tasting in their nearly mile-long cave. Or opt for a picnic lunch: you provide the food, Rutherford Hill provides a table, two bottles of wine, glasses, and a beautiful view.
Finish your day at ZD Wines, known for their Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Plan ahead and book an Eco Vineyard Tour to learn how they take a holistic approach to sustainable farming and winemaking.
All wineries on this itinerary are certified Napa Green because of their dedication to sustainable practices in their winery and/or vineyards. Read more about their environmental and sustainability efforts at napagreen.org.
