It is clear from other reviewers that pretty much every tour guide at Schramsberg is well informed and interesting. That is an essential when talking about the making sparking wines, because the whole process is much more complex than making regular wine. Our tour guide, Ilya, did not disappoint. My husband has done a great deal of reading on the making of champagne in France, and even he thought her information was outstanding. The original caves, the beautifully restored original home on the property, the fascinating complexity of the process - - -and of course, the tasting of the exquisite Schramsberg Sparkling Wines - - -made for one of the highlights of our trip to the Napa Valley. We have had champagnes/sparkling wines from all over the world, and Schramsberg is a tough competitor for the best of them - - -the tasting of some of their older vintages alone makes the price of this tour well worth it! Just be aware that you must reserve your tour, preferably a few days in advance.
