I am not sure how an evening at Caldwell can even be put into words. This is a magical place with the most amazing people. A big thank you to Erin for organizing such a perfect evening.

The tasting experience in the cave is a bit pricey, as are the wines, but both are delightful. We were fortunate to have owner John Caldwell regale us with his experiences in transforming a decrepid dairy into a fabulous vineyard and winery.

If they have an opening, you may still be able to get in. I'd call - they do not do walk-ins. John and his wife are fun, wonderful people! 707.255.1294 - phone number
