Napa Valley-Wine-Release Weekend

Thomas | Feb 3, 2003 01:49 PM

I went to a few of the winery release parties this weekend: Groth, Silver Oak & Flora Springs and stopped at a few others like Steltzer, Franciscan and Luna. I'm keeping a vertical of Groth & Silver Oak. The vertical may soon end at $100 and more per bottle at these two locations.

I'm a bit surprised at Silver Oak's party, it's becoming a easier find then two years ago. You'd have
to wait for hours and now it's becoming more of a stop for food and tasting of the wine. The buying doesn't seem to be their. Also, the wine has fallen a bit since the departure of Justin Meyer.

Interested if anyone else traveled to these locations and found the same responses and fees a bit too much
for the wines.

However, the valley was incredible with the weather.
