From Golf Lessons with a Pro to Dad's Very Own Vine,™ Delivers a Range of Father's Day Gift Ideas

Napa, Calif. (May 21, 2007) – This Father’s Day, has a few ideas that are sure to spark a smile from any wine-loving dad who’s received one too many corkscrews. The site, the web’s premier portal for regional wine country destinations throughout the United States, introduces a trio of "Exclusive Experiences" with dads oenophile side in mind. Affordably priced from $250 to $795 and perfect for aspiring vintners, passionate travelers and avid golfers, Exclusive Experiences can be found online at

The site's singular experiences include:

  • Golf Sonoma Wine Country package features a full day of one-on-one private golf coaching with a Kris Moe Golf Schools pro at the breathtaking Sonoma Golf Club. The $795 package includes lunch, green fees and cart for 18 holes, personalized video golf swing analysis, golf school shirt and notebook.
  • Private Wine Tasting with Staglin Family Vineyard puts dad in the midst of wine - and movie-making greatness. This private experience at Napa's Staglin Family Vineyard – location of "The Parent Trap" movie – includes a private tasting with the owner or winemaker (current releases, a library selection and barrel samples), a tour of the winery, garden and family estate and opportunity to join the Staglin Wine Club (currently closed to new members). The $250 (for two) package also includes a bottle of Staglin "Salus" chardonnay.
  • DiVine Dream is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for dad to own his own Napa Valley vine. Caldwell Winery owner John Caldwell opens the wine cave doors for dad and three friends to tour the property, barrel taste the winery's most sought-after wines, visit the vine anytime from bud break to harvest and take home two magnums of wine created from the Caldwell vineyards. Regular email updates on the vine's progress are part of this $750 package.

For dads who love to entertain, the site features a Valley and Vine online shop with dozens of gourmet gift ideas and a full library of wine-related books. Most Valley and Vine gifts are shipped gift-wrapped, if desired, directly from the retailer.
