Help me pick one more winery!

On a sunday, my husband and I will be running a half marathon and then getting a driver to drive us around to some wineries. We will be with my parents (late 60s and not big wine drinks, but fully mobile) and my 3 year old. We've been to Napa a dozen times and with my daughter about 4 times now, so we generally know how to handle her and which wineries to go to. We have our itinerary picked out except I need one more winery for this day -- help me choose.

1. Alpha Omega

2. Darioush

3. I need help here -- Peju, Pine Ridge or Hall?

Any other recommendations (not Frog's Leap, V Sattui, Cliff Lede)? Thanks!

I would vote Hall because they have a great outdoor space with interesting sculptures/art work.

No kids allowed at O'Brien. Hagafen is nice and near Darioush.

I would vote Hall too. Great wines and artwork plus nice outdoor space and good tour.

If you want to go some place quirky but your daughter would enjoy then go to Raymond. They have a hall of senses where you can smell different scents that make up wine and they have a Tim Burton-esque room with mannequins hanging that she might get a kick out of.

Honestly although Darioush is very very pretty when you first drive up, I wasn't impressed on the whole and our tasting was very rushed. I would consider doing Hall and Raymond and foregoing Darioush. But that is just my personal opinion.

Try Sherwin Family Vineyards on Spring Mountain. Great wines and beautiful location. Second choice Hall

Considering you have a little one with you, V Sattui would be perfect, lots of room outside and picnic tables. It will be crowded there and energetic. They also have a great deli where you can purchase food and bakery items. Pine Ridge is more adult-oriented with a small tasting room and not much outdoor space. :)
