Join us for this “insider’s” tour, limited to just 14 attendees, to Napa Valley’s elite small wineries, great kitchens, and homes. Hugh is your teacher for three of the participation cooking classes and your host for every event throughout the week. All the recipes are based on his 16 cookbooks. The programs are created for travelers who want to combine a learning vacation with free time to pursue their own interests while in Napa Valley. More than 1,700 food and wine lovers have attended “camps” during the last 24 years, and many are returning “graduates.” Between our scheduled events, you’ll have time to take the “cure” at a luxurious spa, visit artists’ studios, explore the historic towns of Yountville and St. Helena, and dine at Napa Valley’s great restaurants. Join us for an opening night party at our home, and then treat yourself to five more days in one of the world’s great wine and food regions.

How to get to Napa: Napa Valley is approximately 50 miles northeast of San Francisco. If you fly into San Francisco (or Oakland or Sacramento, the closest airports), we recommend you rent a car at the airport. We will provide you with hotel information and directions.
