#LaCremaWines Estate at Saralee’s Vineyard has a story worth hearing. Their historic barn was converted into a multi-level tasting room and is now a premier destination for wine education, culinary exploration and enjoying art in the wine country.

Pictured is the interior of the tasting room. The downstairs is open to the public and the upper floors are for members and groups. Its recent acquisition has made for a trendy place to go, the tastings are fun primarily because of the highly attentive staff. Go, have fun…join the club for exclusive member on-line events, slightly discounted pricing and, by all means, take the jeep tour. It’s a barrel of laughs…all of it.

WHAT WE LIKE about #LaCremaWines is the amazing experience you have as a Diamond member. If you want to have the experience of being “the big man on campus”…they make sure that Diamond members feel uber special without making any other club members feel “less”. The views from the “clubhouse” are gorgeous and the staff, absolutely stellar.

BUT HERE WERE ARE, SAVING THE BEST FOR LAST…There are certain wine club memberships worth having. #LaCremaWines is hosting a Mediterranean Wine Cruise Sept 8-18 2017 from Barcelona to Barcelona on Oceania Cruises Riviera, including air. This once-in-a-lfetime experience pairs well with living life to the fullest and will be had with Steve Falk, CEO of Sonoma Magazine (one of our favorites) and with Hartford Family Winery. JOY. It’s pricey, but what else do we do with all that retirement wealth we saved, right? What’s not to love if you can comfortably afford $4300 per person, everything included.
