A Peek Inside Jean-Charles Boisset’s Latest Wine Country Venture

A wine museum/tasting salon, Boisset's latest project is quintessentially Boisset: a 48-light Baccarat crystal Zenith chandelier is the centerpiece.

Wine Country roots run deep. There’s a fascinating story to be told about how this area became one of the premier wine growing regions in the world. But the hows and whys have a knack for getting lost when you’re happily sipping and swirling  away — few are those who can remember the details the sommelier or tasting room server shared.

Prolific Napa Valley entrepreneur and vintner Jean-Charles Boisset is on a mission to make wine lovers a little more savvy. His latest business venture, 1881 Napa – the first wine history museum in Napa Valley – invites visitors to explore the history of the region through a self-guided tour.

“Napa Valley has a powerful place in American wine history and 1881 Napa puts the region in perspective on the world stage,” said Boisset in a press release.

As to be expected from a man known for his flamboyant style, Boisset’s new museum is equal parts informative, entertaining and extravagant. And there’s wine tasting, too. Click through the gallery for a peek inside.

1881 Napa, 7856 St. Helena Highway, Oakville, 1881napa.com. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Reservations are recommended and can be made here.

  1. One year back I made a decision to leave my prior job and I am extremely thrilled nowadays…. I began earning a living via the internet, for a business I located on-line, for just a few hour or so everyday, and I make definitely more than I actually did on my office workplace job… My pay-check for last month was 9,000 $… The most important thing on this is the more spare time I got for my little kids…and that the only requirement for this task is basic typing and having access to broadband… I am also able to spend quality time with my loved ones or friends and also take care of my kids as well as going on a family vacation with them really frequently. Don’t avoid this chance and try to take action quick. Test it out, what it’s about… crawnsit.a-loch.de
