The year was 1976 and the annual Paris Wine Tasting event was in full swing. People from around the world gathered to enjoy the finest wines and to find out who would be crowned as the best of the best. Much to everyone’s surprise, in a victory not unlike Ford’s historic Le Mans finish exactly ten years earlier, California wines took the top spots during a blind tasting by 11 Parisian judges. With the right transportation, you can experience it for yourself over the course of a weekend. And in this case, the easy choice is the Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet.
Like a fine wine, the 911 has been aged to perfection with over one million having been manufactured at Porsche’s Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany site. From an initial sketch in 1959 to the 911’s debut in 1963 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the 911 has continued to evolve and improve. Today, terminology like Carerra, RS, and even the word Turbo have become synonymous with the Porsche 911. The glorious twin turbocharged 3.0 Flat-6 engine in our beautiful 911 produces 370 horsepower and 331 ft. lbs. of torque.
It’s not hard to imagine a weekend with your lovely companion piloting this drop top Night Blue 911 cabriolet from Sonoma, through Napa and up the amazing Monticello Road (Hwy 121) up into the foothills for a beautiful loop around the Vaca Mountain Range. Stop and see the “Old Man Rock” on your way to Sage Canyon Road and then take the time to journey down to Yountville and then head back up towards Healdsburg and we promise that you will experience some of the best that Northern California wine country has to offer. It’s less than 100 miles so take your time and enjoy the wine; we know you will absolutely love the 911.
