Raymond Vineyards might look like every other winery off the St. Helena Highway, but step inside and you'll be thrust into a riveting, sensory-based experience. Travel down the Corridor of Senses where you can smell complex aromas out of perfumed boxes; step into the Red Room, where walls are layered in velour and fur; or get up close and personal with your vino through a wine blending class, resulting in a unique bottle wrapped in a custom-designed label. And yep, those are mannequins in lingerie you see hanging over the Crystal Cellar. No big deal. Raymond Vineyards offers a number of varietals from their diverse collections, including LVE (a collaboration with John Legend) and their Estate collection.
How to visit: Raymond Vineyards is open seven days a week from 10am to 4pm. A five-wine flight costs $25-$30; no food is served. No appointments necessary for general tastings.
In short: Extravagant, sensory-overload, blend your own wine
