Enjoy an insider’s tour and tasting for two and a 3-night stay in the Caldwell Vineyard Guest House. Your tasting will be with founder John Caldwell or his winemaker, in their 20,000 square foot cave where you will be immersed in his informative, intriguing stories.  Hollywood has already taken note of John Caldwell’s story; how he single-handedly became the first Californian to discover and import rootstocks and grapevine clones from France.  They are now referred to as the “Caldwell Clones” and today, in a Bordeaux-style vineyard, clones are industry standard.  Caldwell produces estate-grown hillside fruit for its signature wines, “Gold”, “Silver” and “Rocket Science”.  The new varietals collection culminates Caldwell’s work over the last 25 years.

Situated on the Caldwell’s private 123-acre estate, the charming 2-bedroom, 1-bath guest cottage offers a truly serene experience with breathtaking views of the Napa Valley from its expansive wrap-around deck. The cottage features two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, one with a double bed) and a fully equipped kitchen.

Neiman Cellars (Napa)

Enjoy an insider’s tasting with owner/winemaker Drew Neiman and a gourmet seasonal lunch for two in the Neiman Room at the top-rated Inn on Randolph. After working under legendary winemaker John Kongsgaard at Newton, Luna, Kongsgaard and Arietta wineries, Drew established Neiman Cellars in 1997 with 3 tons of fruit purchased from the Caldwell Vineyard. Total production is 600 cases of minimal intervention, handcrafted, artisan, small batch wine. Wine critic Robert Parker has called Neiman “brilliant”. He has been featured in FOOD & WINE, Wine Spectator, InStyle and has poured his wine at the James Beard House in NYC.

Private Guided Napa Tour & Transportation with Paul Diaz, Wine Educator

Spend the day with Paul and enjoy VIP treatment as he joins you at the Caldwell Cottage to start your journey through Napa. He will provide transportation and drive you to the Neiman Cellars tasting as well as to another winery that you will select with him based on your preferences.  Paul, a 4th generation “Sonoman”, takes a unique approach to immersing clientele into the culture of the valley with a passion that goes beyond what is in the bottle. A winemaker and a grape grower as well, Paul will educate in all phases of the wine business as few other guides in the valley can.

Designed on 40 lush acres along renowned Ka’anapali Beach, the Hyatt Regency Maui is a tropical oasis. This “fantasy resort” recently completed a $15 million renovation of the guestrooms and Japengo restaurant. The resort offers a multitude of activities including championship golf, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba-diving, tennis, and windsurfing, all within steps of the resort. Oceanfront massage, manicures and pedicures, an astronomy program, exotic wildlife tours, art and garden tours, hula lessons, lei making, aqua-aerobic classes, and luxury catamaran sails are just some of the resort’s optional activities. The half-acre pool is divided by spectacular waterfalls and a lava rock grotto and a 150-foot enclosed lava tube waterslide. The Royal Kaanapali golf courses, including the North Course rated “Best on Maui” by Connoisseur and designed by architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., offers spectacular views of the islands, beaches and humpback whales.

There’s daily live Hawaiian entertainment at the Elegant Dive pool bar, and families can “hulacise” or learn to make leis.

Whistler Blackcomb announced that the new lift-accessed area in the high alpine of Whistler Mountain will be crowned the Symphony Amphitheatre to reflect its spectacular natural amphitheater-like terrain. The area will be accessed by the newly named Symphony Express. The Symphony Amphitheatre brings to the forefront one of Whistler Mountain’s favorite in-bounds backcountry experiences. Long referred to by locals as the Musical Bumps, Piccolo, Symphony and Flute Bowls are the encore to Whistler’s Harmony Bowl, but until now have been reserved for those willing to hike for their turns. This winter, the Symphony Express will provide access to over 1,000 acres of this intermediate and advanced terrain.

The zone’s new name was inspired by the area’s natural theater-like setting with its unmatched views, vast open bowls, deep snow and gladed finales. Following the theme, the area also features new run names such as Rhapsody Bowl, Adagio, Founders’ Run, Staccato Glades, Glissando Glades, Encore Ridge, Flute Bowl, North Flute Bowl and Hidden Chute. These new trails add to the established runs in the region such as Burnt Stew Trail, Symphony Bowl, Sun Bowl, Harvey’s Harrow, Robertson’s Run and Crescendo.
