Hi Bigsemi,

Good to hear from you. What wineries do you plan to visit on your trip? Let us know how your trip goes and which wines you like the best. Don't be a stranger so long.

That is a lot of wineries to hit each day. We are going out for a few days in April with a group of friends. We'll be hitting a bunch of our favorite places, and try a few new ones you've posted about. have fun!

Here are the wineries that we will be visiting in the Napa Valley. Dasy 1 and 2 are listed on the Sonoma Bulleting Board.

Day 3:
SPOTSWOODE WINERY - New
REDMON WINERY - New
CAYMUS WINERY - New
ELIZABETH SPENCER WINES - New
PROVENANCE VINEYARDS - Have visited previously
BENNETT LANE - One of my perennial favorites that is always a must visit

Day 4:
REYNOLDS FAMILY WINERY - New
BARLOW VINEYARDS - New
SIGNORELLO ESTATE - New
JAMES COLE ESTATE WINERY - New
CHIMNEY ROCK WINERY - New
GARGUILO VINEYARDS - New
TAYLOR FAMILY VINEYARDS - New

I am really looking forward to these two days in the valley. As much as I like Zinfandel from Sonoma and the Dry Creek, I love BIG Cabs and I believe I will find some in this group. When you discover an excellent new wine, it is like Christmas morning.

In years past, we did not plan or make appointments to taste, just went to wineries that were open to the public. I always thought it would be difficult to keep to a schedule. Sometimes it is, but if you throw in a winery open to the public once in a while, you can get yourself out of a time jam if you have to skip it. If you do make appointments, and find that you cannot make one, give them a call to let them know you are not going to be coming. It is the right thing to do! Cheers!

Wow, Hawkeye, so many new ones! Can't wait to hear all about them. We've been to Chimney Rock twice I think - a friend of ours loves their wine so we stopped to pick up a bottle for them and split a tasting. I recall enjoying them but thinking that their wines were too expensive. That was probably 4 years ago. Funny how time and trips make that price point inch up

Hope everyone is handling the crazy winter weather! We got down to around 28 last night - very cold for here. I can hear the laughter already...

Hi Mamombo,
Sorry you are having a problem. I did notice that when I pasted it, it added some space around days 3 and 4. Take those out and retry.

Here is the .pdf file for days 3 and 4. Paste it into your web browser.

Napa is my favorite tasting area because of all the BIG Cabs. On Day 3 the first 4 wineries will be new to us and the last two are favorites. Some of wineries on these two days are very small. I believe Redmon only offers 3 wines and we will taste in their farmhouse.

Day 4 will be spent mostly on the Silverado Trail. All of the wineries will be new to us. How exciting. I try and schedule some appointments and then throw in some "No Appointment Needed" to buffer the time at each winery. If I have to miss one of them, no harm.

This is how I like to arrange my trips and can print off the schedules and know where I am supposed to be and when.

Last night we were home bound because of the snow and thought it would be a good Cab night so we opened a bottle of Baldacci Stags Leap Cab from Brenda's Vineyard. Wonderful bold fruit, tannins and a smooth, smooth finish. If you are headed to Napa, I would recommend Baldacci.

Days 1 and 2 of the trip are on the Sonoma board.
