HISTORIC
Dossier: You appreciate and celebrate history. You
spend hours (if not days) before a trip researching
information about where you're going, what's
around, and how it's changed over time. You're
the person who engages with on-the-ground
service professionals about details from yesteryear
and their personal relationships with a place's past.
You've never met a museum or ghost winery you
didn't like.
Bottom line: You're wiser than you look. If something isn't at least 100 years old, it's too current
for you.
Wineries: Charles Krug, Schramsberg, Beringer,
Inglenook

EASY GOING
Dossier: You care more about the taste of a wine
than its winemaker, provenance, or pedigree.
You're not a fan of spending big bucks for wines,
unless it's a special occasion. For you, drinking is
a social experience and is best enjoyed with good
friends. You don't remember some of your favorite
wines because ... well ... because you enjoyed
them so much.
Bottom line: You're visiting Napa Valley for the
lifestyle, with a goal to simply have fun and enjoy
the views.
Wineries: Robert Mondavi Winery, Chimney
Rock, V. Sattui, Starmont

ECO
Dossier: You love wine because it comes from the
earth. The concept of terroir resonates with you
on a fundamental level. You practice recycling and
composting at home. You've read all the latest
information about climate change, and regularly
tell your friends what they can do to combat the
effects. You always make time on vacation to commune with nature and watch wildlife.
Bottom line: Conservation, sustainability, organics,
and biodynamic farming speak to you loud and
clear.
Wineries: Honig, CADE, Silver Oak, Long Meadow Ranch, St. Supéry

Stags' Leap Winery

ADVENTURESOME
Dossier: You love the rush of adrenaline pumping
in your veins. You often seek offbeat and extreme
activities wherever you travel. As you experience
new things in life, you're constantly thinking about
how to describe, document, and share them on
social media.
Bottom line: You live hard and play hard, even on
vacation. Unique experiences can be more intoxicating than wine.
Wineries: The Hess Collection, Sterling Vineyards,
Raymond Vineyards, Swanson Vineyards, Clif
Family

DID YOU KNOW? Be a mid-week warrior. A trip to Napa Valley during the work week isn't just
plain fun (wine tasting on a Wednesday), but the crowds are generally lower compared to the weekends.

Meet the
Winemaker

Jeff Owens

Odette Estate
Winery, NAPA
Jeff Owens never set out
to become a winemaker.
In college, he was a horticulture major who imagined a career in golf course
design and maintenance.
Then a friend tipped him
off to viticulture. He took a
class, was hooked, and the
rest is history.
After an internship at
Cakebread Cellars, Owens
worked at PlumpJack and
CADE before arriving at
Odette when it opened in
2012. That year proved to
be a good one, as Owens
grabbed a 100-point score
from Robert Parker on his
first wine, the 2012 Odette
Estate Reserve Cabernet
Sauvignon.
"Never in my wildest
dreams did I think I would
score 100 out of the gate,"
he says. Owens describes
his winemaking style as
"modern," and he leans
heavily on terroir to guide
decision-making. He aims
to create wines with "wide
drinking windows" that
customers can appreciate
now or lay down for later.
