The Bennett Lane Proposal Package
As one of the highest rated small family wineries nestled at the top of the Napa Valley, Bennett Lane Winery is the ideal venue to plan the perfect proposal.
Romance and surprise are key!
Our proposal experience is tailored for you and your special someone with our host playing a pivotal role. The tour and wine tasting are portrayed as a visitor appointment, and your bride or groom-to-be is completely unaware of the romantic surprise to come.
You will be greeted by one of our hosts and seated in our reserve seating area. After a private tasting of our award winning wines, you will enjoy a relaxing walk through our vineyards, learn some of the interesting details about grape growing, and get a sneak peek at winemaking. The tour ends full circle back in our tasting room.
During the wine tasting, our host will discretely determine which of our wines your partner favors. This special choice, along with two glasses will be set up on a linen covered table at the "proposal pergola", a beautiful, private, vine covered gazebo overlooking the mountains and vineyards.
At that point, it is up to you. The team gives you privacy to propose.
Our professional photographer arrives ahead of you and walks the property, finding the ideal shooting locations while you are on tour. They get a good vantage point and take pictures from a far when you are proposing. You won't even know they are there, because they will seem like a visitor sipping wine in the garden. After the proposal, the photographer introduces themselves and you can stage the proposal again a few times to get the ultimate photograph. A full proposal shoot will follow at the pre-selected sites around the vineyards and winery.
The whole experience generally takes around two hours.
The Bennett Lane proposal package is the most exclusive in the Napa Valley, and includes a wine tasting and tour, proposal set-up, pre-selected bottle of wine, photo shoot, keepsake images presented on CD or flash drive, Bennett Lane Wine Club membership, and your first club shipment.
The price for this proposal package starts at around $2000. We have many ways to customize your special day by adding chocolates, floral arrangements, or our own sparkling Blanc de Noirs. We also partner with wonderful local boutique hotels and B&Bs and can assist with lodging recommendations if you would like to extend your stay in Calistoga.
