VIRTUAL ROAD TRIP + WINE TASTING: CALIFORNIA

Virtual Road Trip & Wine Tasting

From the creators of Escape to Shape: Adventures in Wellness, comes Escape Artists: Luxury Travel Advisors, ready to make all of your private travel dreams come true.

Escape Artists invites you us on a Virtual California Coast Road Trip + Real Wine Tasting. Thursday, October 15th @ 7pm Eastern Time.

On this live Zoom event we will discover the diverse beauty of California’s landscapes and enjoy three excellent wines selected by Sommelier Andrea Morris of New York’s Union Square Hospitality Group. Erica Gragg of Escape Artists will share travel tips, hotel highlights and hidden secrets of the region to round out your next California Road Trip!

Andrea Morris will guide us through three West Coast New Wave Wines. These bottles are not your typical California grapes- they are from lesser-seen regions, picked earlier, and made with less new oak. These style hallmarks lead to great values and excellent adventures! Our first wine is an elegant Rosé from the Santa Rita Hills near Santa Barbara, next up is a crisp Gruner Veltliner from Santa Cruz & finally a bright Gamay red wine made in Sonoma County.

There is no cost to join the Escape Artists Virtual Road Trip: California. If you would like to experience the wines throughout the tasting, which we highly recommend for those that drink wine, they are available for purchase through Harker House Wines. Wine quantities are limited, so please RSVP HERE or at erica@escapeartiststravel.com ASAP so we can reserve your space & check to see if there is still time to get the wine to you and. We ask that you please RSVP even if you do not plan to purchase the wines.

For those that are interested, total cost of the three California tasting bottles and shipment to a New York State address is $96 from Harker House Wine & Spirits in Dutchess County, NY.

Need wine shipment outside of New York State? We will put you in touch with Hal at Harker House Wines to discuss shipment rate.

Please note that you are welcome to participate, even if you do not order the wines or drink. This will be a flavor-full 45 minutes of conversation & connection.

Feel free to invite friends & spread the word!
