Some of the greatest wines in the world are grown in Napa Valley. We spent 2 days travelling up and down the valley stopping at wineries along the way. Much more busy and commercial than Sonoma. Again, some of our favorites:
Sterling Vineyards – You take a gondola to the top of the small mountain to visit the winery. There is a walking tour that explains the workings of the winery. The views from the top are fantastic. Sterling usually has a few wines that you can’t find at home for tasting.
Beringer – Historic vineyard started in 1876. Very interesting old stone cellars and caves. They charge for a wine tour. The wines are ok.
V. Sattui – If it were not so crowded, it would have been much nicer. An Old Italian winery that has a large deli area with gourmet cheeses, meats and salads. Outside they have picnic tables under large trees making it a great spot for a picnic. We bought some food and a bottle of wine and enjoyed our time together.
We didn’t care for the wine.
Domaine Caneros – Great way to end a day sipping champagne and eating snacks while watching the sunset.
Opus, Far Niente and Stags Leap – All had great wines.
