Napa Valley in northern California is one of the most beautiful places in the world. This region is famous for its rich culture of art and wine. Napa is home to several hundred wineries that produce a wide selection of premium wines. Napa Valley Aloft gives visitors the unique opportunity to witness the diverse and striking geography of this region from a new perspective.

The morning light and sounds create an exceptional atmosphere unlike anything you have experienced before. The flight is followed by a gourmet champagne breakfast for the two of you.

The Napa Valley Aloft crew is happy to fulfill any special requests and make arrangements for an ever more personalized flight.

The Ideal Rebecca Minkoff Accessory for Your #ChandonSquad Celebrations

Own It
BY : Vicki Arkoff | 2017

As a dedicated fan of sparkling wines from Napa Valley, California, this time of year I’m always giddy with anticipation for the annual unveiling of Chandon’s Winter Collection bottles designed by my handbag idol, Rebecca Minkoff. Besides being a fashion goddess, she’s Chandon California Brand Ambassador, so each year she debuts a new graphic—inspired by her signature designs—for Chandon’s holiday bubbles.

This year Minkoff knocked it out of the park with her geometric, holographic foil patterns in winter white and navy with gold and pink metallic. Yes, pink, to match the contents of Chandon California’s new sparkling Rosé—the first Rosé ever released the winery's 44-year history. This pretty sister to the traditional Chandon California Brut really gets me. Both the Brut and the Rosé are limited editions available for just $24 until New Year’s Eve.

But for Happy Hour fashionistas there’s even better news. Chandon has collaborated with Minkoff for a new, limited-edition clutch—the perfect champs accessory to ensure you and your squad toast the season in style. The #ChandonSquad Leo Clutch plays to Chandon's California roots with "I'd Rather be in Napa" scrawled across the front, and #ChandonSquad hand-painted in navy by artist Brian Kaspr on an opal, iridescent leather, mimicking the same effect of the holographic foil on the Winter 2017 bottle design. The #ChandonSquad Leo Clutch is available exclusively via and at the Chandon Winery in Yountville, California.
