Behind the Scenes of the Winery that American Idol Helped Build:
The Villa San-Juliette Jeep Tour and Tasting
You’ve got to imagine that when the former producers of American Idol built their winery, they weren’t content to be just another tasting room. To that end, they are giving fans of the brand an opportunity to wander behind the curtain and see where all the magic begins.
This week, show host David Wilson is invited to jump into the beautiful, rugged Jeep that is used to take visitors deep into the vineyard with his personal tour guide and driver Dan Smith… who also just happens to be the winemaker at this beautiful estate vineyard.
Guests of Villa San-Juliette Vineyard and Winery are treated to an exclusive views of the 168-acre estate from guided jeep tours while they explore the vineyard, sip award-winning wines and pose for pictures along the way. The scenic hillside views are enhanced by a Tuscan style setting, Mediterranean gardens and scenic wine country views surrounding the villa. The vineyards and winery is the result of the vision of television producers Ken Warwick and Nigel Lythgoe who believe in bringing the best talent together to create remarkable experiences.
“This is just another opportunity for our guests to experience the beauty of our vineyards in a personalized way,” said Dan Smith, Winemaker at Villa San-Juliette Vineyard and Winery. “Villa San-Juliette Vineyard and Winery is the perfect place to spend an afternoon enjoying excellent wines, snacking on small plates from the on-site kitchen and now exploring the vineyard in a jeep with family and friends.”
Join David on the show that loves to take listeners for a ride… literally!
