32. Dreaming of Dakota Shy


Dakota Shy grew out of the passion that friends and colleagues Todd Newman and Tom Garrett have for the wines, history, and vineyards of Napa Valley. After years of working together at Revana Family Vineyard under the tutelage of Napa Valley winemaking legends Heidi Barrett and Thomas Brown, these two friends set out with a determination to create a world-class estate of their own. Produced in limited quantities, their handcrafted wines reflect the highest expression of the vintage.

Longtime friend and DCWAF supporter, Todd Newman of Dakota Shy invites four couples to visit his wine estate located in the heart of Napa Valley for four nights. Beautiful redwoods and magnolias dot the estate along with six acres of Italian and Spanish olives from which Dakota Shy presses their own olive oil. This secluded, yet central, location makes this the perfect base for your time in Napa as you spend your days tasting your way through one of the nation’s most respected wine regions. During your stay, spend an afternoon indulging in a private lunch at the estate winery.           

This Lot Includes:

  • 4-night stay at Dakota Shy’s private guest house for 4 couples
  • Private lunch at the estate winery for 4 couples
