    Redwoods, Wine & Dine

    The bounty of Northern California is on full display in this one-day nature and culinary adventure. The day begins at the magnificent Armstrong Woods and with a walk among trees that soar 300 feet in the sky. This is an unparalleled chance to experience trees that have been around for 1500 years. It is a lesser known Redwood Forest, so the walk is much quieter and less-populated than the more common tourist destination of Muir Woods. We then move on to Kendall-Jackson winery and culinary garden where the farm-to-table culinary movement is in full bloom. We will tour through the gardens that are the source of vegetables and herbs for California’s most prestigious restaurants. Once we’ve seen the incredible offering of the culinary garden, Kendall Jackson’s award-winning chefs will prepare a four-course lunch paired with some of Kendall Jackson’s finest wines. The seasonal menu is designed with the freshest ingredients from the garden along with locally sourced meats and fruits.
