A charming property with great character. Rich in history and glamour (the Coppola connection). Very professional set-up. One of the most interesting wineries I have visited in Sonoma or Napa.

A stunning property with a very professionally run wine tasting operation. You arrive at the secure gatehouse and then access the property up a long drive to the main buildings. Tasting was very professionally done and the building has film memorabilia from Coppola and more....More

This is a lovely property with a cool area to sit near the fountain. Try it for the ambience. However the staff are aloof verging on snooty.

Yes, the property and facility is beautiful. They have a huge fountain/pool in front and it’s great for pictures. They even have a little cafe where you can sit outside, have a glass of wine, and enjoy the scenery.

My SIL and I are taking our MIL on a spur of the moment trip to Napa mid-Sept, and I'm freaking out at how little time I have to plan! Background info: -none of us has ever been to this area, and we know little about wine. MIL says she doesn't care about visiting any particular wineries, but I know she likes sparkling wines, so I thought it would be nice to take her to one of those. -This is a bucket list trip for MIL, so the pressure is on me to make it a wonderful trip. She is not in...More

If you're spending 4 nights, you will have ample time to visit both Napa and Sonoma Counties. You'll be able to fit in more wineries than just 3. If you MIL has mobility problems, I would advise calling ahead to the wineries to ask about possible accommodation for her. Some of them, like Domaine Chandon, are gorgeous but have many many many steps; most wineries do involve a bit of walking from the parking lot into the tasting room, and some are on hillsides. Reserve your spa/mineral...More

Tasting rooms & maybe a tour - Napa (7 Replies)
Able to visit last minute this weekend, have two full days Friday and Saturday to taste and eat.. Looking for some must see wineries.. Mostly into Pinot Noirs, Cabs, no whites.. Looking for fun atmosphere, upbeat tasting rooms with quality wine of course. Maybe a must see tour or two.. Originally wanted to see Inglenook, cakebread, Silver Oak but now seeing many suggestions on places we never heard. Knowing what some of you now know, how would that first trip look? Thanks!

Wine Tour Itinerary, departing from Inverness? (21 Replies)
Hello. We will be staying in Inverness for 4 nights. I am attempting to put together a self-drive wine tour. I am seeking advice if this is too ambitious for one day, and should be made into a 2 day tour: Inverness to Stony Hill / Calistoga. Stony Hill to Inglenook. Inglenook to Trefethen (Trefethen is a must do for me because I love their chardonnay). Trefethen to Benziner. Benzinger to Kenwood. Final stop for dinner at The Vineyards Inn in Kenwood. (We could drop Kenwood off the list if...More

Response fromSonapaoma|
I think you would enjoy this trip much more if you took two days to do it. The drive from Inverness to Stony Hill is two hours. The drive back from Kenwood is an hour and a half. If you did the Napa Valley on day 1 and then drive over to Glen Ellen or Kenwood for the night, you would have the whole next day to explore the Sonoma Valley.
