Wine & Food

Reserve Tasting at The Villa

This former Trefethen family residence, built in the early 1900s, is a fine example of the Arts and Crafts Movement in California. Surrounded by gorgeous gardens, the Villa is now home to Trefethen’s Reserve Tasting experience. After checking in at the Historic Winery, guests are escorted to the Villa for this tasting of limited-production wines, including our award-winning Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. The inclusion of a charcuterie board with cured meats, local cheeses, and our own estate grown preserves provides a delightful experience of balanced flavors, enhancing the enjoyment of these special wines.
