Yummy food.

We are eating at the Bistro Jenty Friday Night, Redd Saturday Night, and Mustard Grill on Sunday.

We are on the waitlist for the French Laundry, but not counting on it..

Thanks,

Hi Kdigman,

I am not familiar with Cain so can give you no help there. After your visit, I would be interested in hearing your opinion so I can either add it to my itinerary or omit it.

Since you are in St. Helena, visit the Salon St. Helena, 1118 Hunt Avenue, 707-963-3193. An appointment is necessary. Asa Baird is the Salon Manager. When you call, tell Asa Lee Pickles recommended him. They represent Harris and Jones Wineries and they have some amazing Cabs.

You might also want to check into Chase Family Vineyards. You will taste among 100 year old Zinfandel vines. A really small family winery 2252 Sulphur Springs Avenue | St. Helena. Appointment necessary. Call Katie at 707-963-1284 and tell her I recommended you.

From Chase, you can taste at Hall St. Helena. They have some amazing Cabs. Just walk in.

Then you can head back to Yountville and maybe take in a tasting room or two. I believe Girard is open pretty late. If you are looking for a restaurant, we have eaten several times at Bistro Jeanty and have found it to be very good.

Your Sunday at Robert Biale Vineyards is excellent. They have some of the best Zins in the valley.

After that you could go back to Yountville and hit the tasting rooms there.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Hawkeye. I will check into those places.

I should have noted places we are thinking of going so you all may have an idea of what we are thinking, maybe guide us to something that may be more interesting.

Hoping to do something like:
Sat:
10:00 Cain
Open
1:00 PM Orin Swift (though we can get most of these wines locally so we would not be sad if we end up someplace else)
Open

Sun:
10:00 AM Robert Biale

close to Yountville we will be having lunch with wife's parents afterwards.

Might be a good idea to check out the places Hawkeye suggested around Yountville we can walk with the parents.

You have several excellent tasting rooms all within walking distance in Yountville. Try Hope & Grace, Cornerstone, Jessup, Girard, and a host of others. Hope this helps.

Hello All,

Wife and I are in Napa for a mid May trip. Staying in Yountville. Looking for any nice Cab, Zin, Cab Franc vineyards

This is our second time out to Napa, hit Phelps, Mondovi, and Opus One the first time. Looking to spend time at more smaller vineyards.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Kdigman
