First, thanks for your advice.
I am coming to the Napa Valley for the first time on tues 4/26. I have experience tasting wine and learning about wine making in the Finger Lakes Region of NYS, and also Tuscany in Italy. I mostly enjoy full-bodied reds, but am interested in comparing the three regions and experiencing what Napa has to offer.
We will start in Napa and work our way to Calistoga. My main question is: are there any wineries where I should make a reservation? I am slightly overwhelmed by the sheer #'s and feel more like stopping randomly (I am taking notes and have tons of places in mind). I just wonder if I will miss anything spectacular that is reservation-only...
