This place is sumptuous. You need to promise to buy something -- a glass of wine, a tasting, something -- before they let you go through the gate, but once you do, you are on one of the definitive wine properties in Napa Valley. You're...More

Great house and views... interesting to wander through some of the rooms and the history. We did not do a tasting, just had coffee, though certainly had more character than a lot of the other wineries.

The landscape of this winery is beautiful.. I did the heritage wine tasting and it was amazing. I especially like the historical explanation of how the winery came to be. This was definitely worth the money I paid.

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

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.
