Last month we put together a short list of some of our favorite local Napa Valley wineries. We love these wineries for so many reasons and can’t wait to introduce you to them on one of our Napa wine tasting tours. While we’re on a roll, we decided to highlight just a few more of our favorites. These wineries make “our list” because they not only produce superior wines, they deliver exceptional service, amazing vineyard views, and unique tasting experiences. We’re confident they will soon become some of your favorites as well!
