I'm making a third return visit to Napa and Sonoma in a few weeks, and trying to figure out a good itinerary. My priority is mainly tasting wines that are harder to get in New York City, from smaller places. Not that interested in elaborate tours. Willing to make appointments if necessary. Price is not a huge factor, but I want to spend more time in Sonoma because it is less expensive and the places are smaller.
My initial thought is to break it up like this:
Sonoma Dry Creek Valley/Anderson Valley
Sonoma Russian River Valley, etc.
To give some idea of places I like, I am a member at Dutch Henry Winery in Napa, and Seghesio Vineyards and Gundlach Bundschu in Sonoma. I will visit each of those again this time.
Advice much appreciated!
