We asked some locals for a vineyard to visit, and they suggested Francis Ford Coppola's. I guess they thought we were interested in a spectacle, not a winery. It was a three-ring circus: giant parking lot, pool, loudspeakers, tour buses. We fled. Our GPS showed Foppiano winery and we headed there. Quiet, historic, professional. No uniformed "guest relations" staff, just people, a tasting room, nice garden with a few picnic tables outside. The "tour" consisted of a sheet of paper to point out some of the different grape varieties. Go there. It's family-owned since 1896, survived Prohibition, and they are known for their Petit Syrah. Fee for tasting is refunded with purchase. Loved the story told by the tasting room staff member - the place was so out of the way that the Prohibition enforcers didn't find it until years later and forced them to pour all the wine into a ditch, where a large party was held for days.
