What a day! It was time to sip and learn, or learn and sip actually, as we toured and tasted at the amazing Schramsberg Vineyards.
With the autumn grape harvest in full swing, visiting wineries is even more wonderful than usual! On this sunny Napa afternoon we chose to drop in at Bouchaine Vineyards to check out their latest wines.
So 2018 was just around the corner and we had a shocking problem: not enough champagne! Always problem solvers, we voyaged north to Schramsberg Vineyards to avoid this potential apocalypse.
With 2017 drawing to a close, it was only appropriate to celebrate the new as well as the familiar in wine tastings once more before the new year. For a new tasting experience, we ventured into the Carneros AVA to visit Bouchaine Vineyards. What a great choice!
Say you’re touring California wine country and you want to show your friends a good time tasting some lovely sparkling wine. You can’t go wrong if you take those friends to one of our regional favorites: Domaine Chandon!
The Napa Valley is awash with wonderful wineries. Any wine tasting visit to the area is necessarily a selection of a few great wineries from an overwhelming roster of great wineries. One such great winery had been skipped for far too long, so we decided to correct this oversight with a new visit to a favorite: Peju Winery.
A day of wine tasting requires planning, stamina, hydration and lots of food. A recent sparkling wine tour brought us to a great place for a casual picnic lunch: the grounds of V Sattui Winery.
