Hawkeye,
I have only done the straight tastings at Seghesio, but I THINK it was Uncorked who had that pairing on the agenda for her trip last fall- might check with her.
Regarding Pezzi King- we haven't been to either the tasting room or the ranch, but we had the wine at ZAP events and were quite delighted. They come across as really genuine folks so I would think that you would have a nice meal at good value with them.
If you are willing to drop down-county to Sonoma Valley, St. Francis and Chateau St. Jean both offer pairings. St. Francis offers 3 different scenarios and I think the prices range from something like $18-$33 depending on what you choose. Chateau St. Jean is something I just saw recently advertised and am not familiar with.
Have you considered trying to use the "Ticket to the Wine Road" program for your group? Its an economical way to check out several wineries in the "Wine Road" area and if I recall correctly some of the participants offer a paring or wine-maker encounter as part of their visit. Its important to confirm participation with each winery, and to have your ticket to show,but it may help with costs for some of your group.

The car in carjeff has nothing to do with "cars", so unfortunately I cannot be the DD. Helping with tasting - that I could do! I would just have to convince my wife that we need to make Napa/Sonoma a yearly visit (or more) like the rest of you.

Hi Yes,

I have checked out Seghesio's website previously and question if the tasting/food pairing fee is a little steep for my group. Has anyone done this and is it enough food that you could have it for lunch? Their menu that I checked looked pretty good. But $45 is a little steep for some in this group.

I also noticed that Pezzi King will set you up with a lunch. Has anyone done this?

Soda Rock looks interesting and I believe we drive right past them on the way to Healdsburg from Calistoga. I think I remember seeing the line of buildings under renovation.

Thanks for the recommendations Yes.

I know we want to stop at Wilson and Mauritson (if we can get a separate room away from the crowd) Last time they shoved us into a little corner where we didn't even have a bar or table to put our glasses on.

I had thought about Simi for lunch with their pizza oven. Has anyone done this?

Thanks for your help.

-Hawkey

Well now, this is an interesting proposition!! The scope of Left Brain's work makes it impossible to say, at this time, whether it could work for us, but i will put it out for discussion at the home front.
Hawkeye,
my first thought for Healdsburg potential to handle 10-12 would be Seghesio. Perhaps even for lunch with their "Family Table" option. We haven't had the pleasure of that event yet, but it sounds fun.
Outside of Healdsburg, per se, is Soda Rock.
That is a neat place, still under renovation when we went,but intended as a place for handling large groups, etc. I'm sure they could work with you. That is a Wilson Artisans winery, so if you are a Wilson club member you will get a discount.
Armida was planning a renovation to their upstairs when we were there last spring, and the idea was to make a private tasting area up there...if they have done that, it would be perfect. Again, not exactly Healdsburg, but close.
You know what, I bet you all would enjoy Pezzi King! You don't hear much about them, but they make really good zins- or at least we have had some at ZAP events. You would want to go out to the ranch; I don't even know if they still have the Healdsburg tasting room but it probably would be too small anyway.
That's all I've got. Hope it helps

Hi Damombo,

We will plan to be in Napa Valley until the 18th or 19th. You might even convince us to stay through the next weekend if everyone could come. I did notice that air fares jumped almost $200 two days ago.

How is the cold and hubby's knee. No, I don't mean the cold in hubby's knee, the cold in your head?

If we could get "Yes" to come, I may even spend a couple days in Sonoma Valley. Since Carjeff evidently likes cars, he could forgo tasting and drive us all around. Anyone else want to come join us?

Had home made chili (I made it) last night with a bottle of Mauritson Rockpile Cemetary Vineyard Zin. WOW, what a powerful Zin!

OK, so Oct. 12th and 13th you will be busy with the group. Are you planning to be in the area for a few days before or after - so that maybe I can plan a trip for us and we will be able to rendezvous with you??? And perhaps Carjeff & Yes & big semi & cabgirl will join in!!

Hi Yes,

Yes, I will be leading my group again in October. The group next year will spend one day in Napa and one day in Healdsburg, October 12 & 13.

I have the Napa wineries pretty well identified, I have yet to begin working on the ones around Healdsburg. Any suggestions for places that can handle 10-12 people?

-Hawkeye

So Hawkeye,
I hope this thread means that you have reconsidered your previous decision to not return to wine country!!!
We would miss your insights and trip reports!

Hi Hawkeye,

I'm not familiar with Harrison. I know Goosecross can accomodate that crowd; I had sent my neighbors there earlier this fall and they were a party of 14. If you would like, let me know when you are planning and I can check with them.

I am looking for wineries for next year that can accommodate 10 - 12 people for a tasting. Has anyone visited the Wm Harrison Winery on the Silverado Trail? If so, what did you think of the visit and the wines.

Jeff, what about Goosecross for the same reason?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

-Hawkeye
