TOURS! TOURS! TOURS!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to stand amongst ripening grapes with nothing but vineyards as far as the eye can see? How about experiencing one of two fully guided vineyard tours offered at Naggiar in our new Eco-shuttle people mover!
The first, our standard VINEYARD TOUR, lasts 45 minutes and allows guests to get up close and personal with the vines; an exciting experience at this time of the year during harvest. Learn a bit about how varietals differ in growing condition, ripening style and harvesting technique. Capture memories of your tour with a brief stop atop a picturesque knoll for a photo opportunity.
This standard tour runs at 1:00, 3:00 and 5:00 pm on Saturdays and 1:00 and 3:00 pm on Sundays. The cost is $15 per participant and tickets can be purchased in the Tasting Room on the day of the tour, no reservations are required. Root 49 Wine Club members receive their 20% discount on Vineyard Tour tickets. If you would like to arrange a group tour, or reserve your spot for a specific tour, call us at 530-268-9059. Space is limited on each tour, and will be on a first come, first serve basis. Inclement weather and previously scheduled Behind the Scenes Tours may affect scheduling.
The second is our deluxe 2 ½ hour BEHIND THE SCENES VINEYARD AND WINERY TOUR for wine lovers that would like to experience something more in depth and learn why to make great wine you have to first start with exceptional quality grapes and how great wines are grown, produced, cellared and bottled. This tour takes you from “vine to wine”, literally! A wine and cheese pairing along with a commemorative glass is included in this educational and enjoyable tour. Behind the Scenes Tours include fully guided stops in the vineyard, in the winery, and the Tasting Room. A first hand look at the winemaking process and wine tasting from the barrel are included.
Behind the Scenes Tours currently run twice a month and reservations are necessary. The next scheduled Behind the Scenes Tours will be held on September 17 and September 25, both at 2:00 pm. The cost is $40 per participant (over 21 please) and reservations can be made online or by calling 530-268-9059. Root 49 Wine Club members pay $35 for Behind the Scenes Tours. As with our standard Vineyard Tours, all tickets are non-refundable once purchased unless the tour is cancelled.
At Naggiar we believe great wines begin in the vineyard with exceptional grapes. How better to truly understand this connection than by immersion in the vineyard itself. Visiting our Tasting Room and sampling our fine, estate grown, produced and bottled wines is an experience. Kick it up a notch with a vineyard tour for a truly distinctive encounter.
