Moss Creek Winery

I visited their small quaint tasting room once and a great time tasting its varieties. Moss Creek Winery and Moskowite Family Vineyards is located in Capell Valley in the eastern part of the Napa Valley AVA. In 1999, George and Ann Moskowite established Moss Creek Winery. They sell many of their grapes, but also produce a limited amount of estate wine. Winemaker Nils Venge handcrafts Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Charles Spinetta Winery

Italian ancestors farmed in Amador County in the mid 1800's – we certainly know what it looks like around here and now you can, too. The Vineyards Tour takes a walk across our land in California's popular Shenandoah Valley winegrowing region. The Winery & Equipment Tour exhibits the tools of our trade. Preview your next romantic getaway on the Tasting Room and Art Gallery Tour.

Clos Du Bouis

Clos Du Bois seemed to make a very little effort to hide the corporate image with big buildings and parking lots marked 'Corporate visitors only'. Still they make a very decent selection of table wines, especially at their pricing. Have you been to Costco lately? While I have yet to purchase a bottle of Clos Du Bois it has been served to me a number of times visiting friends. My goal is to make a trip to try their higher end wines and their flagship "Marlestone" and their old vine carignane.

Martin Ranch Winery

This winery is fun! They're only open the third weekend of the month. Tucked away down Redwood Retreat Road about 3.5 miles from Watsonville Road, the drive to get here is truly spectacular.

They are only open the third weekend of each month and passport weekends. They ask that you sign in and they then give you name tags with your first name on it. The staff was friendly and the owners Therese and Dan were walking around greeting people.

Dan and Therese Martin clearly have a passion for making great wine. They have scores of awards for their wine but that's not what they lead with. Their tasting room is welcoming and intimate. The vibe is comfortable and engaging.

Martin Ranch produces a variety of wines from Chardonnay to Cab Franc, Sauvignon Blanc to Sangiovese.

Charles Krug

Krug is an incredible piece of Napa history but the wines don't take second seat to this fact. Their tasting room is relaxed, low-key and not overdone. They don't need to distract you from their great wines and great staff. Angie is awesome, friendly and knowledgeable.

Collier Falls Vineyards

Collier Falls is a family-owned winery in Healdsburg, California’s beautiful Dry Creek Valley. Collier Falls Vineyards makes limited quantities of award-winning, estate red wines from their sustainably-farmed hillside vineyards in Sonoma County. Collier Falls Vineyards wines are aromatic, complex and elegant, and the winery's name comes from the waterfall below their Zinfandel vineyards.

Calstar Cellars

A life-long interest in fine food and artisan craft led, Proprietor and Winemaker, Rick Davis to the wine industry. With graduate work in soil sciences and his first experience as a cellar-hand for Rivendell Winery, a small winery in New Paltz, NY, he quickly learned the trade and excelled to Winemaker. In order to pursue this newfound passion, his move to Sonoma County, CA left him in the perfect place to master winemaking and focus on Pinot Noir.
