Ultra-Luxe Experiences Offer New Ways to Experience TOR Throughout 20th Anniversary
(St. Helena, Calif.—May 24, 2021) – TOR Napa Valley, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2021, offers two private, by-appointment-only experiences for intrepid and discerning wine lovers who are looking for highly memorable luxury experiences.
The Black Magic Experience
Only a select few can ever experience Napa Valley like this. The TOR Black Magic Experience is available on a very limited basis by-appointment-only and is a true behind-the-curtains peek into the life of a vintner at the top of their game and what goes into making 100-point wines at TOR.
David Grega, TOR’s longtime Associate Winemaker will host exclusive tours of the hallowed soils of the legendary Vine Hill Ranch, Beckstoffer Dr. Crane and Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyards, followed by a delicious culinary experience. Guests will have the rare opportunity to taste a selection of highly rated TOR wines, including the 2018 Black Magic, which was awarded four 100-point scores by The Wine Advocate, Antonio Galloni of Vinous, Jeb Dunnuck and International Wine Report ($950 per person, with a four-person minimum)
Pritchard Hill Hike & Flight
Greg Melanson’s Pritchard Hill vineyard is prime real estate for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Perched approximately 1500 feet above the valley floor, the vineyard shares august neighbors: across from Colgin and adjacent to Continuum and OVID.
It’s a stunning and rugged site that is usually not open to the public, however Greg is allowing TOR to bring a small number of people to his top-of-the-world vineyard. Enjoy the magnificent view and hike the vineyard’s steep grade to better understand the nuances of Pritchard Hill Cabernet—truly at its prime under the capable hands and palates of Tor and Winemaker Jeff Ames.
After either heart pumping vineyard walk or leisurely stroll, enjoy a tasting of three vintages of TOR’s spectacular Melanson Cabernets paired with small bites. ($350 per person, with a four-person minimum)
