Alpha Omega Winery
Harvest is in full swing in California wine country. We just returned from an incredible shoot there! You'll soon start seeing some of our adventures on Goodtaste.tv here, but I wanted to tell you about a unexpected bit of fun.
Some friends of ours actually harvested the grapes from their vineyards while we were there--a small production, probably no more than about 20 cases. Talk about an exciting time!
Because their production is small, like many wine producers in the valley, they employ the services of a mobile bottling system. It's actually a large semi-truck that pulls up to the winery or grape crushing facility, and it has everything you need to transform your barrels of wine into bottles complete with corks and labels.
It was quite fascinating to watch...and quite fast! You can see it right here.
$50,000,000 SUPER ULTRA MODERN MEGA VINEYARD ESTATE NAPA VALLEY CALIFORNIA
THE ULTIMATE VINEYARD ESTATE !
IN AN ULTRA PRIVATE LOCATION !
SURROUNDED BY THE EXCLUSIVE WORLD RENOWNED VINEYARDS OF NAPA VALLEY !
(Tres Sabores, Grgich Hills Estate, Alpha Omega Winery, & Beaulieu Vineyards)
1561 S Whitehall Lane Saint Helena California 94574
7 beds 10 baths 2,229 sqft
As though rising among the St. Helena vineyards like a megalith, this unrivaled Napa Valley Modern Vineyard Estate on 20+/- acres is the rare confluence of world-class, modern architecture & design, the highest caliber construction and an enviable, ultra-private location within minutes from town.
Having completed five years of planning, design & build, notable Bay Area architect Lewis Butler’s vision of a modern vineyard masterpiece reveals now. Whitehall Estate is commandingly sited with views of the 14+/- sweeping, verdant acres of AVA Rutherford cabernet sauvignon grapes that surround.
At 6,700sf (10,365sf under roof), this modern Residence features elements rarely found in new homes: imbued infrastructure commensurate for a hotel or subdivision, and a steel-suspended, floating system for showcasing a wine collection. Large glass walls slide open to create seamless indoor/outdoor experiences with an “only-in-California,” Mid-Century ambiance of spaciousness and light.
At the centermost core of the Residence is an oversized 21st century Chef’s kitchen and a butler’s kitchen. The sun-drenched, outdoor pavilion features an open-air Kitchen and an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa.
The over-sized Master suite encompasses a spa-like bath, a voluminous walk-in closet and a private office or yoga/meditation room.
An adjacent Spa House of 776sf (1,400sf under roof) is flexible for use as an art space or yoga/fitness studio. Visiting guests, family or personal staff will luxuriate in the 2,250sf (3,000sf under roof), three-bedroom Guest House.
The Whitehall vineyard, in its third leaf, will soon enjoy its first harvest enabling the new owner to consider creating a private label Cabernet Sauvignon wine. The Whitehall winery license has been approved for a 10,000 gallon per year production facility.

Behind the Wine: Amici Cellars
In 1991, a group of friends with a passion for good wine crushed a few tons of grapes in Napa Valley for their personal cellars. Their creation received such outstanding accolades that the friends started producing wine to share with others. Appropriately named, Amici means “friends” in Italian and the Amici team are just that – a band of friends, closely collaborating to produce highly rated, handcrafted wines.

Napa Valley's Brasswood Estate: Wine, Food, Art & Lifestyle
Napa Valley is world-renowned for having some of the finest destinations for wine, food and art. But until now, none of it was in one location. Meet Brasswood Estate.
General Manager Marcus Marquez shares with us the lifestyle destination that is Brasswood. The Estate was created through passion and represents a true destination spot where you can relax and take “the St. Helena lifestyle seriously”.
The 57-acre property in St. Helena, centered around many legendary winemakers, is designed in a fashion where you can start your day there – grab something from the bakery, then stay for the artwork, impeccable grounds, meal at the restaurant and sensory wine education.
Winemaking is led by Stacia Williams, with consulting winemaker and neighbor, Angelina Mondavi on board. Making wine since she was 10 years old, Angelina is a perfect compliment to Stacia’s style. She also makes wine on the property with her two direct to consumer brands, Dark Matter and Aloft.
Brasswood also has impressive portfolio clients, as they are one of the most state of the art wineries in Napa Valley right now, including 17,000 square feet of caves and a living roof that helps control the energy to create an environment for high quality wines. Others making wine at the facility include Phillipe Melka, Russell Bevan and Timothy Milos.
From start to finish, nothing has been overlooked at Brasswood. The attention to detail is off the charts, and from a lifestyle destination location, there’s nothing like it in Napa Valley. Fine wine, exceptional dining, amazing artwork and gorgeous grounds that you have to experience! Learn more:

How To Taste Wine With Mira Winery
Find out how to taste wine like a pro, courtesy of Mira Winery, at the Mira Winery Napa Valley Education Center & Tasting Room in Charleston, S.C.
To learn more about the Napa Valley Education Center & Tasting Room in Charleston, S.C., visit:
First, make sure you're in a quiet room free of distractions. Everything can affect the taste of wine, so make sure there are no loud noises or crowds around you. Smells can also alter the taste of the wine, so make sure there are no strong cooking or perfume smells wafting into your space.
The temperature of the wine matters! Make sure you're serving at the right temperature. To find out what that is, check out our blog post on the topic:
Second, give your wine a good swirl. This allows some oxygen into the wine and releases its natural aromas. Give it a series of quick, short sniffs. These steps will help you evaluate the wine by sight and smell, allow you to identify what kind of wine it is, and potentially predict what it will taste like.
Next, it's time to taste! Take a small sip and let it linger in your mouth. Roll the wine around to your mouth and pay attention to how it feels. Then, swallow and feel the wine running through your body.
Thanks for joining us today. We hope our guide on how to taste wine was useful.
