Guest blogger: Valerie Owens, Medallion Collection Manager
Calling all wine enthusiasts!
Industry legend, Robert Mondavi, once said, “Incorporating food, wine and the arts enhances the quality of life.” With an infinite selection to charm your palette, it is no wonder people from all over the globe escape to Napa Valley.
Though the journey may only last one weekend, bringing the valley into your home is easier than you think. At Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley, guest experience vinification at its finest while basking in aesthetic perfection. It is this intrinsic beauty that lends itself to a membership program which engages the senses – the Medallion Collection membership.
There is nothing more exciting than tasting a new varietal, or being introduced to a hidden gem. Boutique selections encompass Tor Kenward, Kristine Ashe Vineyards, Casa Piena, and Husic Vineyards to name a few. Included in March’s membership shipment is the 2009 vintage release of Blackbird Vineyards Illustration Proprietary Red which will land in members’ hands before anyone else. Also included is Lail Vineyards Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon which just received 92 points from Antonio Galloni of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
Such artistry deserves a home and the Medallion Collection provides members with more than just quarterly shipments and rare wine offerings. We welcome our members to private events throughout the year, customized concierge services, and lottery benefits including private hosted dinners at Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley, an Emotive Audi R8 Driving experience, and accommodations at the luxurious Auberge du Soleil, Oak Knoll House and Mandarin Oriental.
As the Medallion Collection Manager and wine enthusiast, there is nothing better than opening our cellar to our members. Traditional membership programs have limitations, but we work with extraordinary vintner partners and have the ability to showcase rare offerings, library selections, large formats and hands down, some of the most beautiful wines in the valley.
Connoisseur member, Mark Lin states, “I love the opportunity to taste a wide variety of limited production fine wines and the complimentary shipping for all online purchases is a real bonus!”
Whether you visit regularly or travel for a special occasion, the Medallion Collection enables you to celebrate the Napa Valley lifestyle and welcomes you to a home away from home.
We look forward to welcoming you to our family,
