The Pritchard Hill Hike & Flight

Greg Melanson’s Pritchard Hill vineyard is prime real estate for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Perched approximately 1500 feet above the valley floor. The vineyard shares august neighbors: across from Colgin and adjacent to Continuum and OVID.

It’s a stunningly rugged site that is usually not open to the public, however Greg is allowing TOR to bring a small number of people to his top-of-the-world vineyard  to enjoy the magnificent view and ,if you wish, hike its steep grade to better understand the nuances of Pritchard Hill Cabernet–truly at its prime under Tor and winemaker, Jeff Ames, capable hands.

After a heart pumping vineyard walk or leisurely viewing, you return for a tasting of TOR’s Grand Dames Chardonnays, followed by 2015, 2016 and 2017 of TOR’s spectacular Melanson Cabernets paired with small bites. The fine print: Comfortable walking shoes are suggested. The hike can be easily tailored to various fitness levels.

$200 per person. We can offer a picnic or lunch for a slight additional cost.

You are personally hosted for an exclusive tour of the haloed soils of the legendary Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, and  To Kalon, then to Vine Hill Ranch vineyards by David Grega, our Associate Winemaker of six years.
