    While in Napa, time seems to suspend itself as we create enduring memories that will last a lifetime, even though we are aware that it continues its onward march. On the eve of the New Year, we raise our glasses to life, history, exceptional wine, cherished moments, and the sheer joy of living in the present. This extraordinary experience encapsulates all of this and more, reminiscent of the momentous year of 1976 when Stag's Leap Winery and Chateau Montelena triumphed in a blind wine tasting in Paris, France, claiming the top honors for their Cabernet and Chardonnay. This victory solidified Napa's standing as a world-class wine region. The mastermind behind the award-winning Chardonnay was none other than Mike Grgich, who will be celebrating his 100th birthday in 2023. To commemorate this milestone, we invite you to embark on a 6-hour journey on New Year's Eve, indulging in a tasting of the iconic wines that pay homage to the renowned "Judgement of Paris" in '76. The excursion includes a sumptuous 3-course gourmet meal aboard our meticulously restored 1915 Pullman train cars, followed by a 2-hour celebration at Mike Grgich's esteemed winery in Rutherford. We will conclude our unforgettable voyage with a sparkling wine toast, celebrating our victory over the French in this momentous blind tasting at precisely 3 pm local time in Napa, coinciding with midnight in France. And as we make our way back to the station, the rhythmic sway of the train will accompany our joyous dancing.
