Tasting and Retail Sales of Leading Regional Wines in Unique Subterranean Space
Napa, Calif. -- The anticipated April 15th opening of The Estate Wine Bar will be a major milestone for The Meritage Resort at Napa. Not only is this 20,000 square foot cave one of the most ambitious subterranean projects ever conceived in the Napa Valley, it also represents a unique collaboration that will allow guests to taste their way through a diverse selection of California wines in a single location.
The handsomely appointed facility will offer tasting, education and retail sales from noted regional producers, including: Brutocao Cellars, Oakville Ranch, Schramsberg, Tobin James and Trinitas Cellars.
“Partnering with such exceptional labels creates a very special tasting experience for guests of the Resort,” says Sean Dempsey, Director of Food & Beverage for The Meritage Resort. “Being able to offer a variety of wines from California’s famed wine growing regions in a single location is a terrific way to help visitors who are new to wine better understand the concept of terroir; and wine savvy guests will certainly appreciate the variety and caliber of the wines being offered.”
The Meritage Resort at Napa’s Estate Cave is among the few distinctive private entertaining venues available for parties and events in the Napa Valley. Featuring exquisite custom masonry, tile work, and wrought iron fixtures, The Estate Cave has the feeling of a world class wine estate storage facility, but offers many modern entertaining conveniences not generally available in a working wine cave.
In addition to the Wine Bar and event space, The Estate Cave houses the 9,000 square foot, full-service Spa Terra.
The Estate Wine Bar is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for sampling and retail sales of featured wines. Flight tastings will range from $9 to $19 dollars.
Built on an eight-acre private vineyard at the southern tip of Napa Valley, near where the counties of Napa and Sonoma meet, The Meritage Resort and adjacent Vino Bello Resort opened in July 2006. From the complimentary bottle of wine at check-in, to gourmet cuisine at the on-site Siena restaurant, to luxurious, Tuscan-inspired guest rooms and suites, The Meritage Resort exudes elegance. Guests of Vino Bello Resort, featuring 116 vacation ownership suites often available on a nightly basis, share all resort amenities.
