For a $25 fee, you will follow a trained wine professional through one of two vineyards:
Le Petite Clos Vineyard is a fully enclosed, 1.7-acre vineyard. As a guest, learning an appellation, let alone its microclimate may seem daunting. But with this easy-to-follow tour and one-of-a-kind lesson vineyards, each visitor will see, learn of, and literally feel the classic microclimate of famed Napa Valley.
The Pine Ridge Demonstration Vineyard will teach you not only about varietal characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot but also give you insight into the more nuanced world of clonal selections and various root stocks. Only half of an acre, this vineyard sits adjacent to the tasting room and is easily accessible for all visitors.
Each tour traces the development of a bottle of wine – from vines, to grapes, fermentation to barrel aging in the caves. Guests will begin in the vineyard before heading to the Fermentation Cellar and finally end with a private wine and cheese pairing at the very back of the Pine Ridge 4,600 barrel wine cave.
Wine served includes a chilled Viognier or Dijon clone Chardonnay, the Carneros Merlot, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon and the Fortis, the proprietary blend from only Pine Ridge’s finest barrels.
