Napa Valley, CA
We aren’t big wine drinkers, but we loved Napa Valley. We did 4 tasting tours, but our favorite was our first— the smaller, not-so-touristy Hendry Ranch. The tour was very technical (which I loved), explaining conditions that affect the characteristics of the grapes and wine, how your palate reacts to sugar and tannins in wine, etc.
Some tidbits we found useful: 1. Drought years make great wine and 2. Nose placement in the glass makes a big difference in taste
We’re already discussing when we can come back 🤷🏼♀️ Also pictured: V. Sattui, Castello di Amorosa, and Sterling Vineyards - 1 day ago
