Sullivan Vineyards

1090 Galleron Lane
Rutherford, CA  94573
707-963-9646
www.sullivanwine.com

 

A passion for winemaking that began with a simple grape arbor given as a wedding gift ignited a way of life for the Sullivan’s. Known for his artistic creations with a canvas, Jim Sullivan would soon channel his talents to the glass creating world class cabernets and merlots from a small property he found in Rutherford. Together with his wife Joanna, they collaborated with world class chefs, architects, artists and musicians to bring their artistic vision to life, not only for their family to enjoy, but for the world. Today, Sullivan Vineyards and Winery is one of the last remaining family owned estates in Napa Valley. The newly remodeled winery and courtyard beckons guests to the winery to enjoy a tasting of fine wines from their Rutherford Estate. Appointment only, the winery currently hosts guests at 11am, 1pm or 3pm. Standard tastings are available as well as VIP tastings paired with sourced cheese and charcuterie to enhance the tasting experience. 

GEMS Benefit: Sullivan Vineyards is happy to provide our VIP tasting at $45 per person (regularly $75 per person). 2 person minimum per tasting. 


 

 

Chappellet Vineyard

1581 Sage Canyon Road 
Saint Helena, CA  94574
707-286-4219     www.chappellet.com

The Chappellet family’s romance with Pritchard Hill started more than four decades ago when Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed its magnificent vista of forests and wildflower-filled meadows. The Chappellets settled on Pritchard Hill’s rock slopes, becoming the first winery to plant vineyards exclusively on high-elevation hillsides. The rugged terroir has become legendary for producing wines of great intensity and depth, and Chappellet wines have consistently received the highest praise from critics, and are sought after by the world’s premier collectors. 

We invite you to experience Chappellet’s extraordinary wines and the stunning natural beauty of Pritchard Hill. 

GEMS Benefit: Chappellet is pleased to offer a private, by-appointment tour of the winery followed by a seated tasting for four (4) guests, featuring our limited production wines. 

$45 per person (Regularly $60)                  


 

Frog's Leap

8815 Conn Creek Road
Saint Helena, CA  94574
707-286-4219   www.frogsleap.com

 

Frog's Leap was founded by the Williams Family in 1981. The way we make our wine at Frog’s Leap is fundamentally linked to the way we grow our grapes. We believe that a grapevine should be grown in healthy soil that supports all the nutrient needs of the plant and so we started farming organically over 20 years ago. We also believe that most of the great and historic wines of the world have been made from non-irrigated grapevines which is why we dry-farm all 250 acres of our vineyards. We accept the premise that the first responsibility of a wine is to reflect its unique soil, climate and circumstance —collectively referred to as terroir — and therefore it is the duty of the winemaker to be transparent and let the natural beauty of the grapes show through. Our commitment is to endeavor to make wines of elegance and beauty that will offer immense pleasure in the short term while holding out the possibility of great reward with proper aging. 

GEMS Benefit: Frog’s Leap welcomes GEMS members to enjoy our Signature Seated Tasting, Monday through Thursday by prior appointment. We will happily offer 1 tasting with our compliments for each tasting purchased, for parties up to 4 guests. Each and every day, GEMS members will also receive a 10% discount on any wine purchase, without minimums or limits, both in person at the winery or in our online shop.
