Philip Staley Vineyards & Winery is a small, family-owned grower/producer of fine wines. Located in the Alexander Valley near Healdsburg, California, amidst some of the most beautiful country on earth. But if you are touring the wine country Sonoma, you won't know where are vineyards or winery are.. And that's a pity, because it is small wineries that are producing some of California's finest wines such as Philip Staley Vineyards & Winery.

Monte Volpe

The wines we have made at Monte Volpe (which means Fox Mountain) since Monte Volpe first releases in 1991 are rich in color, fragrance, flavor and offer a great deal of finesse. Their structures are reminiscent of their Italian ancestry, but they display a vibrancy that is the hallmark of wines that are produced from fully ripened grapes.

Antica Napa Valley

Antica Napa Valley is a well kept secret off the beaten path. It's by appointment only, so be sure to call in advance as their wine tasting appointments are very limited. It's quite a ways up Soda Canyon road off the Silverado Trail in Napa, but it was well worth the drive. Once you arrive at the wine tasting room, you'll feel as if you're in someone's private home. Our hostess was very nice and gave us a tour of the property and wine cave. She poured 4 different wines, one white and three reds that were all really drinkable now just as the other winery had mentioned was really great about them. I really enjoyed all of their wines, which ranged in price from $35-$95, and wished I could have taken home a bottle of each. Along with the wines, they served a delicious plate of cheese, olives, salami and chocolate for each person. The tasting fee is $30, but was refunded when I bought a bottle of their wine.

The vineyard of Chatom Vineyards is nestled in the breathtaking Esmeralda Valley of the Sierra Foothills in Calaveras County.

Don't overlook this small store and location. This is a great spot to go with friends for a FREE Olive oil tasting. The owner is passionate about his wines and olive oil and will take the time to talk about his passion. When you first walk in you will see a typical wine tasting area (with a wine tasting fee). Bypass that area and go toward the back right corner by the restroom. Here the owner will offer you a free olive oil and vinegar tasting using small pieces of dipping bread! These specialty oil and vinegars are reasonably priced and make great gifts. Then head back to the tasting bar.
