Fodor's Review

You're apt to see or hear hawks, egrets, Canada geese, and other wildlife on the grounds of Etude, known for its sophisticated Pinot Noirs. Though the winery and its light-filled tasting room are in Napa County, the grapes for its flagship Carneros Estate Pinot Noir come from the Sonoma portion of Los Carneros, as do the ones for the rarer Heirloom Carneros Pinot Noir. Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and other wines made by Jon Priest are poured daily in the tasting room. On Friday and the weekend, Pinot Noirs from California, Oregon, and New Zealand are compared at seated The Study of Pinot Noir seminars ($45). Single-vineyard Napa Valley Cabernets are another Etude specialty; the Rutherford and Oakville ones are particularly good.
