The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay has joined with Randall Grahm on his crowdfunding campaign for Estate Vineyard Project at Popelouchum. The northern California ocean front resort is supporting Grahm’s campaign to raise $350,000 for breeding 10,000 new grape varieties onsite at the vineyard.

Grahm’s goal is to create a truly unique, superior and nuanced wine, a “Grahm Cru,” an expression of the unique terroirs of our Popelouchum Estate in San Juan Bautista. His plan is to adopt a very unusual methodology – breeding of 10,000 new grape varieties, each genetically distinctive from one another – and blending them into a unique cuvée that has never been tasted before.

The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay is supporting the campaign with an exclusive overnight experience that includes:

  •     One night stay in The Ritz-Carlton Suite at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay
  •     A welcome amenity of a bottle of Bonny Doon Syrah
  •     The opportunity to have a new, never-before seen (or tasted) grape variety named after you
  •     Dinner for two in Navio
  •     Lunch for two in The Conservatory
  •     Wine tasting for two in ENO Wine Bar
  •     Couples massage in The Ritz-Carlton Spa
  •     Resort Fee and Overnight Valet Parking

Only two of these exclusive experiences are being offered and are priced at $2,995.

“Join me on a journey of discovery to change the way we grow grapes, to change the way we think about vineyards, to perhaps discover an entirely new vinous expression, and to maybe even get a unique grape variety named after you,” says Randall Grahm.

The exclusive experience from The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay and other experiences are only available on the Popelouchum Vineyard: 10,000 Grapes for a New Wine crowdsourcing site until August 20, 2015.
