As if the spectacular scenery of Yosemite National Park weren’t
already heady enough, now you can enjoy the park combined with the
pleasures of wine tasting. Held at the Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite
Vintners’ Holidays will have six sessions: three-day segments start
November 25, December 2 and 9; two-day segments start November 28,
December 5 and 12. Each program spotlights winemakers from several
California wineries. An afternoon reception the first day and panel
discussions on another will be followed by wine tastings; on Tuesday and
Thursday nights, you have the option of attending a vintner’s
dinner ($40 extra).
Cost for the holiday package, based on double occupancy, is $30 per
person at Yosemite Lodge, $47.50 per person at the Ahwahnee. Price
includes lodging, seminars, and tastings (this time of year, a double
room usually costs $47 to $66 at the lodge or $121 at the Ahwahnee).
About 75 to 100 people are expected to attend each session.
