If you’re looking for more than a traditional vineyard tour on your next trip to Napa, be sure to visit Maisonry Collective. Founded on a principle of aesthetic pleasure, this vineyard describes itself as pairing artisan wines with exquisite art and furnishings in a historic setting. In October 2008 Maisonry Napa Valley opened its doors to the public. This private residence was built in 1904, and, like many other historic buildings in Napa Valley, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of three stone buildings in Yountville.
Seeking to evoke a living gallery atmosphere with their art and furnishings, boutique wines are enjoyed at Maisonry Napa Valley. Limited production wines, including Pomerol-inspired blends from Blackbird Vineyards, are sampled during wine tastings. The Maisonry Collective is all about choices, and clients can choose their wine tasting setting. Three private tasting rooms, two great rooms, outdoor gardens or the fire pit are all wonderful settings for tasting a few of the best wines Napa has to offer.
Maisonry features a variety of wines during tastings. A Napa wine collective consisting of Blackbird Vineyards, Husic Vineyards, Lail Vineyards, Brown Estate, Pedras Wine Company, Tor Kenward Family Wines, and Renteria Wines make up the range of wine flights available at Maisonry Napa Valley. Tasting flights range from $15 to $35 per person, and the flights feature different vintages or types of wines. Some tasting flights have a theme as well, such as the Bordeaux-inspired flight. If you’re interested in sampling wines from this Napa wine collective, reservations can be made in advance.
Making an appointment in advance to visit the Maisonry Collective will ensure receiving the location and wine flight of your choice. Guests are welcomed every day of the week, and Thursday through Saturday, Maisonry extends its hours until 10 pm for guests to linger in the aesthetic experience into the evening. An inspirational setting, from the art to the furnishings to the original historic building, Maisonry delivers on its goal to provide an intimate atmosphere to share the passion of fine wine.
The Napa wine collective that is featured at Maisonry rotates wines to introduce guests to boutique and limited-edition varieties. You may be more tempted to make a purchase when seated in one of the three private rooms in the historic house or the manicured gardens. Let Maisonry do the selecting for you, and when you arrive, you can choose from a few selected favorites what bottle you would like to add to your own collection. If you're looking for unique wineries to add to your wine tours of Napa Valley, Maisonry certainly deserves a place on the list—it's an unforgettable spot.
