Come join us at Moldova Restaurant and Café for a unique experience where you get to be a “winemaker for a day” (well, at least a couple hours!). This experience is the most luxurious option when visiting the award-winning Raymond Vineyards in Napa Valley, where it is $175/person before flight and hotel expenses. For the first time ever, we are offering the same experience, closer to home, and without having to deal with TSA.

Explore your creativity and craft your very own Napa Valley Red Blends. You’ll see firsthand how new oak affects a finished wine and discover what characteristics different varietals add to your blend. The experience includes FOUR Raymond Napa Valley "Component Wines", including (1) neutral oak cabernet sauvignon, (2) new oak cabernet sauvignon, (3) merlot, and (4) cabernet franc. Additionally, you’ll have graduated cylinders, measuring pipettes, and blending worksheets to record your work.

If you enjoy wine tastings, wine blending is truly a next-level experience! But, as sometimes it’s even more fun to even further “one-up”, after you’ve perfected YOUR blend, you’re able to order it (quantities of 6 or 12 bottles) AND can even add your own personalized label. After all, it is YOUR blend!

While the focus is on the wine, there will be a number of Moldovan stand out appetizers available throughout for small plates (the winemaking “stuff” will take up much of the table space). Dessert will also be served.

There are a limited number of spots available and we will sell out. No refunds but tickets are transferable (please just let us know). Please send any questions to stephen@stephenuncorked.wine
