Secret Garden Tour
The Secret Garden tour begins with an hour-long exploration of Jacobsen Orchards, an idyllic, 1.3 acre oasis hidden smack in the middle of a residential community, about 5 minutes from the Hill Family Estate tasting room in downtown Yountville. The verdant plot brims with more than 120 different kinds of fruit trees, including 10 varieties of figs, 10 varieties of pears, 15 varieties of peaches, and dozens of other unusual fruits, plus hundreds of vegetables, herbs and culinary flowers. Highlights include tastings of fresh-plucked things like peach leaves, which when crushed smell like amaretto. Guests will also discover pineapple guava blossoms, miniature white strawberries and of course free-range, farm raised certified organic snails that are used by the French Laundry restaurant for escargot.
Our garden tours are $65 per person and include a VIP wine tasting paired with prosciutto, cheese and a freshly baked Bouchon Bakery baguette. Payment will be taken at the time of reservation. If it is necessary to cancel your reservation or make any changes, we will need 48 hours advance notice.
Limited to 6 guests and advanced reservations are required. Due to the nature of this tour, children under the age of 5 will not be permitted.
The tours are offered on a seasonal basis (June-October) and can be scheduled by calling: 707-944-9580.
