Amici Cellars Wine Week Package
How about a vacation where your souvenir is 288 bottles of wine (or rather, the promise of those bottles of wine). That's the offer from Amici Cellars. John and Sharon Harris of Amici Cellars rent out two villas, one in St. Emilion in Bordeaux and one in Napa Valley. Both are available for rent for $25,000 to $36,000 a month rent, depending on the season. They also offer a special package during harvest season (usually September and October). Their seven-day package in Napa includes seven nights at the Domaine Beau Soleil villa (check out the view from the pool above), hands-on wine making instruction, harvesting, private winery tours, food and wine pairing lessons and even spa treatments. At the end of your week, you leave and your Amici Cellars, Single-Designated Hillside Jericho Canyon Cabernet stays for 18-24 months where it rests in French oak barrels. Once your wine is ready it will be specially labeled and bottled with your name on it. The package sells for $32,000.
