My wife and I will be making our first visit to Napa at the end of April for 4 nights at the Napa Marriott, and could not be more excited! We have both been making a list of the vineyards that we would really like to see, and as the list grows, we realize that we don't have enough time to see them all!! Just a few questions for you all. ANY help would be greatly appreciated!
1) How many tours can you comfortably do in one day? As we check out the wineries, we both are so interested in touring the different places, and would love to tour every place we visit, but just won't have time. It seems like all we can fit is one morning and one afternoon tour, but not sure if we can accommodate tastings on the same days
2) Our tentative itinerary is:
Monday - Arrive in Napa by 3pm and head to Castillo di Amorossa for their tour by 4pm.
Tuesday - Lancaster Estate Tour at 10am. Coppola Winery Tour at 1pm. We are members of Coppola and plan on spending more time here to make sure we see it all and eat at Rustic! We are staying about 1hr away at the Napa Marriott
Wednesday - Robert Sinskey Vineyard Tour at 11am. Lunch at Mustards. Inglenook tour at 3pm.
Then, we still have all day Thursday and most of the day Friday before heading to San Fran for a few days. The vineyards we are still trying to factor in are:
Joseph Phelps - Terrace Tasting by appointment only. Available 10am - 3:30pm. Not sure duration.
Palmaz - Tour and tasting by appointment only. Lasts 2 hours.
Kuleto Estate - Tour and Tasting by appointment only. 10:30am, 11:45am, 1:00pm, and 2:30pm.
Hall - St Helena drop in tasting or Hall Rutherford Tour and Tasting by appt only: 10am,1pm,3pm
Quintessa - Tour and Tasting by appt only. Between 10am - 4pm
Shafer - Tasting and Tour by appt only. Lasts 90 min. 10am or 2pm, Mon-Thursday
Does anyone have any ideas how we can add more visits on Tuesday or Wednesday, or should we just drop a few from the above list?
I apologize for all of the question!! The more I try to figure this all out, the more confused I get!!
Thank you all very much for any help!!
