Tucked in the cool Carneros is Etude Wines, where you can try Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, from both surrounding vineyards and properties in Coombsville, Oakville and Rutherford. If you love Pinot Noir and want to learn more about this delicate grape, book the Private Tailored experience and select the Pinot option. You can also select a Cabernet Focus or a mix of their extensive portfolio – the choice is yours! Etude uses recycled water for landscape irrigation and there is an employee garden and fruit trees, with some of the produce donated to the Napa Food Bank. Etude recycles and composts more than 90% of their waste and has been recognized with several Napa County Recycling Leadership Awards.
Enjoy a seated tasting of bubbles on the Domaine Carneros patio or in their grand salon. Book a tour of their estate to soak in some views at the stunning sparkling wine Château. If you love sparkling wines and vineyard vistas nothing about this experience will disappoint. Domaine Carneros was honored with the 2019 California Sustainable Winegrowing Green Medal award for their innovative Business practices. They reclaim 2/3 of their water for irrigation; through a unique packaging recycling program they are able to reuse 90% of onsite packaging; and as of 2019 they offset 100% of the carbon footprint of their wine shipments. “We will never stop striving to make better wines with a lighter, more sustainable footprint,” says Winemaker TJ Evans.
