Champagne and roses are Mother’s Day traditions – exemplary ways to show mom that extra thanks and love on her special day. With the garden at Korbel Champagne Cellars open for the 2015 season you can give her both the gift of champagne and roses with the ultimate Mother’s Day treat.
Among Sonoma County’s top visitor destinations for more than 30 years, Korbel Garden features a colorful palette of rare and exotic plants from around the world. A highlight of the garden is its collection of more than 100 varieties of roses, including a Lamarque rose that has been growing next to the historic Korbel House since the 1880s. Adding to the garden’s beauty are plants that attract native butterflies, including Monarchs, Pipevine Swallowtails and Anise Swallowtails. Korbel Garden is just one of the pleasures of a visit to Korbel Champagne Cellars, pleasures that include sampling Korbel California champagne at the tasting room, touring the cellars, and enjoying a gourmet lunch or snack at the delicatessen.
On Sunday, May 10th, Korbel Champagne Cellars will celebrate Mother’s Day from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with “specially created for mothers” Korbel Garden tours, a gift of a rose in full bloom and special discounts at the wine shop.
