Celebrate Cuvaison’s 50th anniversary as you travel from Napa Valley’s coolest region to the coolest resort in Switzerland.
Founded in 1969, Cuvaison was an early pioneer of the Los Carneros nested appellation, where fog and wind make it the ideal place to grow cool-climate wines. The Schmidheiny family of Switzerland—fourth-generation vintners—purchased the winery in 1979 and immediately acquired 400 acres of highly prized land in Los Carneros to produce vibrant, vineyard-driven wines.
Help celebrate Cuvaison’s 50 years of creativity, craftsmanship and luxury wines with the Schmidheiny family, prominent Swiss industrialists and internationally noted art patrons. Fly business class to Switzerland on Swiss International Air Lines where exclusive service awaits you onboard.Relax in spacious lie-flat seats, savor award-winning cuisine and experience true Swiss hospitality before even landing, where you’ll reside at the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz AG, nestled amidst the stunning foothills of the Alps about an hour outside of Zurich. Relax and recuperate at this leading wellbeing and medical health resort in Europe, consisting of two five-star grand hotels, an exclusive spa, six restaurants, two golf courses, and a casino (and—if needed—a medical center and rehabilitation clinic).
Hosted by a Schmidheiny family member, you’ll dine privately at the one-Michelin-starred, 17-GaultMillau-point Igniv. Rather than a traditional menu, Head Chef Silvio Germann creates up to 30 different dishes to share, paired perfectly with wines. In this one-of-a-kind dining experience, gourmet innovation meets the joy of sharing. Relish more culinary delights with access to one of Switzerland’s most sought-after gourmet food events, the Gourmet Food Festival Gault Millau. During this invitation-only exclusive experience, you’ll stroll from one food stand to another as you meet some of Switzerland’s best chefs and enjoy delicious foods, great wines and a relaxing afternoon.
Indulge your visual sense, with a guided tour of the private Hauser & Wirth family art collection. Founded in 1992 by Ursula Hauser and Iwan and Manuela Wirth, this gallery represents more than 75 artists and estates in a variety of locations throughout the world. The company is known for restoring historic buildings and giving them a new lease on life as contemporary art spaces. Your priceless, invitation-only tour highlights paintings, sculpture, video installations, works on paper and photographs from the personal collections of the founders.
Your Swiss adventure would not be complete without taking home your own masterpiece—an exclusive Swiss watch! Together with the famed Watch manufacture Armin Strom we have created for you, an outstanding and unique mechanical timepiece. A sealed sapphire crystal disc positioned at 5 o'clock captures some rare Cuvaison wine and on the backside, a hand-engraved design of a bunch of grapes decorates the base plate. Tour their factory in Biel, and finish the visit by picking up your one-of-a-kind, bespoke Armin Strom timepiece.
End your celebratory trip with a private, winemaker-led tour of the Schmidheiny family winery. The winery’s vineyard tumbles down the verdant hills in Heerbrugg, flanking the Rhine, where Switzerland and Austria meet. Thomas Schmidheiny was born on the estate, and developed his passion for wine here, which developed into the family’s eventual purchase of Cuvaison in Napa Valley. Toast to Cuvaison’s next 50 years during this fitting finale to your “cool” adventure.
