Many oenophiles know about Promontory Wine. What most may not know is the relationship between Promontory and Meadowood Napa Valley. Part of the enduring vision of William Harlan, Meadowood's founder, both Promontory and the Napa Valley Reserve continue under the guidance of the second generation of the Harlan family.

The winery and its vineyards sit on a vast expanse of wild terrain in central Napa Valley. Promontory is NOT one of the many wineries you'll see driving along the Silverado Trail or taking the wine train. It's most definitely not a place you can just drop into for a wine tasting. Visits are limited and by appointment only. The best way to experience Promontory is to book a stay at Meadowood Napa Valley through your Virtuoso travel advisor. We'll arrange with the team at Meadowood to schedule your appointment at Promontory and arrange a day of wine experiences customized around your own tastes and interests.

Our group tasted from two bottles of Promontory wine, including this twelve year old 2008 Cabernet. It is something exceptionally special!
