Vineyard 7 & 8 Napa Wine Weekend Event at Brush Creek Ranch

Winemaker Weekend with Wesley Steffens, Vineyard 7 & 8

Enjoy a weekend of wine, culinary, and artistry with winemaker Wes Steffens at the luxury, all-inclusive Brush Creek Ranch. “Seven” being a number of luck in western culture, while “eight” follows the meanings of prosperity and happiness in eastern culture — Vineyard 7 & 8 is the culmination of the family’s pursuit of producing fine wines. In the early 1980s, the Steffens Family planted eight acres of each Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay atop Spring Mountain in Napa Valley, where they continue to sustainably grow premium grapes and craft wines with a true sense of place.
