Founded in 1973, Fisher Vineyards is entering its 45th year growing and producing wines from Napa Valley and the western side of Spring Mountain. Now with the involvement of the family’s entire second generation, the winery continues to focus on small production, site-specific, estate grown Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
David Arthur Vineyards was founded in 1985 and is located high above the Napa Valley floor on Pritchard Hill. The rocky red soils from their 20-acre vineyard capture intense flavors and tannins in their Estate wines, offering age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux focused blends.
Two couples are invited on a unique journey filled with luxury and private access to experience Napa Valley through the eyes of winemakers Whitney Fisher of Fisher Vineyards and Nile Zacherle of David Arthur Vineyards. The beautiful Luxury Collection Hotel, Las Alcobas Napa Valley will be your home for your two-night stay in wine country. A one-of-a-kind resort nestled in St Helena, the stately, Georgian-style farmhouse was originally constructed in 1907 and affords guests expansive vineyard views from their private balcony and fire pit.
Spend your first day with winemaker Whitney Fisher of Fisher Vineyards at the winery’s mountain estate located 1,500 feet above the valley floor on the western side of Spring Mountain. Learn about Fisher’s Napa and Sonoma vineyard estates as you tour the winery, vineyard, and cellar before enjoying an al fresco lunch paired with Fisher Vineyard estate wines.
Visit Round Pond’s unique olive mill for an exclusive tour. Guests will be invited for an in depth tasting of their olive oils as well as a tasting of their wines on the winery terrace.
Meet David Arthur’s winemaker and Whitney Fisher’s husband, Nile Zacherle, at the Pritchard Hill estate the next day for an in-depth wine tasting experience from both the bottle and barrel. End your time at Pritchard Hill with an intimate lunch on the estate’s terrace overlooking the Napa Valley from the breathtaking Vaca Mountains.
Take a detour from wine tasting to experience an in-depth tasting and tour of the brewery, malt house, and tap room of Nile and Whitney’s successful beer label. Whitney Fisher and Nile Zacherle founded Mad Fritz Brewing Co in 2014 to create beers like the wines they grow. Their approach, known as Origin Beer, has allowed them to successfully grow, malt, and brew single origin beers from both Napa and Sonoma counties. Their portfolio currently includes over 30 different styles of beer.
