The World's Quirkiest Adult Camps
Sonoma and Napa, California
Why it's fun: The Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines Crush Camp allows wine lovers to get out in the vineyard with winemakers for three days to harvest, crush, and blend wine and be an integral part of the process from vine to table. The weekend unfolds as campers follow their grapes to the crusher, helping to sort them, roll barrels, and ultimately blend their own wine (while learning about the importance of terroir and barrel selection). Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines Executive Chef Joey Altman leads the group to prepare a harvest dinner.
Who goes: Wine aficionados, foodies, business owners, even a landscape designer (who loved hearing all about terroir).
Great add-on: Visit the new Oxbow Public Market in Napa, experience a hot-air balloon ride, or take in the di Rosa Preserve, considered one of the most significant collections of Bay Area art in the world.
Price: Around $950 per person for two nights and four meals
