Are you eager to explore Cuba, and uncover the island nation’s fascinating history, culture and art? Well, you really need a guide. And we’ve got you covered.

We prime the pump with VIP passes to the culinary extravaganza known as the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival. You’ll spend three days at this world-renowned festival, which brings some of the country’s most famous chefs to South Beach’s sandy shores. On your plate are passes to the most exclusive events including a tribute dinner to honoree Bobby Flay.

Then you’ll fly to Havana, where your gracious hosts will be two extraordinary Cuban musicians and dear Festival Napa Valley friends: Aldo López-Gavilán and Daiana García.  You’ll explore Old Havana in a vintage convertible with a private guide on hand. You’ll learn about the place and culture that inspired countless artists and produced some of the musical greats of our time.

In addition to sumptuous nightly dinners at private restaurants and estates, Daiana and Aldo will treat you to a very special private concert and dinner in their home. It doesn’t get more exclusive than this.
