However, donating member spends the majority of summer and fall in Cashiers. No guest play on Fridays, Saturdays, or around holidays.

Sourced from select hillside estates, the Cabernet Sauvignon wines of BOND vividly demonstrate the range of Napa Valley's finest terroirs. From the more than eighty vineyards Harlan has worked with over the past quarter century, he slowly and vigilantly selected five sites with the potential to define the ‘Grand Crus’ of Napa Valley for BOND. A wine from each site is included in these beautiful sets.
