Dear Napa Valley Enthusiasts, 

(Click Here to Join Our Interest List)
FINALLY! It's finally time to visit Napa Valley, whether it's a revisit or your first time, the LearnAboutWine Napa Valley Experience is like no other! Our trip will focus on hidden gems, limited quantities of high quality producers of merit.  January is a fantastic time to get the wineries involved as they are home and ready to see us and the crowds are gone.  Weather tends to be great with fits of rain… Napa is beautiful even in the rain.  Please wait to book your air until all accommodations are settled;  There will be options for transfers from the airport to your hotel.

The itinerary is vague until we have all the pieces in place - ONLY 10 spots available.
 
Commitment Levels:
(a)  Maybe; I want to be on the interest list only (Click Here to Join Our Interest List)
(b)  YES; I want to pay a deposit of $1000/per person and agree to the terms and conditions - refunds only when your deposit is repurchased by another or I may gift/sell my spot to friends/family
(c)  YES; I will also want an additional night Saturday and/or Wednesday Night - please contact me.

Once we have received a paid deposit, you will have secured a position on the trip. Your deposit is non-refundable; refundable only if and when someone else purchases your position.  Interest list sign-ups will receive more information when available; but are not promised a position on the trip until the final paperwork is received, and confirmed.  A communication will be sent to you with more details, options, upgrades and optional dinner details.

This trip is first come, first serve - but requires full payment by Sept 1.
