The joy of a leisurely day spent in the gracious embrace of Napa Valley's hospitable wine tasting rooms might seem like a pipe dream right about now. But this current lockdown need not prevent us from enjoying the spoils of our northern wine country neighbor. Napa Valley wineries are getting creative, going above and beyond to satisfy and satiate thirsty and hungry customers. Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, (pictured above) for instance, offers curbside service for pickup of its stellar wines and accoutrements, including an artisan cheese and charcuterie box. This iconic winery just celebrated its 50th anniversary - a perfect reason to raise a glass of its CASK 23, S.L.V., FAY, and ARTEMIS labels - each among the most highly-regarded and collected Cabernet Sauvignons in the world. 

 

Add a Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' Sip & Savor box to your curbside pickup wine order. The winery's Chef Travis Westrope has beautifully paired the wines with individually wrapped artisan cheeses and charcuterie. The food pairing, which serves two guests, is packed inside a commemorative two-bottle box and is available for $75 (Club member discounts applicable). Additional pairings, serving two people, are available to add on for $25.
