Carlton McCoy, the renowned master sommelier and visionary behind some of Napa Valley’s most critically acclaimed vineyards, has invited a Robb Report reader and nine of their guests to join him on a curated wine tour and tasting experience.
McCoy, the charismatic star of CNN’s culinary travel show Nomad, will personally guide the all-access one-day excursion to four historic Napa wineries: Heitz Cellar, Stony Hill, Burgess and Ink Grade, all of which he runs as CEO of Lawrence Wine Estates. McCoy has masterminded an ambitious program of legacy-vineyard acquisitions over the past four years. He is assisted in his mission to blast fresh air into some of Napa’s fustier corners by a diverse and youthful team, who share a commitment to integrity and purity in winemaking.
On the tour, which can take place any time from spring 2023, guests will be treated to barrel tastings with winemakers and a private lunch with wine pairings at Burgess, before ending the day on the Oak Terrace at Stony Hill, where winemaker Jaimee Motley will host a private dinner overlooking the estate’s historic vineyards. Each guest will take home quite the party favour: a 12-bottle collection of rare wines, selected by McCoy valued at over US$5,000.
