Yes - I would be interested in knowing who you met. Was it Heidi Douglas?

Damombo - Thanks for sharing your itinerary.

I guess the reason I posted here was because of the comment about inappropriate posting. I forgot that I was in "Dining" and added the rest.

Well Hello there Hawkeye. I recently met a daylily acquaintance of yours from Georgetown, SC. She thinks you are wonderful.
I have been reading some new winery names lately, on the "other" board and on TA for both Napa and Sonoma so I hope y'all will continue to post your adventures so I can learn what's out there.
We are not wine traveling these days, and have no plan for it in the near future so I'm not here much any more, but y'all know that I think of you with every bottle opened and hope you'll stay in touch. You know where to find me away from here...

Yep, we are heading to California next week! We will only have one day in Napa, because we are really going to Paso Robles to meet some friends. But since we are flying into Oakland, we couldn't be so close to Napa and not go by! So we are coming early in order to swing by…

We are planning to visit Reynolds Family, Hunnicutt, Vineyard 29, Clif Family, Chappellet, and Hall St. Helena. We fly in on Wednesday and will arrive in Napa with just enough time to get to a last-of-the-day appointment at Reynolds Family. We tried to taste there a few years ago - had an appointment made and all that jazz, but that was the year my husband's knee surgery turned into a 6 month ordeal, and we had to cancel the trip.

Then Thursday will be a "GEMS of Napa Valley" day. In case you are wondering, the wineries participating in the Gems of Napa Valley are:
Chappellet Vineyard
HALL Rutherford
Ladera Vineyards
Robert Craig Winery
Silverado Vineyards
Robert Biale Vineyards
Vineyard 29

We've been to Biale, or course, and to Ladera and Silverado, so we are spending the day on the others. With the exception of Clif Family - I added them because we will be having lunch in St. Helena but need to be at our Chappellet appointment by 3:00. Gotta take location and drive times into consideration!!

So I'll be sure to post our impressions of all of these places. I'll try to be quick about it, but our daughter will be defending her thesis for her PhD right as we get back, so I might be distracted just a bit.

If you go to the bottom of this page (and all Pages) there is a "Contact Us". I have on several occasions sent an email to the moderators here and they have quickly removed the offending email.

Where is everybody? Bigsemi, carjeff, mshight, RichardSE, ssala, Bubba, OMRebel, micablover, CabLover, etc., etc.

Bigsemi, I know you make several trips each year. Would like to hear about them.

I miss all of you. Even if you haven't been to Napa lately, give a shout so we will know that you are all okay.

damombo and yesilovewine it is good to know that you are still around. Damombo, I know you are headed to Napa soon, how about an itinerary?

Miss hearing from all of you.
