Be The Count Wine Blending Experience at Buena Vista Winery
Who would like to be The Count or Countess? You will be at the Buena Vista Winemaker for a Day: ‘Be the Count’ experience. In this 90-minute, once in a century session we will guide you through the art of blending as Count Agoston Haraszthy would have over 100 years ago. Enter our beautiful blending cave to create a personalized bottle of red wine that the count could have only dreamed to blend. You will play with Zinfandel, Merlot and our mixed reds. Find the perfect palate then bottle, cork, foil and label your bottle. You will design your own label and leave with a newly branded wine tailored to your masterful palate. The best part is you can order as many cases as you desire - See more at: www.buenavistawinery.com
Serengeti Treks at Safari West
Participants can go wild with the Safari West Serengeti Trek, a 90-minute trek led by experienced guides that brings guests face to face with giraffes, rhinos, monkeys and more. After experiencing the safari by transport vehicle, guests walk through the sanctuary’s bird aviary in route to see more four-legged friends. Group Trek Tours are held for gatherings of a minimum of 20 to a maximum of 60 people. For more information: go to www.safariwest.com/groups or call 707-566-3613.
Culinary Adventures at Ramekins Culinary School, Events + Inn
A hands-on private cooking class is our signature event.

You can turn it into a competition with who turns out the best dish! For more information go to: www.ramekins.com
