Arriving to the beautiful Lokoya Winery – about a 15-20 minute drive from downtown St. Helena.
It’s only fitting that for my visit to one of the most luxurious, spectacular wineries in Napa I arrive with this beautiful, Lexus LC 500 H. This was such a fun sporty car to drive during my getaway to Napa. See more about the Lexus LC 500 H here and thanks to the Lexus team for partnering with me on this trip!
About Lokoya Winery
“Established in 1995, Lokoya is a collection of four distinct Cabernet Sauvignons from four of Napa Valley’s most celebrated mountain appellations: Mount Veeder, Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain, and Diamond Mountain. These limited-production wines are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented with native yeast, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, resulting in the purest expression of place.”
A warm welcome to Lokoya Winery with some incredible Ruinart Champagne. This Blanc de Blanc was incredible, extremely dry with delicious, creamy yeast flavors. Such a perfect welcome to Lokoya Winery; the perfect start to a lovely afternoon wine tasting in St. Helena.
The spectacular view you’re welcomed with at Lokoya Winery. This table seats 30 and is truly the center piece of the winery… The recent renovation of this winery (when it turned into Lokoya Winery a few years ago) truly created a magical destination. I was blown away by the architecture and beauty, and learned the architect was one of my favorite in wine country, Howard Backen.
This lookout point is one of the most magical spots I have ever seen at a winery. After visiting 150 – 200 wineries it takes a lot to surprise, delight, and amaze me!
The stunning views from Lokoya into St. Helena. This truly is one of the most magical, beautiful wineries that I have ever experienced.
The spectacular library with views of the tasting room. I enjoyed my tasting at the sofa just outside of this library which was heavenly.
The set up for my incredible Wine Tasting and food pairing.
I love how this menu was customized with my name and the line-up of wines I was going to taste.
Winemaker Christopher Carpenter, who I am still waiting to meet, but after tasting the wines he makes for Lokoya Winery and Cardinale Winery I am beyond impressed with his talents and winemaking style.
The stunning sunset views as I depart Lokoya. Between the beautiful scenery and this spectacular car I was a happy girl exploring Napa’s Wine Country.
