FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 4, 2014

Ashley Machen, Owner and Travel Specialist at Treasure Travel [http://www.trytreasuretravel.com/], is launching the first in a series of unique wine & spirits tours called "Adventures by the Glass".

The inaugural 6-day "Exclusive Napa/Sonoma Wine Tour" [http://www.trytreasuretravel.com/#!wine-tours/c1j5a] will begin May 31, 2014 and will bring the traveler to specially selected wineries off-the-beaten-path, in addition to some notable Napa and Sonoma highlights.

Local wine experts Bryan Dias and Aaron Angelo from Enological Guild of New Orleans (EGNOLA) [http://www.egnola.org/] offered excellent suggestions to include some small but amazing wineries, such as Peterson and Kokomo in Healdsburg and Cornerstone Cellars in Yountville, so guests can enjoy a more uncommon experience in the region.

Also featured in the itinerary are activities found in a wine lover's dreams -- including a wine blending lab at Dry Creek Valley where participants create their own bottles of wine, and a hands-on cooking class at a famous culinary school followed by a pairing with local wines.

Some additional highlights include:

  • Muir Woods National Monument
  • Napa's Oxbow Public Market
  • Castello di Amorosa, Tuscan-style castle and winery
  • Gloria Ferrer for a sparkling wine tasting
  • San Francisco Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market

Guests will never need to worry about driving tipsy, as they will travel in a luxury air-conditioned coach guided by a knowledgeable Travel Director. Every day will conclude in five-star comfort at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco or the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa.

Treasure Travel and EGNOLA are partnering with Pearl Wine Co. to host a local wine tasting event that features wines from the Napa and Sonoma region. The event is $5 per person, and will take place Tuesday, January 14, 2014, 6 pm - 8 pm at Pearl Wine Co. (formerly Cork & Bottle) in the American Can Building at 3700 Orleans Ave. RSVP to Ashley@TryTreasureTravel.com.

For the full trip itinerary and to register, please visit http://www.trytreasuretravel.com/. Deposit of $250 must be received by January 29, 2014.
