Truchard Vineyards Review

Diversity is the name of the game at this family-owned winery on prime acreage in the region's rolling hills. Although major Napa Valley vintners purchase most of the grapes grown on the property, some of the best are held back for estate-only wines—the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs the region is known for, along with Roussannes, Zinfandels, Merlots, Syrahs, Cabernet Sauvignons, and a few others. You must call ahead to tour or taste, but if you do, you'll be rewarded with a casual but informative experience tailored to your interests. The tour takes in the vineyards and the wine cave. Climb the small hill near the winery for a photo-op view of the pond and the pen of Angora goats over the ridge.
