Ten prestigious Napa wineries have joined together to create the first cross-winery collection in Napa Valley’s history. We formed this partnership to help raise the final donations needed to complete all ten sections of the 47-mile Napa Valley Vine Trail. We are asking you to join us by adding this collection to your cellar.
Each of these remarkable wineries is creating three barrels of custom cabernet sauvignon. Every cabernet will be rare and unique. Upon release, each will be presented in an artful Vine Trail bottle and added to the Vine Trail Vintner Collection.
Two bottles of the Collection will be released each year, 2020 through 2024, and only 900 of these rare collections will be produced. The Vintner Collection bottles, when placed next to each another in the included custom wooden rack, will reveal the 10-section map of the Vine Trail from Calistoga to Vallejo.
By adding these wines to your cellar, you are supporting the completion of the Napa Valley Vine Trail. Already hugely popular on its open sections, the completed Vine Trail will give you the chance to walk, run, bike and most of all, experience the entire length of the Valley Napa at a slower pace, at terroir level.
Begun in 2008, the Napa Valley Vine Trail is a dedicated walking and cycling trail that will run the length of the valley. The 47-mile Trail will pass more than 80 wineries and vineyards as it winds north from the Vallejo Ferry Terminal, through American Canyon, the Rail Arts District in Napa and northward along the vineyards of Oak Knoll, Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford, Saint Helena and Calistoga.
Over 19 miles are already built, with over half-a-million residents and visitors using the trail each year. Two additional sections totaling 15 miles will be completed in 2021 with the final leg from Yountville to Saint Helena projected to be finished in 2026.
This project is a true partnership. Thirty Napa Valley organizations representing landowner, commercial, environmental, health, education, civic groups and winery interests are participating with the single goal of bringing this generational project to completion. The Vintner Collection wine, bottles, corks, caps, labels, wine storage and ground shipping are donated.
Your dollars are not alone. Every dollar contributed is used to leverage nearly three dollars in federal, state and local grants.
The commitment from the community and leverage on your investment doesn’t end there. The Roger J. Trinchero Family Foundation and several other generous Vine Trail supporters pledged $1,000 for each of the first 150 Vintner Collections acquired!
The first two bottles of the Collection are available now, with two more added at the end of each summer through 2024, shipping seasonally in the spring and fall. In the end, you will have ten exceptional wines displayed in a custom wooden rack.
The $5,000 10-bottle Vine Trail Vintner Collection can be acquired for five annual payments of $1,000 or a single up-front payment of $4,500. For tax purposes, $800 of each annual payment or $3,500 of your single up-front payment qualifies as a charitable contribution to the Napa Valley Vine Trail Coalition. All funds raised will go directly to building the Vine Trail.
Join us in this rare opportunity to assemble a superb collection of wines while helping propel the Napa Valley Vine Trail over the finish line.
