Thank you very much for your interest in tasting the wines of Modus Operandi Cellars.
We absolutely love making new friends and sharing the story of how our winemaker, as a 24 year old waiter in Dallas, followed his passion and dream of making wine in Napa.
We look forward to meeting you!
Modus Operandi Cellars produces just a small hand full of wines… considered the boutique of boutique…
And for that reason, tastings are only granted to mailing list subscribers, however requesting a tasting will add you to our mailing list.
Tastings are by appointment only and it is a good idea to request your tasting a bit in advance so that we can make time for you.
A small clip from a recent tasting…
Use the expandable menu below to learn about our 4 tasting experience options.
Our classic experience…
Super laid back and unpretentious… relax in a beautiful and private environment learning the history of the brand, hear stories of wine country, peer behind the curtain of the wine industry… and of course enjoying 4 to 5 current vintage Modus wines.
Our Director of Hospitality, Caitlyn McCormick will take wonderful care of you.
$70 per person (credit card required as place holder, nothing billed at the time of scheduling). A curated cheese platter is available at $25 per couple.
*Fee is waived with 6 bottle per person purchase or 1 wine club membership per couple.
Want to hang with and create a personal relationship directly with the Winemaker?
Enjoy all of the above from the Classic Tasting, only hearing it directly from our Winemaker and owner, Jason Moore.
Jason is a skilled storyteller and has a knack for exuding an air of warmth and comfort that is rare in the more often introverted winemaking community.
His story is truly an “American Dream” come true, kind of story.
$150 per person (4 person min)*
A curated cheese platter is available at $25 per couple.
*Fee is waived with 12 bottle per person purchase or 1 elite club membership per couple.
**Tasting fee is pre-paid to secure reservation
Modus is a member of a private – members only cooking club in downtown Napa.
Our guests will enjoy a 4-5 course meal (paired with our wine) that we cook together, behind the line in a professional kitchen and under our chef’s supervision. About 20% of the evening is spent in the kitchen getting personal instruction from the chefs as we all work together learning new cooking techniques… its a ton of fun, educational, and VERY memorable. The menu can be custom built to be as simple or as extravagant as is desired. We usually plan a passed amuse bouche, salad course, mid course, main dish (all family style), and desert if desired.
All Modus Operandi wines of the evening are paired to your menu and are included in the all inclusive price… all you can drink (if you can keep up with Jason).
$250 per person
Requests for this experience must be received a minimum of 1 week prior to the proposed requested date for this experience… more advanced planning is highly recommended for availability and for menu design.
4 person minimum.
Not available Monday or Tuesday as the club is closed.
Serious inquiries only… email [email protected] for booking request
