Hello all -
My wife and I are taking our first trip to Napa Valley in a few weeks (Feb 17 - 20) and are trying to put an itinerary together. We are taking platypus tours our second day, and will be driving ourselves the other two days. We have a long list of "recommended" wineries from friends/family/co-workers which I've listed below:
- Robert Mondavi
- Frog's Leap
- Silver Oak
- Castello di Amorosa
- Rutherford Hill
- V. Sattui
- O'Brien Estate
I know it's not realistic to get to all these wineries in two days, so I would like to get your thoughts on how to narrow down this list. Which of the above would you recommend? Which ones should we tour? And are there any "must-see" wineries that we are missing?
Finally - do we need to have tasting reservations at all wineries we plan to visit? I'm hoping it won't be too crowded since we are coming mid week during the winter.
Thanks in advance for your help.
