2nd visit to California wine country, recommendations needed.

Jump to last reply

this is our second trip to wine country. we usually can handle several wineries in one day. there are just so many and I would hate to miss out on somewhere great. we stick to red wine.

we are staying in Healdsburg (love it there!) and I picked out mostly biodynamic/organic vineyards. we are stopping at just two places in the Napa area en route to Healdsburg from San Francisco mostly because we are members at one of them and they offer perks for that. So I don't think I want to go anywhere else in the Napa area. Mostly looking for recommendations in the Russian River, Dry Creek, Alexander Valley area.

here is my tentative list...

manzanita/salerno

williamson

Preston

truett hurst

Michel-Schlumberger

quivira

arista

porter creek

russian river brewery

possibly benziger but it's kind of out of the way....

we've already been to:

Napa area:

V Sattui

Artesa

Chimney Rock

Uncorked at Oxbow

frank family

rombauer

freemark abbey

Del Dotto

Goosecross

peju province

Cline

Gundlach Bundschu

Foppiano

Matanzas

Chautea St Jean

DeLoach

Bella

Ridge

Seghesio

Rochioli
