Two years ago, we did a Napa Valley wine tour and two of the wineries we visited had a lasting impression on us. As we were limited for time on this trip, we chose to revisit those locations.
Franciscan Estates, located in St. Helena, CA, was very inviting. We arrived shortly after they opened and I signed up for their wine club, saving myself 30% off my entire purchase! They also make quarterly deliveries of wine and I'm already excited about my first shipment! My favourite wine there is the Fountain Court white but we stalked up on some Cabs as well.
We also visited V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena and though it was a favourite of ours before, our experience was different this time around. It was Labor Day weekend and the winery was holding an appreciation BBQ and we found that there were too many people to be able to enjoy the tasting experience. We will definitely revisit this winery in the future though as our first time was so memorable and we are still interested in touring the beautiful grounds.
