For us, wine and everything about it has become a staple. Let’s step back in time…We were newlyweds while Lance was serving in the U.S. Navy, stationed in Alameda, California. That was wonderful news for us, because we then only lived 40 minutes from the Napa Valley. We visited Napa Valley as often as we could. We learned to love everything about wine and the Napa Valley.We enjoyed frequenting our favorite wineries. Here is a list of some of our favorites:
Start you day with a glass of champagne at Domaine Chandon. The tour is very interesting and the atmosphere is splendid.
V. Sattui – This award winning winery has a wonderful picnic area to enjoy.
Robert Mondavi (reservations suggested) – They have a wonderful tour that ends with a food and wine pairing.
Sterling Vineyards – (unfortunately no relation) – A gondola (aerial tram) ride takes you to the winery. The view is breathtaking and the wine is fabulous.
We also try to add one or two new ones to the list. There are over 300 wineries to visit in the Napa Valley, so you will have to select your favorites to visit, unless you have a month to spare…
We hot air ballooned twice over the Napa Valley and hope to fly again soon. It is an exhilarating experience as your balloon rises with the roar of the burners and then floats in silence, drifting with the wind as your overlook the wine country’s majestic landscape. The views are spectacular! On a clear day, you can see all the way to San Francisco. BalloonRides.com, the company that we flew with, is having a great Mother’s Day special. This really is one of those experiences that will stick with you for a lifetime. If you have not experienced the pleasure of a hot air balloon ride, we encourage you to try. Up, up and away!
Unfortunately, the days of free wine tasting have ended in the California Wine Country. If you visit the Chamber of Commerce in Napa, they often have 2 for 1 wine tasting coupons. Also, some wineries offer to waive the $5-10 tasting fee with the purchase of a bottle of wine.
I found a great Napa resource at NapaTouristGuide.com. Wally tells it like it is! You will find The Best Hotels, Best Dining, Best Wineries, and Best Agendas on NapaTouristGuide.com! He also has quite a few links for wine tasting coupons. Wally has done his homework and you will benefit from his sage advice.
Another resource for the Napa Valley is Ecouncierges.com. They offer a printable guide to Napa that has a lot of great information and coupons. One note – V. Sattui did not accept our printed coupons, so you may want to pick up a guide at one of the many 4 or 5 star hotels in Napa.
Enjoy lunch at Taylor’s Automatic Refresher. They are an upscale burger restaurant that has super burgers and you can get a glass of wine with lunch.
The Napa Valley is a wonderful and magical place to visit. It will definitely be a treasured vacation to remember.
