Hi All,

Has anyone been to any of these wineries? What were your experiences? Suggestions? Should I skip any?

I've been to Schramsberg, and it was a nice experience. I haven't been to the others, but goodness great wines.

Have you tried the TA forums search function?

Lots of trip reports that include detailed reports/feedback on tastings from at least 3 of the above 4 wineries.

Just use the winery as a keyword (e.g., "Sinskey"). You'll get lots of opinions. :)

Hope this helps. :)

Hey there,

The only winery I am familiar with on your list is Schramsberg. I attended their tour and tasting last year. I liked it SOOO much that I am bringing friends up to Napa this year and go on the tour/tasting again. It was great, very educational, awesome venue(tour is through their caves, even the tasting is done in the caves). Their specialty is sparkling wines, and they are very good. The tasting also includes a couple red wines, which were ok. Make sure to make reservations in advance. Gotta check it out.

Two years ago we took the Schramsberg cave tour, and loved the tour and the sparkling wines (and their Reserve Cab!)

We also stopped at Miner family and tasted the best Chardonnay I had in Napa. They are very highly regarded... and the pourer was very friendly and interesting.

I have no experience with the other two.

I recommend Schramsberg and Miner of the 4 you asked about. I think you can pop-in at Miner, but make sure to make an appointment ahead of time at Schrams. It's beautiful.

My wife and I did the 11 AM tour and chees/wine tasting at Sinksky. The tour was short and informative. We had a variety of wines with cheeses and snacks. They even cooked up a small gourmet pizza. I enjoyed their pinot and their blends.

Just got back from napa and tasting at benessere. The wines are italian style. Wines were good - tasting nothing special except for the huge black dog lying in the middle of the tasting area.
