Rec's for Napa/Sonoma Winery Visits ?

mikester | Dec 5, 2007 09:54 AM

My wife and I will be visiting Napa/Sonoma for a brief time (only 1-2 days) in January, and I'm interested in recommendations for wineries that you like. We have been to the wine country a number of times before, and have visited quite a few over the years, so we're not so much interested in the biggies like Mondavi/Opus One, BV, Simi etc. I'm planning to reserve a wine cave/barrel tasting tour at Del Dotto, because I've heard that can be a fun and interesting tour. Any unique experiences you'd recommend would be welcome !

We get the biggest kick out of the small out of the way wineries that you need to make reservations for, and generally get to meet and talk with the winemakers themselves. Also, any wineries that specialize in and make very good examples of wines other than Cab/Merlot/Chardonnay, would be great. Anyone been to Pride Mountain ? I had a viognier from Pride that was pretty awesome, early this year.

Thanks in advance.
