The sauvignon blanc they make at Quintessa is fantastic, but it’s their red blend that will make you understand why some high price tags on wine are justified. Coming here for a tour feels as special as the wine they make. There are incredible views of the lake at the center of the vineyards. The cellars are so pretty you’ll want to have your engagement party in them, and the tasting rooms feel more like high-powered board rooms they might use for the G8 summit. Tours and tastings range from $70 to $150 - it’s not cheap, but it’s absolutely worth it.
