after speaking with a few knowledgeable folks, as well as reading the CH boards, it sounds as if the tourist season begins dropping off mid-november. my girlfriends and i are planning a calistoga/napa weekender the weekend before thanksgiving. we were planning on hiring a vehicle to take us wine tasting on that saturday, along the silverado trail. would we be better off tasting on friday instead? or is that weekend fairly mellow? any insight appreciated!
