Napa Valley Vineyards, California

I love this picture! I took it while on spring break in Napa Valley, California. It's the inside of one of the several wine tasting rooms we toured throughout Napa Valley. The vineyards of Napa Valley were amazing!
Let me know what you think!

Posted by: Dan at March 25, 2005 10:20 AMDan- This is a picture from inside the "reserve" tasting room at V.SATTUI WINERY in St. Helena, CA. To be honest, I wasn't a big fan of most of their wines; however, during the reserve tasting, I found several amazing wines! Their white wines, in contrast, surpassed their red wines, with the exception of a few. The 2002 Howell Mountain Zinfandel was by far the best Zinfandel I've tasted. I fell in love with their 2003 family Gamay Rouge! It was amazing! V. Sattui also had some of the best port I've had. Their vintage port was also amazing. I think V. Sattui was one of the best tastings during our tour throughout the Napa Valley! Let me know what you think!

Posted by: Bob Dale at August 18, 2007 4:05 PMI have not yet had the pleasure of visiting the Napa Valley wine region, but it is on my list of places to visit. I live in the heart of wine country in Oregon and I love to go tasting. There are some really good, and really bad, wines out there.
Posted by: Retta at May 28, 2010 11:01 AMJust did some research on a wine tasting region I had not heard of before. Sounds as if it may be very diverse in the types of wines it offers. It is the temecula wine country and I guess I will have to go visit.

Posted by: George at July 3, 2010 8:43 PMWhat a great photo! The vineyards in Napa really are amazing. What was your favorite vineyard? I always enjoy going to Korbel and trying some free champagne.

It's not that they aren't capable of making outstanding wines, simply put it isn't their focus. Many of them have some truly beautiful tasting rooms though!
Posted by: Mark at January 17, 2011 6:52 PMGreat picture, i have visited many vineyards over the last couple of years and i must say France has given me some great experiences and a wide range of taste's and flavours. Napa Valley is high on my must visit list and i hope to make it there at some point this year. Do you have any more photo's of your Napa Valley experience?

I must going to appreciate the hard work you all did to making complete this super website. Everybody can find all the news is wanted.
Posted by: Mike at October 9, 2011 5:22 PMWhat a great place to photograph. I attended a wedding in Napa a few years back and came home with CF cards LOADED with images! The wine ain't bad either...
