Perfect wine, perfect food pairings, and perfect staff! We love Tony and the entire visit was more than one can ask for! I was there initially a week or two before Xmas, and turned right around and ...brought my daughter there for a tasting (and of course wine to take home with her!) Xmas weekend and she joined too. What a delight it was to visit with Tony and hear so much more of the story behind the winery! It was like being at home with family, sharing stories and great wine! Hugs, see you again soon my Potelle Winery family!! See More

I was very impressed with my visit at Chateau Potelle! Anthony helped us out with a food & wine pairing that was spectacular! We LOVED the Potelle Two, and the Zinfandel paired with a duck bite was ab...solutely to die for! I’m definitely going to plan another trip there soon. See More

I always stop here when in Napa. The story behind this winery is great and the owner is a real character (in a good way). He was disowned by his family in France for having the nerve to make wine in N...apa. VGS stands for "very good shit" which is what a paper called his wine and he was furious until he found out that that's a compliment here. See More

Intimate, Convivial and Extraordinary. Come to a place that reflects the style of our wines … elegant, restrained and extremely well done in all details. A place in which our attitude resonates throughout … fun, easy and sometimes irreverent but never pretentious.

VGS Tasting House & Garden
Open daily 10am-5pm
in St. Helena

All you need is LOVE and WINE.
Maybe some chocolate and a nap.
But mostly the LOVE. Happy Valentine's Day!

Make Your Own Wine! Join us for the VGS Winemaker Weekend. March 9-11, 2018
or October 19-21, 2018.

We invite you to join me, Jean-Noel Fourmeaux, and team VGS for a weekend in the Napa Valley to remember and become a winemaker for a day! Learn the art of blending and create your very own Napa Valley wine. With my guidance and assistance you will work to blend the refined elegance of Bordeaux with the charm, opulence and exuberance of Napa Valley.

...

We will record your "assemblage" and bottle a case (12-750ml bottles) of your personal 2017 red wine, labeled with your name on it.

To reserve your spot for this unique experience, please contact Matthew Regan at (707) 255-9440 x 4, or at matthew@chateaupotelle.com.

Schedule:

Friday - 6:00 - 9:00 PM: WELCOME RECEPTION AND DINNER
Join us at the Tasting House & Garden in St. Helena for a relaxed evening of great food and wine as we get to know each other while enjoying Library Wines and current releases in preparation for the big blending day!

Saturday
9:30 AM - 2:30 PM: BLENDING EXPERIENCE at THE CIA AT COPIA
First, I will instruct you about the characteristics and flavor profiles of each varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Through a blending demonstration, you will see how each varietal affects the other ones, how they each can be part of a blend and in what manner they can contribute to the blend you want to create. Through the artistry of blending, I will show you where the science stops and the art begins! Then I will humbly become your assistant winemaker. With pipettes, graduated tubes, bottles and glasses in hand, you will discover what best suits your own palate and craft your own wine! How fun is that?

WINE COUNTRY LUNCH at THE RESTAURANT AT CIA COPIA
We will take a much needed break from blending and enjoy a delicious lunch paired with VGS wines.

7:00 PM: WINEMAKERS DINNER at LA TOQUE RESTAURANT
Join us at the Mchelin rated La Toque restaurant to celebrate all your hard work. Hors d'oeuvres and Champagne will be served on the private patio followed by a five-course dinner Chef Ken Frank and his team has designed to accompany the VGS wines.

Sunday
10:30 AM - NOON: SUNDAY BRUNCH
Your winemaking weekend will conclude with a leisurely brunch at the Tasting House & Garden in St. Helena. Enjoy a leisurely morning with more amazing food and wine before we bid you farewell.

$2,950/couple for this fantastic experience including 12 bottles of your personal 2017 red wine, labeled with your name on it. Wine will be bottled in June 2019. Accommodations and transportation not included. Payment is transferable but not refundable. Payment in full is due at the time of booking.
