Ten prestigious Napa wineries have joined together to create the first cross-winery collection in Napa Valley’s history. We formed this partnership to help raise the final donations needed to complete all ten sections of the 47-mile Napa Valley Vine Trail. We are asking you to join us by adding this collection to your cellar.
Each of these remarkable wineries is creating three barrels of custom cabernet sauvignon. Every cabernet will be rare and unique. Upon release, each will be presented in an artful Vine Trail bottle and added to the Vine Trail Vintner Collection.
Only 800 of these rare collections will be produced. Five wines of the Collection were released from 2020. Three wines are still in barrel waiting to be bottled in 2023 and 2024. The Vintner Collection bottles, when placed next to each another in the included custom wooden rack, reveals the 10-section map of the Vine Trail from Calistoga to Vallejo..
Your donation to the Napa Valley Vine Trail supports the full mission to construct the remaining 10 miles and adds a rare wine collection to your cellar. The 800 donors through the Napa Valley Vine Trail Collection will raise over $3 million dollars to complete the Vine Trail through the Oakville and Rutherford corridor. Already hugely popular on its open sections, the completed Vine Trail will give you the chance to walk, run, bike and most of all, experience the entire length of the Valley Napa at a slower pace, at terroir level. With your support, you will enjoy the best of Napa Valley Cabernet when the Yountville to Saint Helena projected is finished in 2027.
Begun in 2008, the Napa Valley Vine Trail is a dedicated walking and cycling trail that will run the length of the valley. The 47-mile Trail will pass more than 80 wineries and vineyards as it winds north from the Vallejo Ferry Terminal, through American Canyon, the Rail Arts District in Napa, and northward along the vineyards of Oak Knoll, Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford, Saint Helena and Calistoga.
This project is a true partnership. Thirty Napa Valley organizations representing landowner, commercial, environmental, health, education, civic groups and winery interests are participating with the single goal of bringing this generational project to completion. The Vintner Collection wine, bottles, corks, caps, labels, wine storage and ground shipping are all donated.
Your dollars are not alone. Every dollar contributed is used to leverage nearly three dollars in federal, state and local grants.
The first two bottles of the Collection were released in 2020, five more will be added at the end of 2021, with the last 3 bottles released by 2024. The wines will ship seasonally in the spring and fall. In the end, you will have ten exceptional wines displayed in a custom wooden rack.
