I am sure this is the most common question so I will let you know our preferences and I am hoping for some good suggestions for wineries to visit.
We will have a car (we share tasting with the driver just having a sip) and like to do about 5 wineries in a day.
So we are Red wine drinkers mostly. Pinot and Cab being our favs. Last trip we only visted a few wineries in the area, but ones I can remember are:
Pappa Pietro Perry (sp?) - My wife loved the Pinot Noir, made me drive back to get more!
Silver Oak, very good, bought a really nice bottle of Cab Sav at xmas that we drank.
Ferrari Canero - Doesn't really stand out to me.
Robert Young - Very nice wines, I think we actually bought a white and the girl behind the counter was amazing.
Places we meant to go but didnt:
Russian River Vineyards
So can anyone reccomend some good ones based on this?
On another note our greatest discovery was Rombaur a few years ago, I am very we were not the first, but as red wine drinks...wow! We looove their Chardonay, and have been search out something similar ever since (buttery on buttery). So does anyone have any secret finds on Rombauresk Chardonays anywhere in the area (could be Napa as we will be over there too).
Thanks for any help, I am sure these questions get asked all the time, but I have tried to be as specific as possible. Some of the best wineries we have been to have been tips from people, and likely we would have never otherwise seen them!
