In its first Auction Napa Valley offering, Alejandro Bulgheroni Estate will seduce you with travel to the winegrowing regions of Napa Valley, Mendoza, Argentina and Garzón, Uruguay.
Two couples will visit Alejandro Bulgheroni Estate in Napa Valley for a private blending session with winemaker Philippe Melka and consultant Michel Rolland. You will learn their winemaking secrets and enjoy a dinner paired with wines from Alejandro’s properties around the world, personally selected by the estate’s President and Master Sommelier Gilles de Chambure. A two-night stay at the exceptionally designed and elegantly appointed Bardessono hotel in Yountville, California will provide a soft landing spot for your Napa Valley repose. Recommended scheduling for this portion of the lot is the week of Auction Napa Valley 2016.
Next up: Buenos Aires, where you will transfer to your private aircraft for the flight to Alejandro's Bodega Vistalba in Mendoza where partner Carlos Pulenta will host you for an exclusive tour and Argentinian asado barbeque. A visit to Michel Rolland's Bodega Rolland at Clos de la Siete follows, with a three-night stay at Bodega Vistalba’s luxurious inn, dramatically framed by the Andes Mountains, showing you the best of this majestic landscape.
Board your private aircraft for the trip to Uruguay and Bodega Garzón, located near Punte del Este, the Riviera of South America. Bodega Garzón, the first LEED-certified winery outside North America, reflects Alejandro's first venture in the wine business. In a rare invitation, you’ll dine with Mr. Bulgheroni at El Garzón for a meal prepared by internationally acclaimed television personality and cookbook author Chef Francis Mallmann. Blend your own olive oil at Colinas de Garzón, an olive mill founded by Alejandro and his wife Bettina, and named one of the world’s top ten olive mills by World’s Best Olive Oils. Play through your time in Uruguay with a spectacular round of golf with Angel Cabrera, winner of the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters Tournament at Alejandro’s private golf course, designed by Mr. Cabrera.
As a treasured memento of your Bulgheroni adventure, you’ll be among the first to receive a 3-liter bottle of the first-vintage (2014) of Alejandro Bulgheroni Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
