CWD Hosts Hospitality Days in the District

Betsy Busch


Over two days in April, the Crusher Wine District hosted an introductory tour and tasting with three wineries -- Humanitas Wines, Trinitas Cellars and Mi Sueño -- that was an enlightening and eye-opening experience for all, creating several new enthusiastic ambassadors for our growing collective of wineries in the south area of Napa.

Twenty lucky hospitality professionals from local hotels, restaurants, the Visit Napa Valley Welcome Center and Yountville Chamber of Commerce were escorted around the district to sample the unique tasting experiences offered at each winery, complemented by an over-the-top, family-style lunch menu at Siena restaurant in the Meritage Resort & Spa.

  ABOVE: A Private Archive Tasting at Trinitas Library is a rare opportunity to taste extremely limited release, small production wines. Each in its own varietal specific glass from Riedel. BELOW: Molecular Gastronomy Pairings at Humanitas Wines are to be seen, and tasted, to be believed! Intense and aromatic flavors in a single bite to complement and enhance each sip.

Regaled with compelling stories of how each winery began, alongside a diverse offering of select wines paired with something to stimulate the palate -- from molecular gastronomy to an exquisite cheese plate -- the group was elated and pleasantly surprised that they had found such a "hidden gem."

We were thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive feedback and plan to host many more tours and tastings in the near future.  So we can bring another wave of our hospitality friends and neighbors to learn more about what we have happening here at the Crusher Wine District!  Thanks for joining us.

Here are some of the comments in their own words:

CWD is for people looking for a unique experience, especially those seeking outstanding service.

I had no idea such beautiful tasting rooms and innovative use of space lay behind those plain, industrial walls...I have tasted many less satisfying vintages at traditional wineries who spend $$$$$$ on spectacular buildings and advertising blitzes.

These wineries present an ‘entry to the Valley’, or they can be the last places guests go as they exit the Valley. Again, it couldn’t have been a better experience!
