A LUXURY CARIBBEAN COLLABORATION
Wine in the BVI
During the first program, from November 4-5, 2022, guests will learn about the principles of winemaking: understanding the process from vineyard to bottle. The partner vineyard, HALL Wines, will have its team lead discussions about Napa Valley Appellations, terroir and agriculture. Guests will also be invited to a fruit-forward workshop, identifying similarities between HALL wine grapes and the various tropical fruits from the Guana Island orchard. The first program is ideal for those who are curious about learning more about high-end wines, with a more general approach to HALL’s winemaking process.
If November is too soon, and we don’t think it is ever too soon for wine on a private island, the second program, from April 14-15, 2023, might be a better fit for you. It will be a natural continuation from the November session. Led by Vice President of Winemaking for HALL, Megan Gunderson, this is a more technical program that will include in-depth discussions surrounding the art of winemaking, Gunderson’s style, as well as a more technical review of the blending process. Gunderson will also offer private 1:1 wine tasting experiences for guests hoping to learn more, including details about specific vintages, regions of Napa Valley, or wines from cooler vineyard sites. The second session offers guests the chance to take an intimate look at the winemaking process from one of the top winemakers in the United States, while being surrounded by pure Caribbean luxury in the British Virgin Islands.
Both programs in the series will include tastings of Cabernet Sauvignon wines, an intimate al fresco tasting dinner with wine pairings, one-on-one educational sessions, and a visit to the island’s four acre orchard to taste the island’s fresh-off-the-vine produce.
The programs are open to wine-connoisseurs as well as those who simply want to sip world-class wines in a tropical setting; HALL wines offered during the immersive experience will be available to order throughout the program. Additionally, guests can learn about the HALL Wine Club Membership program, one of the most popular Cabernet wine clubs available in the luxury market.
Made up of two complementary programs that can be purchased individually or together, all activities and meals are included in the cost of the stay. Rates start at $945/night, which includes all activities.
