The Legends of Winemaking Tour


The Legends of Winemaking Tour: Behind the Scenes of the World’s most Eminent Wineries On October 12-19th, 2014 we’ll embark on a true once-in-a-lifetime experience to go beyond the veil of the most unique and historically significant wineries in the world. The Legends of Winemaking Tour is an unforgettable TravelStore Groups wine adventure that will be escorted by acclaimed broadcast journalist, David Wilson, host of the nationally syndicated wine talk show, “Grape Encounters Radio.”

David has developed very special relationships with many of the brightest stars in the wine business.  On this incredible journey, guests will meet some of the amazing people making headlines and setting trends in the world of wine. Tastings will be reserved exclusively for The Legends of Winemaking Tour VIPs that not available through any other tours.

Reserve your spot with TravelStore Groups to explore the catacombs of a true medieval castle, take a private tour of the oldest continuously operating winery in California, and marvel at its incredible restoration. Guests are invited into the the astonishing world of Jean-Charles Boisett, arguably the most colorful and influential winemaker in the world today, and who will personally greet guests upon arrival. Those along for the adventure will stomp grapes at Grgich Hills Estates, and (schedule permitting) meet Michael Grgich, a good friend of David’s and the most important living winemaker in America.  Grgich, now 91, made the Chardonnay that won the Judgment of Paris in 1976 which put California wines into the world spotlight. Sound like wine a lover’s fantasy? TravelStore makes this a reality, and so much more...

Guests will stay in exceptional hotels and feast on Napa and Sonoma’s finest  gourmet cuisine customized just for The Legends of Winemaking Tour attendees.  Other activities including sailing aboard America’s Cup Yacht, seeing first-hand how Champagne is made, and a visit to the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America, which now occupies one of the most historic and breathtaking landmarks in the Country.  TravelStore guests  will receive true VIP treatment with blending their very own wine, and will even be invited to be a guest on an edition of Grape Encounters Radio.

The Legends of Winemaking Tour will be full of surprises, including very special cameos, very special wines and once in a lifetime opportunities that few get to experience.  Explore Napa and Sonoma the way it deserves to be seen, book your space with TravelStore Groups, and you’ll never look at a glass of wine the same way again.
