Enjoy Special Holiday Experiences at Napa’s Trefethen Family Vineyards

Desiring a wine country escape? Napa Valley’s Trefethen Family Vineyards has launched two new, private - and safe - holiday-focused experiences to help set a festive mood. With each, Trefethen winery chef Chris Kennedy shares Trefethen’s iconic wine country hospitality, while also inspiring home cooks.

Kennedy’s Taste the Estate menus will be offered daily at 11am and 3pm during two limited runs, from November 20th through November 30th and again December 20th through December 31st. Taste the Estate is Trefethen’s quintessential wine and culinary experience, highlighting the fantastic synergy of great wine and great food at a price of $90 per person. Guests will enjoy five of Trefethen’s finest wines paired with delicious, holiday-inspired bites crafted by Chef Kennedy.

A second experience, Twilight at Trefethen, is offered as the ultimate private experience. Groups of six or fewer will have the Trefethen estate all to themselves for a private tour followed by a seated tasting with the full Taste the Estate menu described above. There is only one table each night, offered every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at 5:30pm, at a price of $150 per person. This is the perfect Napa Valley experience for those seeking to celebrate a special occasion, or for those simply desiring to relax in a fully private and serene wine country setting.

One of Napa’s pioneering wineries, Trefethen Family Vineyards was founded in 1968 by Janet and John Trefethen. More than five decades later, this venerable Oak Knoll winery remains family-owned and committed to the craft of producing 100% estate-grown wines.
