Great wines are about distinctiveness. Agustin and Valeria Huneeus, proprietors of Quintessa, knew that unleashing the terroir of this special site would result in a wine like no other.
Since the very first harvest over 20 years ago, Quintessa – an estate blend that can include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenère - has been a unique expression of a singular property, a wine of finesse, harmony and complexity.
Visits are privately hosted and tailored for each guest. First, take a walk through the vineyards behind the winery on the way to a scenic overlook of the property, with sweeping views of the land encompassing the Rutherford appellation. Guests are then guided through the Quintessa winery and caves to learn more about our winemaking process. The experience culminates in a relaxed sit-down tasting at a private table showcasing the current release and library vintages of Quintessa. Tastings are approximately 90 minutes, by appointment and $75 per guest. For reservations, please call (707) 286-2730. www.quintessa.com
