On your way to the tour you will be served a three course, gourmet lunch prepared onboard. Grgich Hill Estate and winery is owned and operated by a family who is dedicated to making wine in a sustainable yet artistic manner. The owner has been introduced into the Vintner Hall of Fame, and perhaps while on the tour you may actually get to meet him. Your lunch or dinner service is determined by your dates of travel.
Hands-On Cooking Class and Gourmet Meal
The culinary learning center was created to celebrate the coming together of the local agricultural bounty with culinary talents from the region and around the world. You are going to learn new skills at the hands of these culinary masters. They offer a wide range of cooking skills, and feature ethnic cuisines and famous chefs’ seasonal menus. Everyone will find classes to meet their skills levels, and unique culinary interests. It also includes a sit-down meal at the conclusion of the class. Most classes conclude with dinner, but depending on your dates for travel, and available culinary instruction, your meal may be served as lunch rather than dinner.
