  • JCB Lounge at Raymond $75.00/ppGROUP SIZE 2 - 10

    Daily

    What if we could capture style and hold it in a bottle? What if heritage and promise could be entwined?

She gave us excellent instructions and left us to our own devices to create our perfect blend.

She was personal, got to know each of us on a first name basis, we got to know a bit about herself, and her enthusiasm for the history of Raymond and the Napa Valley wine industry was exceptional. We loved the selected wines for tasting with the big finish of the Generations Cab!

The two ladies that helped us,were very nice however, it felt as though we were forgotten about. I would say that the time between the pourings were 20 minutes or longer.
