We are excited to announce that family owned Trinchero Family Estates  will be joining Grand Hotel for Summer Wine Appreciation Weekend. You will have the opportunity to explore varietals from Trinchero’s brand, Terra d’Oro translated as “Land of Gold.” The name pays tribute to its Italian heritage by creating Pinot Grigios and Barberas, along with single-vineyard Zinfandels. Jeff Meyers from Terra d’Oro will be joining us for the weekend along with Grand Hotel’s Wine Sommelier, Elizabeth Schweitzer.

Terra d'Oro

The weekend will begin with a Welcome Reception on the Front Porch followed by a five-course dinner in the Main Dining Room. On Saturday enjoy a full breakfast in the Main Dining Room followed by two themed wine tastings.

Morning tasting: Enjoy Italian varietals from California including, Pinot Grigio, Nebbiolo based Rose, Aglianico (ancient grape from Southern Italy), Teroldego, Barbera, and Sangiovese. All the wines tasted during this session are made in very small production and provide a unique opportunity to taste something not available every where.

Afternoon tasting: The second tasting on Saturday will have a Zinfandel perspective including, Terra d’Oro Zinfandel,  Home Vineyard Zinfandel, Deaver Vineyard Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and finishing with  Zinfandel Port.

Later that evening, enjoy featured wines at the Grand Cocktail Reception and a special private dinner. Afterwards sip demitasse, enjoy musical entertainment in the Terrace Room or gather with friends in the Cupola Bar. In addition the package includes accommodations in one of 393 uniquely decorated guest rooms and all of the modern amenities of Grand Hotel.
