A Day in Wine Country with The Spire Collection

California’s Wine Country has always been a favorite destination of Inspirato Members. In Sonoma County and Napa Valley, members pack their itineraries with reservations at some of the country’s best restaurants, bike tours, and, of course, wine tastings.

Inspirato’s partner, The Spire Collection, makes it easy to sample the best wines from the region – and even beyond. Under one roof, The Spire Collection encompasses many different top wineries from Sonoma and Napa, plus international destinations including Australia, South Africa, and more. While visitors can sip samples from The Spire Collection’s long list of winemakers in one visit, the full experience is best enjoyed by visiting the collection’s wineries throughout the valley. Grab a map, hire a driver, and prepare your palate for our suggested journey to the Spire Collection’s best wineries.

Kick things off with a private tasting at The Spire Collection’s newly refurbished property, a beautiful, contemporary barn (pictured above) located near Calistoga at the north end of Napa Valley. Inspirato Members receive one complimentary tasting experience for up to four guests at The Spire Collection Estate; amid idyllic surroundings, this is a perfect place to start a day of sipping varietals from around the world. Members also receive access to custom wine experiences at the estate, as well as one-time special pricing of 20% off full retail prices.

Next, head to Cardinale’s exquisite property on a hill for more tastings and what some say are the best views in all of Napa. The winery’s acclaimed 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is not to be missed. Come hungry – food pairings here are thoughtful and delicious. A bit further are Lokoya and Verite wineries, both known as can’t-miss stops for wine connoisseurs.


After all these tastings, what better way is there to unwind than by relaxing back at your Inspirato accommodations?
