“I enjoy wine and have been a regular traveler to wine growing regions around the world.  I thought I knew the Napa Valley well after traveling there consistently most of my life.  In January of 2014 my wife and I visited Napa with some friends on an itinerary designed and led by Hayley Cogill that showed me a new way to look at the region.  We started in Carneros where Hayley discussed the alluvial soils and tasted the wines that benefited most from it.  We attended a blending where we could taste Cabernet from all of the 15 soils of the valley.  After the tasting our group decided that we were especially enjoying the Howell Mountain wines.  The next day we toured Howell Mountain exclusively as expected guests of wineries that Hayley had called the previous day.  We returned with wines for our cellar that we really understood and could explain to our guests when serving them at home.  The accommodations, restaurants and transportation were all handled by Hayley and perfectly suited our groups tastes.”

“We couldn’t have imagined a more memorable occasion for our first trip to Napa.  From the relaxed atmosphere of Miner Family Vineyards to the historical Chateau Montelena, each step of our excursion was carefully crafted and customized to our tastes.  Culinary treats abound, vintages flowing, beautiful places to “take-in”, and the Meadowood to rejuvenate…Hayley, you didn’t miss a step!  Thank you.”
