A $ 550 flight over the vineyards of Carneros in a vintage airplane. Glasses of champagne on a limousine ride to a vineyard, from $ 850. Private tutorials with Wine Country chefs on how to pull mozzarella. And for an additional $ 750, Baccarat crystal glasses engraved with your name.
These are just a few of the extravagant wine tasting experiences available in Napa Valley right now – and the demand for them, winemakers report, has never been higher. Some wineries are adding tastings that cost $ 500 or more, and concierges that charge over $ 1,000 per day hire to meet the demands of people wanting unique and private experiences.
