There’s nothing quite like uncorking a wine in a cave, a colossal wine cellar.The hot new book – “Into The Earth: A Wine Cave Renaissance” – gives you a peek at some of the most striking caves in Napa Valley, some of which are not open to the public.
The 240-page book is written and photographed by Daniel D’Agostini with Molly Chappellet and it’s chronologically organized by cave construction date. It includes stories and images of Napa Valley wineries including Jarvis, Sloan Estate, Far Niente, Schramsberg, BOND and Beringer.
Jarvis is a standout because the entire winery is underground and it has a waterfall in its cave. Surprising? That’s what the construction crew said when it discovered a spring as it was unearthing rock, but the winery owners ultimately decided to play up Mother Nature.
Check out the book and we’ll keep you posted on some upcoming opportunities to sip wine in a cave as they pop up this holiday season. There will be plenty.
