Wine On Location: Meet Our New Team Members & 2022 Tour Dates

Having a professionally curated wine tasting in your own home or local setting is a relaxing, fun, and safe way to learn about and experience the virtues of world-class wines.

Jessup Cellars, one of the best wineries in Yountville, is located in the heart of Napa Valley Wine Country. The winery staff includes a knowledgeable team of educators experienced in conducting on-site wine tastings. These professionals will help organize your on-location affair, provide the wines, and then proceed to engage and inform guests about the winemaking art, lead a true wine tasting adventure, suggest the perfect wine and cheese pairings, and provide a delightful experience for all.

Throughout each year, Jessup Cellars professionals travel the entire nation to deliver excellent in-home or on-site wine tasting experiences to individual homes or other locations. Hosts may invite friends, family, or business associates to participate in this enjoyable experience of wine tasting, food pairings, and conversation.

Beyond the wine tasting experience, a Jessup Cellars professional will get creative by collaborating with you on themes, recipes and even offer ideas from chefs to recreate the perfect pairings at home!
