Your “Senses” might go out of control with this tremendous lot and its four nights in Los Angeles for two couples, followed by a delightful overnight in Sonoma for a private tour of the Senses property and dinner with the winery founders. Plus there’s a wonderful selection of stellar wines from Senses!

On their first full day in LA, the couples will tour the Studio City set of the CBS hit show “SEAL Team,” guided by none other than Mark Owen, the former Navy SEAL who wrote two The New York Times bestsellers, No Easy Day and No Hero, the firsthand account of the Osama Bin Laden mission. Given his unique expertise, Mark is an executive producer of the show and will be your personal tour guide for the day, providing behind-the-scenes glimpses, introducing the cast and crew, and explaining the magic that makes the show so authentic.

The day will end with dinner and paired wines at Spago Beverly Hills, part of the Wolfgang Puck Worldwide brand, with Mark and Senses co-founders Christopher Strieter and actor Max Thieriot. Each couple will take home autographed copies of both of Mark’s books, and each couple will receive a pilot script from “SEAL Team,” signed by the entire cast.

The next day, the guests visit the set of “Judge Judy” with four front-row tickets to a taping, followed by lunch with Judge Judy in her chambers at the studio. For dinner that evening, the couples enjoy a five-course tasting menu dinner with Max and Christopher at Trois Mec with reserve wine pairings. In addition to a delightfully sated appetite, guests will leave Trois Mec with a signed copy of the Crave: A Feast of the Five Senses cookbook by chef Ludo Lefebvre and a Petit Trois hat.

In the morning, the couples venture out to enjoy LA at their leisure, be it shopping, playing golf, visiting galleries and museums, or pampering at a spa. In the evening, they join Max and Christopher for a finale dinner at Wally’s Beverly Hills.

Then, it’s off to Sonoma and one night’s accommodations in Premium King Deluxe Rooms at the luxurious Farmhouse Inn in Sonoma. The couples join Christopher and the third Senses co-founder, Myles Lawrence-Briggs, for a special tour and tasting at the property. For dinner, it’s a wonderful five-course tasting menu with the Senses team at Valette, a rustic-chic favorite in Healdsburg.

Along with an unforgettable experience and autographed reading materials, the winning bidder receives a collection of Senses wines by Thomas Rivers Brown and front row access to the Senses mailing list. This exclusive lot allows you to bypass the multi-year waiting list and gain a collection of their highly sought-after wines.

Get a grip on your Senses — more importantly, your paddle — and make a bid that’s winningly sensible!
