OFF THE CHARTS
Get ready to venture far beyond the beaten path in this exclusive tour of Napa’s best-kept secrets – the wineries and destinations only insiders have heard of, let alone visited. We tap our network of local cognoscenti to show you incredible artisans and creatives flying below the radar of the masses. Meet the winemakers of boutique, small-production labels you can’t find anywhere but here.

Delve into our region’s rich winemaking history and visit the iconic properties that helped put Napa on the map. Let us take you to the most famous, significant, and revered wineries in the country – they’re all right here in our backyard.
The Napa Valley has more than 15 different American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) within its borders, each with its own unique terroir. Explore the patchwork patterns of the valley and visit the newest (and arguably the best) appellation on the block, the Coombsville AVA. Coombsville is home to many limited production boutique wineries that are already identified as cult classics. Let us take you from vine to glass with tours and tastings on these exclusive, avant-garde properties.

CRAFT BEER TRAIL
We highlight one-of-a-kind breweries and distilleries in Wine Country. This fun experience offers access to diverse handcrafted local beers, microbreweries, and gastropubs, as well as engaging educational sessions with the folks behind the brews. In an accessible and engaging format, guests will learn about IPA, Pilsner, Lagers, Porters, and "the haps" on hops!
YOGA IN THE VINEYARD
Ommmmmmmm…Get invigorated with an hour-long session of vinyasa flow yoga amidst picturesque Napa Valley vineyards. This experience allows you to learn about your body alignment and improve your core and balance. It's friendly to all levels and is taught by a highly regarded Bay Area yogi, Annie Appleby of YogaForce. After your practice, cool down with refreshments and healthy seasonal fare as you enjoy the view.
Who says there are no seasons in California? Take an ATV ride through the vineyards to appreciate the beauty of every season of wine country — whether winter’s stark grayscale is giving way to the golden glow of springtime mustard, or summer’s intense green canopies and sun-blasted hillsides are deepening into the rainbow of fall foliage. Visit local gardens to appreciate what “farm to table” really means and feast on the season’s bounty to truly taste the difference.
DUST ON YOUR BOOTS
Follow grape to glass in this educational tour of real-world vineyard operations. Take a tractor or Polaris ride between the vine rows, explore vineyard geology, regional and appellation-based differences, soils, weather, trellising and irrigation techniques. Spend some quality time with the vines and experience the agricultural reality of wine country.
Napa Valley is a food-lover’s paradise, with Michelin stars and locally-sourced products nearly everywhere you look. Taste the art of sustainable cooking at one of our many seasonally-driven restaurants, or invite a private chef to create a personalized menu tailored to your favorite wines. Verve can take you shopping for arcane ingredients and heirloom produce, score you a spot in a culinary master class, and spoil you rotten with meals of a lifetime.
ROMANCING THE VALLEY
Surrender to the outrageous romance of Wine Country in some of its most beautiful and secluded spots. Private tables for two, breathtaking views above it all from a hot air balloon, couples' spa treatments, artisanal chocolates, and bottled poetry await you. Whatever your special occasion or theme, we can help you create a devastatingly romantic experience that is entirely cliché-free. Proposals, honeymoons, anniversaries, or just because — no one knows romance like Verve!
Discover Napa’s rich artistic culture with an exclusive look into art, architecture, and landscapes. Verve can take you to galleries, museums, and private studios of the most talented artists and collectors of the valley.
We can also facilitate your own artistic endeavors… just ask! We’re full of creative ideas.
LET'S GET PHYSICAL
Take advantage of Napa and Sonoma’s striking outdoor beauty (and incredible weather) with scenic hikes, bike rentals, and hot air balloon tours over the valley. With access to bocce ball, hickory golf, private tennis courts, and golf courses, we can fill your day with a wide variety of outdoor activities — and your nights with fine wines and dines. Don’t forget the fancy footwear.
FAST AND FURIOUS
If you’ve got a need for speed, this Thunderbird and raceway experience is for you.
