Carjeff beat me to it! Luna has a very nice Pinot Grigio.

Looks like Black Stallion does, and they aren't very far from Luna on the Silverado Trail.

Also Swanson - never been there, but their website says they do offer a Pinot Grigio...

Hi NJGirl,

Welcome! The only pinot grigio that I know of is Luna. Enjoy your trip.

Hello, and welcome to the boards!
I think you might like the Albarino made by Mahoney- its a light, crisp wine. It was an award winner at the Sonoma Harvest Fair a couple of years ago. I believe that the winery has a tasting site at the Oxbow Market.
If you are interested in using part of a day in the Sonoma area, Imagery has some really good white wines...I particularly liked their "Wow-Oui". If memory serves correctly, they also offer a Pinot Blanc, which is rather outside the box. They have some good reds,too, so hubby needn't feel slighted
Its a fun winery to visit because they have a lot of "different" wines, and if you enjoy art, their wine label art collection is really interesting.
Depending on your timeline of course, you could potentially stop there on the way to your lodging in Napa.

NJ girl,

First, welcome!

You should be able to find Chards in most wineries in Napa Valley. Sauv Blancs are found frequently as well. For the life of me, I can't remember coming across any PG's on our visits. Will find the occasional Gewurztraminer....Castello de Amorosa has a good one.

We are White Club members at Cakebread Cellars and have never been disappointed. Chards & SB. I agree with Voelfgar on Grgich Hills (Mike Grgich famous for the Chard winner of 1976 while at Chateau Montelena) & Merryvale (excellent SB). Others would be Round Pond, Sattui, Beringer, ZD, Sterling, & Rombauer.

We will be out there late May.....If I come across any PG's on our visits, I will make note and pass along.

Hope this helps & have a great trip!

RC

You're right there isn't anyone I know that grows pinot grigio.

As for white wine, I'd recommend Grgich, Merryvale for their Sauvnigon Blanc, Mondavi always have very nice whites.

For a Charrdonnay, I like Kendall-Jackson's Camelot Highlands Chardonnay. It is oak aged so it has that creamy flavor to it.

Good day all. Have really been enjoying the posts on this site. Thanks to all who contribute. It really helps an organized gal like myself plan for a great trip.

My husband & I visited NAPA in 2000 & haven't been back since. We LOVED the trip & are excited to celebrate 15 years of marriage this June. We chose NAPA as the place to celebrate!

We are flying in on a Wednesday to SFO. Renting a car & driving to Napa (staying at the Chablis Inn) on Wed & Thurs. We will then be going to Yountville & staying at the Villagio on Friday & Sat night. The only dinner we have planned is the CIA & I already have reservations set for Sat evening.

This gives us two solid days (Thurs & Fri) to visit the wineries. (Not sure if we want to fight the crowds on Sat - will probably just relax & enjoy our alone time together at the hotel.)

We are not extremely knowledgeable on wines - but we do love to find different types to try! My husband is a red wine drinker & prefers Cabs. I have seen a lot of great advice for Cabs - so thank you!

I prefer whites & am partial to a light Pinot Grigio. I have not seen as much on white wines (especial PGs).

Any advice on where to go for the whites? Would love to add any & all tips to my growing list of research!

Thanks so much!
