Boyd Family Vineyards

This wine is outstanding. I had a chance to visit this vineyard and sample their most fabulous wine. The Boyd's are a fantastic pair and make such fantastic wine. We drank with the owner. He shared his great story with us on how he got into the business. I am sure glad he did. His wines were the some of the best we drank the while we were in Napa.

Ritchie Creek Vineyards

Blaufrankisch is a very important varietal in Austria, but is almost unknown in California. At Ritchie Creek Vineyard they produce a small lot of Blaufrankisch from a few rows in their lower vineyard. The wine from these grapes is characterized by a unique spiciness and forward fruit that is almost recklessly exuberant. The adventurous wine lover will find the Blaufrankisch experience uniquely rewarding.

Ladera Vineyards

Ladera Vineyards is the home of estate grown and produced hillside Cabernet Sauvignon in Howell Mountain Appellation. Their beautiful historic 1886 building was restored and renovated stone winery, they make their wines from the top floor for crushing, to first floor for fermenting, and than store it in the underground barrel caves.

Work Vineyard

Karen and Henry Work grow sauvignon blanc on three acres in Calistoga. They make one wine and one wine only: Napa Valley sauvignon blanc. The wine is rich and complex; it's worth seeking out.

Van Der Heyen Vineyards & Winery

That being said, this place makes some of the most delicious dessert wines I have ever had the blessing of putting on my tongue. The late harvest cabs and the Semillion are to die for if you are into sweet wines and you're willing to pay $125+ for a bottle. The love and care that goes into their late harvest wines is exceptional. If its a bad season, the grapes don't get picked and the late harvest wine isn't made that year. If you only prefer fancy wineries, then this place isn't for you, as it's an old tiny shack looking thing. However, if you prefer amazing wine, then this place is so for you.

Behrens and Hitchock

Behrens Family Winery is an enchanting winery that makes some of the best red wine in Napa Valley. Known previously as Behrens & Hitchcock and Erna Schein, this winery is now called Behrens Family Winery, although some of their wines are labeled with the previous winery names and all of their wines have whimsical names that might confuse you. All of the bottles have labels with unusual artwork and phrases. It is all very creative and playful, with word plays mixed with a diversity of art and cartoons. In direct contrast to all of this is the seriousness of the wines.

Tres Sabores

You definitely need reservations for this place as it's quite small and off the beaten path. Hopefully next time we visit we'll be able to meet Julie the owner, although our server (whose name escapes me at the moment) was outstanding, very friendly and fun.

Harlan Estate

A California "First Growth" estate featuring two wines, a Bordeaux-style Harlan Estate Proprietary Red Wine, and a second wine, The Maiden. Prepare to pay well for a bottle of the Harlan Estate Proprietary Red Wine. Robert Parker has given the Proprietary Red perfect scores in 1994, 1997, 2001, and 2002.

Lewis Cellars

In 1992 Debbie and Randy Lewis established a small family winery in Napa Valley and were later joined by their son Dennis in 1999. Total production is approximately 9,000 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Lewis Celllars has no tasting room at this time but you can purchase via their website.
