This romantic offering is available beginning February 14, 2014 and includes luxurious accommodations at the JW Marriott San Francisco with its breathtaking views; a bottle of Buena Vista Winery Sparkling Brut and chocolate amenity for two; and a VIP winemaking experience at Buena Vista Winery.

The wine adventure begins with a glass of sparkling wine in the Bubble Lounge in the historic Champagne Caves at Buena Vista winery. Couples will enjoy a romantic picnic lunch for two at the winery, wine caves or outdoors on the beautiful grounds. The highlight of the day is the winemaking session to craft your signature blend.

During the 90-minute winemaking session couples will create their own blend using Zinfandel, Merlot, and other red varietals. After crafting the wine you can personalize it with your own custom wine label. At the end of the winemaking session you will receive a bottle of your wine with the ability to order as many additional bottles at that time or in the future.

Buena Vista Winery is California’s first premium winery founded in 1857 by Count Agoston Haraszthy. The Champagne Caves have reopened after 30 years of dormancy and an extensive structural renovation. Guests can enjoy sipping a glass of bubbly in the Bubble Lounge, taking a tour and participating in a hands-on wine blending program.
