Newton Vineyard Launches Private Guest Experiences at Brasswood St. Helena

St. Helena, Napa Valley, April 7, 2021 —Newton Vineyard now welcomes guests for luxurious, by-appointment tasting experiences at the Brasswood Village in St. Helena. Visitors may choose between a private wine tasting or a private lunch with pairings of Newton’s iconic unfiltered, mountain wines, hosted in Brasswood’s elegant tasting rooms.

This is a first, modest but important step on the journey to move forward from the impact of the 2020 Glass Fire, while the winery on Spring Mountain is rebuilt. In Brasswood, Newton has found an ideal partner: one that shares the same commitment to quality and attention to detail. The Newton team is delighted to once again be able to personally share the passion and craftsmanship behind these wines with enthusiasts.

Newton wines express the terroir of their mountain estates and Carneros vineyards with the ripeness that California brings but with a bright freshness and classic style—a natural fit with Brasswood’s philosophy of farm-to-table comfort food inspired by the bounty of Napa Valley.

The private tasting offers delectable bites paired with four Newton wines, including two single-vineyard wines. The cost is $75 per person (one to six guests maximum) and duration is approximately one hour. 

The private lunch presents a seasonal pairing menu from Brasswood Restaurant with four Newton wines, including two single-vineyard wines. Selections from the 2021 spring menu include mozzarella “a la minute,” seared ahi tuna, creamy wild mushroom risotto, New York steak with truffle butter and more. The cost is $180 per person (one to six guests maximum) and duration is approximately 90 minutes.

About Newton Vineyard

Newton Vineyard was founded in 1977 by English businessman Peter Newton, an eclectic innovator with a pioneering spirit and a deep respect for nature. Peter’s ambitious quest was to create wines that embrace contrasts, delivering a classic freshness and precision while inviting the supple ripeness that Napa’s climate offers. Peter left the valley floor to plant new vineyards on Spring Mountain’s steep hillsides, whose volcanic, well-draining soils would deliver a distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon expression. He also explored Carneros, where the influence of the sea would shape a multidimensional Chardonnay. To unlock the terroir’s full potential, Peter turned to a time-honored Burgundian technique: Unfiltered winemaking. Committed to sustainable practices from the beginning, Newton aims to express nature with precision, pursuing a natural, patient approach in the vineyards and winery. Part of the LVMH portfolio since 2001, Newton continues to champion mountain vineyards and their unfiltered, truthful terroir expression.
