In general, golfers are known to enjoy the finer things in life - expensive cars, designer threads, exotic vacations, gourmet dining, country club memberships and fine wine, for example. So why not combine two of those activities and make one perfect pairing?

GolfVino is exactly what the name implies - the marriage of an ultimate golf and wine experience. The company was created by PGA Member and Wine Sommelier Greg Anderson, who merged his exclusive access to some of Northern California's elite, private wineries with world-class golf courses in Napa and Sonoma counties.

It’s my perfect day,” said Anderson, a native of the area. “Golf and wine tasting topped with an exquisite dinner. GolfVino allows me to share this mutual passion, and utilize my experience in both the golf and wine industries

GolfVino is ideal for a small group celebrating a special occasion, a company planning a corporate retreat or couples eyeing a vacation destination. Guests will visit a select group of the world's outstanding wineries, enjoy culinary delights by wine country chefs, and stroll the fairways at exclusive country clubs and top resorts.

Tours can be customized to a group's interest, including spa, shopping and horseback riding excursions for non-golfers. GolfVino has contracted with numerous wine country hotels for luxury accommodations that cater to discerning travelers.

A sample tour package includes: (single and multiple day trips sold)

  • Five days of wine tasting and education
  • Five-night stay at a wine country hotel
  • Three days of golf or spa treatment at exclusive private clubs and resorts
  • Daily breakfast and winemakers dinners
  • Access to private winery and vineyard estates
  • Luxury transportation throughout the trip
  • Wine country specialty items
We want our guests to have a memorable experience.” - said Anderson. “Giving people behind the scenes tours - allowing them to really kick the dirt, learn about wine making and the history of the areas, plus have access to properties not available to the public is what makes the GolfVino experience so different from a normal wine tasting tour.”

World re-known wineries such as Cardinale, Stonestreet, Verite, Hartford Family, Freemark Abbey, Matanzas Creek and Arrowood are among the wine tour stops. Spa treatments at Silverado Resort, The Vintners Inn and The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn are a pleasant encounter, and shopping in the quaint towns of Healdsburg or St. Helena are filled with art galleries, specialty shops and boutiques.

And then there is the golf. A special occasion may include Mayacama Golf Club, a members-only, gated retreat, which should be on every golfer's bucket list. But since it is a private golf and lodging club, GolfVino might be your one shot at playing here. 

Rich history, breathtaking scenery, gourmet food, unparalleled wine and extraordinary golf all combine to make one unforgettable indulging experience.
