Hawkeye, if you had two days, what wineries would you see. I rather not try to do too many, but to get a good selection. Thanks!

Getting confused at what exactly we should do and we will be there Saturday pm.

After several trips to the Napa Valley, we finally made it over to the Sonoma Valley last spring, and I loved it. Definitely more low key with many excellent wineries. In fact we will be there once again in a couple of weeks, although we are stopping by some of our favorite Napa Valley wineries at the north end of the valley, specifically Benessere, Madrigal, and Storybook Mountain. You can read our itinerary over on the Sonoma message board. My standard bit of advice is to order the Preiser Key (http://www.preiserkey.com/), an invaluable magazine to help you plan your trip.

I do have a few suggestions for you:

J. GREGORY WINERY - 707-474-2149 - http://www.jgregorywines.com/ You will taste with the owners, Mark and Kandice Jessup. Tell them Lee recommended them and I know they will take good care of you. Plus, you have the option of going over to the Carneros appellation for Pinot Noir.

FRAZIER and SODARO. I have had their wines, but have never visited. Google for information.

Here is a map of the wine country that may help you. http://napavalley.com/visitorsinfo/Napa_Valley_Winery_Map.pdf

Healdsburg - You have many options for great Zins. Just go out Dry Creek Road and you have Wilson, Mauritson, and a host of others. Here is a map that may help you. http://www.sonoma.com/visitorsinfo/Sonoma_County_Winery_Map.pdf

Have a great trip.

I was planning on staying in St. Healdsburg for two nights, it seemed like most of what I read was Sonoma was a little more laid back. My husband is a little less interested in wine, so I wanted to give him the option of taking things slow and not feel rushed to do too many wineries.

In Napa, we are staying in the southern part near Bordeaux Way.

Anything you can offer on either of those areas, I'd appreciate it!

Hi Aclark,

ssala is correct, we need to know where you are staying to help you to maximize your time in Napa Valley. My question is "Why are you going to Sonoma"? Most of the good wines are in the Napa Valley. If I had to go to Sonoma, I would pick 2 days in Napa and 1 in Sonoma.

Let us know where you are staying and we can respond better.

You came to an excellent place and will find plenty of great suggestions. As a general rule, most of us like to avoid excessive driving to maximize wine tasting time. Where are you staying in Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley? You should also post the same question on the Sonoma board. Scott

My husband and I are heading to California in two weeks. I have one day scheduled in Napa and two in Sonoma but feel overwhelmed trying to pick some wineries to go to! I don't like too bold of reds but am pretty open to anything. Any suggestions??
