Arwinst75,

It sounds like this is your first trip to Wine Country. If so, you are going to enjoy it and want to return many times.

Here would be my suggestions: If you are going to make appointments, begin the day at 10:00 AM with an appointment, then make an appointment for 1:00 PM. That way, you will be able to "Free Lance" a little more and visit wineries along the way that catch your eye.

If you want to make all appointments, I would suggest two in the morning and three in the afternoon. Most of the time, an hour will be plenty of time.

If you haven't been to Wine Country before, make your first appointment at Robert Mondavi and take the Basic Wine Experience visit. That will give you some background on which to build. Also as you taste at other wineries, ask questions and ask for suggestions for other wineries to visit.

If you want specific suggestions, go to the post that I just made "October Napa and Sonoma Itinerary". These are some of my favorite wineries in the valley.

Hope this helps, and please give us a report when your return. Have a great trip.

-Hawkeye

Any specific NAMES of individual wineries that are a must-see? Both Napa and Sonoma. I'm trying to plan an itinerary so I can make reservations. We are visiting at the end of September and will be staying in downtown Napa Monday-Friday. Another question is shoul, we do a guided wine tour or just head out on our own (we have a rental car). If the tour is worth the money, any particular company to go with? Thanks so much!
