California’s Wineland drive-through has arrived.
This is the news everyone has been waiting for. The Napa Valley winery, Ashes & Diamonds, has just debuted their Delivery & Drive-Thru, which means the vintage charm and rolling vineyards of the Oak Knoll District can now be enjoyed from the safety of your car.
There’s no denying that wine has been an essential item on everyone’s shopping list since day 1 of the lockdown. With temporary closures, many wineries and wine retailers have successfully transitioned to pickups, deliveries and virtual wine tasting sessions. A&D is no different except, if you opt for the pickup, the drive will involve a slightly more scenic route through the countryside. According to Eater, you roll up a long driveway in your car and cooler boxes will be waiting under a covered stand at your designated pickup time.
Every bottle of wine comes with complimentary snacks, that get incrementally fancier with the number of bottles in your basket. Three or more bottles will get you “Everything” focaccia, Rancho Gordo bean dip, housemade pickles and Cowgirl Creamery Fromage Blanc. If you step it up a notch to 12 bottles, then you’re talking White Sturgeon caviar.
Delivery is available to the following counties:
Napa, Sonoma, Solano, Marin, Contra Costa, Alameda, Santa Clara, San Francisco and San Mateo.
Deliveries or pickup times (11:00 AM – 5:00 PM) can be arranged through Tock.
Always remember to unwind responsibly.
