Hi KMJ, over from the Sonoma Board. Here are some suggestions driving from Santa Rosa over the mountain to the northern Napa Valley.

DAY 1

BENNETT LANE - Just north of Calistoga on Hwy 128. They have a proprietary blend called Maximus that receives a lot of raves and is at a pretty good price point. The also have some pretty good Cabs.

CHATEAU MONTELENA - Famous for their Chardonnay winning the 1976 Paris tasting and featured in the film "Bottle Shock". They do a "Bottle Shock" tour which takes you to the areas of the winery where filming took place. Also, you receive an autographed (by the Real Bo Barrett) and a split of Chard.

CASTELLO DE AMOROSA - I have not been here but I hear the tour of the castle is worth the time invested.

STERLING - There wines are nothing special, but the tram ride and the scenery are outstanding.

Then there are a lot of wineries along Hwy 29. Just pick some out and enjoy.

DAY 2 - For a different view of the valley. Drive down the Silverado Trail, a winding, mountainous highway.

BALDACCI - Some very fine Cabernet.

Cut across the Yountville Crossroad to the town of Yountville. There you have several excellent tasting rooms including, Girard, Jessup, Domain Chandon (for sparkling) Hill Family, Cornerstone, Chiarello, Hope & Grace, etc. Plus, there are some very fine restaurants th choose from for lunch and/or dinner.

Have a great anniversary. Cheers.
