“Choose Your Own Vintage” Library Tasting

Choose your vintage is a bespoke library wine tasting experience where you can taste wines from any year you choose after 1980. The Burgess team will craft a personalized wine tasting experience around any vintage of your choosing from their expansive library. This is a perfect way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special milestone (the 1997 vintage is not available). Your experience is set at their historic winery, perched 1000 feet up on the western slopes of Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. The Burgess Cellars private Mountainside tasting room is the perfect setting for your experience, with panoramic vistas of Napa Valley. The Burgess team will guide you through the tasting experience focusing on the vintage of your choice, sharing unique information about that vintage, what was happening in Napa Valley (or the world), and a fun trivia game about that year! Your experience will also include four additional Burgess mountain estate reserve and library wine selections.

Burgess Cellars
Burgess Cellars has been family owned and creating wines with mountain distinction since 1972 on Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. When our founder Tom Burgess purchased the 1870’s era winery in 1972 he established himself as a pioneer of mountainside wineries. Today, the second generation is building on Tom’s legacy. At almost 1000 feet, far over the valley floor, we produce wines from our two estate hillside vineyards, Winery Ranch Vineyard and Haymaker Vineyard. Our hillside grapes tend to be smaller, with more concentrated flavors and tannins, varietal intensity and excellent aging properties. A visit to Burgess Cellars begins with a panoramic vista that offers a real perspective on the Napa Valley. One can see the length of the Mayacamas range, from Calistoga to the hills beyond Napa.
