Exclusive Wine Cruise


Hosted by Gregory Barnett, Owner & Winemaker, NABU Wines, Westlake Village, CA

NABU Wines has been an amazing adventure for Greg Barnett. After taking a 3-year break from making wine in Paso Robles, in 2012 Greg was fortunate to be able to pick from local vineyards in the Santa Monica Mountains within the Malibu Coast AVA and later harvest in the Napa Valley to begin his new venture. If you haven’t figured it out already that is why the winery is called NABU. Since his first harvest, Greg’s main focus in Malibu has been producing Red Blends, due to the small yields of varietals harvested from the surrounding vineyards from the ocean to the highest ridges in the mountains. In Napa, NABU is based in St. Helena and produces wine up and down the Valley and now in Mendocino County and will return to producing wine from Paso Robles in harvest 2023. NABU has been voted Best Winery and Wine Tasting in 2022 by The Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily News, and The Ventura County Star.

About the Wine Region – Wachau Valley

Brilliant architectural masterpieces and vine-strung hillsides on the Danube River have inspired artistic creations for hundreds of years. The Romantic Danube journeys through Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary, so you can experience some of the most celebrated wines and sights in Europe’s heartland.

Over 3,700 acres of terraced vineyards rise from Austria’s illustrious Wachau Valley. Located between the towns of Melk and Krems, this cooler-climate wine region brings a wide variety of refreshing, peppery white-grape wines to fruition. Grüner Veltliner is considered to be the most important grape in Austria. Grown in loess soils by the river’s edge, these favored wines offer aromatic stone fruit flavors reminiscent of the terroir. Riesling, the second most popular grape, loves rocky inclines, so it is extensively sewn into the rich hillside. Fruity notes and floral scents surface from these unique whites.
