Wendy, I would second Cabgirl's suggestion of Jessup Cellars . . . all of their reds are fabulous and one of the very few wine clubs to which we belong. On down the street is Girard, also fabulous reds. In the St. Helena area you might try Chase Family Winery for their zins. They are by appointment only. Also on Big Ranch Road on the north edge of Napa is Robert Biale winery, home of the Black Chicken Zinfandel . . . outstanding. By appointment only. Most of the wineries are very good. Whether you like the wines or not is a personal taste preference. All are good, just some are better than others. We try to stay with the smaller wineries whose wines are not available in our part of Tennessee.

Some other ones to try in Napa Valley:

Jessup Cellars - make fabulous wines and I love their small tasting room in Yountville on the main drag - Washington Street. The tasting room also doubles as an art gallery. Definitely try their Table for Four wine!

If you are in the Yountville area, then you might also want to try Goosecross. There's also Chandon which has gorgeous grounds though I'm not a particular fan of the tasting room experience.

Also try Corison Winery. It's by appointment only and they specialize in the reds. You taste inside their barrell/cellar room. It's a very cool experience and the wines are soooo good. A little pricey though so be prepared.

I would suggest Frank Family, Turnbull, and Hess. The drive to Hess is so lovely. The folks at Frank Family are a hoot. And Turnbull (the reserve room) always has wonderful photos displayed.

Enjoy!

I wanted to see if anyone had suggestions for wineries to visit other than the ones we have already visited. We went to the following 2 years ago:

Sterling (my favorite)
Sutter Home (beautiful rose garden)
Beringer
Robert Mondovi

Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are visiting the second week in October with friends and I want to make sure we hit the right wineries. Thank you!
