When Visiting Napa, using Cultured Vine is the only way to go! From our early conversations with Angela and then Christopher, they made sure that our trip was unforgettable. Every detail was taken care of and every step exceeded expectations. Although all of our visits were exceptional, having chef Kelly prepare lunch at Aloft was especially incredible.
The entire trip was wow! From the patio dinner at Auberge du Soleil to the tastings with winery owners that we literally walked their vineyards with them where they shared their passion and labors to produce amazing wines! Each visit was unique and amazing. Our hosts were so friendly and engaging and it felt like we met new lifelong friends!! Was an amazing trip! Thank you!
We wanted to send a note to you to thank you so much for the extraordinary experience that you created for us. We have been to the Napa valley many times and have found that the experience is always varied and tends to evolve into something new each time we are there. The wine culture and culinary scene certainly opens up to you when you have the opportunity to really experience Napa and appreciate what a special place it is. Each of the tastings you set up for us were different and special.While it’s hard not to eat well in Napa, the French Laundry was incredible and we were invited into the kitchen at the end of the night! This was a real thrill, which we think you had a hand in arranging, an experience we will never forget.We want to thank you so much for what you did to make this wonderful experience for us; without your help, it never would have been so special. We will keep in touch and look forward to working with you for many more Napa vacations.
Angela did a wonderful job making our recent visits to Napa awesome! She scheduled our tastings at some of the finest vineyards in the area where we enjoyed meeting with several of the owners which made the experience so much more special. Angela puts her first class touch on all she does...she’s the best!
Wow, wow, wow! We had a blast and everyone bonded. We drank wonderful wines, thank you. We all know it was because of you. A big hug from us all.
In the past 18 months, we have visited Napa Valley twice. Both times Angela has handled our trip with personal care. Everything from the vineyards, hotels, restaurants and limo drivers. We have had one on one tastings with owners of vineyards which made our experience exceptional. Angela takes the time to listen and plan your personal experience. She is the best and we look forward to our next visit to wine country.
...that trip to Napa changed the essence of the way we think about wine, and to date, we measure everything against the wines and wineries we had the privilege to visit. None of us will ever forget the attention to detail and views while we enjoyed our lunch at the winery. Even outside of Napa, you connected us along the coast. Your elegant expertise entertaining us has stayed with us in the fondest of ways. We could not have had a better time and your advice and direction made it truly a trip to remember. You are extraordinary as well as professional in your dealings and your insight into all things Napa is invaluable.
Yes we have been bitten!! Sharon was always a “beach” girl, but one week in Napa changed her! Amazing what a good glass of wine can do! We had an amazing time and can’t wait to come back!
We recently had an event at Whetstone Wine Cellars that Cultured Vine managed and everything was perfect. The property met and exceeded our expectations. My client had been looking for a venue that fit into their weekend-long high-end customer event that they were holding, but still wanted something with an inviting atmosphere. Whetstone is just that - extremely elegant but also embodies the comfortable relaxed vibe of Napa. Raquel was wonderful to work with and was very accommodating of our tight turnaround time and last minute changes. Her recommendations for the evening were spot on. She was very knowledgeable not only about events and what works well in the space, but also about the history of the property and our guests enjoyed interacting with her and learning about Whetstone.
This trip was amazing and by far the best wine experience I have ever had. Every vineyard was amazing in taste and the people have been wonderful.
Angela is my “go to” person for a quintessential Napa Valley experience. I highly recommend her for my wine purchases & experiences in Napa.

May I just say what an amazing trip and experience – the wineries and food and treatment was simply off the charts everywhere we went. This was a first for me hosting this group and while I was hoping for something special…. I had no hopes for what actually ended up with. Folks were moved to tears at some points. Kudos to you and thank you so much!!
Angela, Thank you so much for an amazing weekend. It was truly remarkable. We couldn’t have a more gracious hostess - All our love
Thanks for an unbelievable trip, you are amazing!
Thank you Angela! We had the most amazing trip! We hope you enjoy these gifts as our way of saying thank you!
Angela, Danelle and the team are so knowledgeable and well connected in the valley. They go above and beyond to create intimate and unique experiences with smaller and boutique wineries. They take note of my palate and incorporate a good variety of wine styles and price range from every day to high end wines. They’re absolutely the best to plan Napa and Sonoma visits!
