Hugh & Monique Davies, along with the Schramsberg and Davies team, are excited to be able to announce our newest Vintner Trip to Aspen, Colorado.
We are once again partnering with Food & Wine Trails, who have worked with us in delivering two very successful Vintner Cruises over the years, to plan a Vintner Ski Trip in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.
This four-night program offers a fantastic culinary and cultural experience, including two Schramsberg wine receptions, a wine seminar and a winemaker’s dinner.
Upon arrival at the Aspen airport your car and driver will be waiting to transfer you directly to your hotel, the Hotel Jerome, located steps from the heart of Aspen. The hotel elegantly blends the comfort, convenience and understated luxury of today’s finest Aspen boutique hotels with an authentic mountain aesthetic and spirit. Each room is a luxurious 525 square foot deluxe king accommodation with daily breakfast in the hotel’s Prospect restaurant.
For this program, we have planned an exclusive J. Schram vertical tasting seminar. J. Schram is our very best Chardonnay-focused sparkling wine, featuring a combination of base wines fermented in stainless steel and in barrels. In addition to the barrel lots, each bottle of J. Schram receives an extended amount of time resting on the lees in our historic Diamond Mountain caves, where it develops additional complexity over the years. Stunning upon release, these bottlings improve greatly over time, supported with bright acidity and impressive fruitful flavors. Hugh and Monique are excited to share these bottles with you, offering an experience that very few people have the chance to receive.
Also included is an intimate wine-paired dinner with your hosts at Aspen’s iconic Piñons restaurant. Piñons is known for its innovative cuisine and casual sophistication, making this reservation one of the most coveted in Aspen for the last 28 years. The dinner will be featuring wines from both Schramsberg & Davies Vineyards, and will truly be a meal to cherish.
In addition to the winery sponsored events, Food & Wine Trails has also researched additional activities that can be booked during your time in Aspen. These activities range from downhill and Nordic skiing, to dogsledding, to fat bike rentals. Or, take advantage of the Aspen shopping scene or an Auberge Anthology Signature spa treatment at the hotel.
This trip is limited to the number of guests we can have participate, so we expect that it will sell out quickly.
We look forward to sharing this experience with you.
