What are the 'not-to-miss' wineries at this tasting event?

anewton | | Oct 27, 2009 05:46 PM

My wife is going to a tasting event on Thursday (Oct 29), a fundraiser for the arts, featuring many Napa wineries. She asked my advice on which tasting stations she should be sure not to miss. There are many big name wineries pouring, like Shafer, Diamond Creek, Stag's Leap, Spring Mountain, Grgich Hills, etc...

However, there are also many wineries with which I have no familiarity. I am wondering if some of the Napa-philes on this board could comment on the following wineries (or at least on those that are noteworthy)...

Barlow Vineyards

Blackbird Vineyards

Boeschen Vineyards

Cain Vineyard and Winery

Diamond Terrace


John Anthony

Laird Family Estate

Miner Family Vineyards

Oakville Ranch Vineyards


Robert Craig Winery

Silverado Vineyards

Terra Valentine


Thanks for any insights you can offer regarding these wineries about which I know nothing.
