Welcome to Undiscovered Napa!

In our own words… a bit about who we are:


Charles Kimball


Having been in the service industry since sixteen, I know guest satisfaction is the ultimate goal. My years of expertise have been in fine wines, gourmet food and event management from four to four hundred guests.


My portfolio includes working on presidential campaigns in New Hampshire to weddings in a beautifully restored barn in Sonoma with two rented Clydesdale horses standing at the entrance - just for effect!  I spent ten years with Chaminade in Santa Cruz, an exclusive executive conference center high on the hill over looking Monterey Bay. Duties there ranged from managing a fine dining room to Team Building Workshops for companies that were looking to bond their employees with trust and a better understanding of each other.  When dealing with corporate clients with the goal of improving your bottom line and interpersonal relationships, we ensure your time and money is well spent and produces results.


World travel is my personal passion. From my own experience I understand time away from work and the stresses of daily life should be full of a wonderful blend of relaxation, sumptuous food, fine wine, invigorating conversation, reinvigorating activities and lessons in life.  This is what we offer at "Undiscovered."


The last several years of my life has centered around living in the finest wine region in America.  I have made many good friends and have built professional relationships with numerous people in these two beautiful valleys, from wait-staff in the finest restaurants to the owners of the most famous and prestigious vineyards in Napa and Sonoma.  I work in partnership with Melissa Teaff Catering of Napa.  Together, we can guarantee your wine and dining experience - from the finest wine cave in which to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime dinner to the most beautiful wineries and vistas Napa and Sonoma have to offer. With Melissa Teaff Catering we ensure you will have access to the best locations for your private events. Through my years of working with the restaurant Press in St. Helena I have developed relationships with winery owners and wine makers that only occur with the one-on-one relationship built by serving fine food and fine wine daily.  Every night of the week we serve the "Royalty of Napa Valley." These winery owners, winemakers and the movers-and-shakers all have shared with us their favorite “undiscovered” secrets of Napa and Sonoma Valleys.  Now their world can be yours!


Another of my passions of is gourmet food. Napa and Sonoma wine country is brimming with restaurateurs proving that they have the best the world has to offer.  We know where the locals dine on the most sumptuous cuisine, where the “rich and famous” find their gourmand experiences, and where you will enjoy some of the finest food and wine pairings found anywhere.
