We’ve been to Napa Valley in the California wine country a couple of times now and have seen so many nice wineries. We stayed at one of the Four Sisters Inns; The Maison Fleurie. We’ve stayed at a couple of the Four Sisters Inns before so when we decided to head to Napa; we chose to stay at one of their Inns as they are usually very nice and accommodating and this one did not disappoint us. Here are a couple of pictures I took of the inside of the Inn. This place us very nice and I would highly recommend staying there if you have a chance. The Four Sisters also have a couple of other Inns in the area.
We decided to see some of the Stags Leap District winegrowers. A friend had recommend some of these wineries to see and we really enjoyed them. The three pictured below were a few of our favorites from this district. One of the best tips we received was from the man pouring the wine at the first location. He told us to just get one tasting and share it between the two of us. Their tastings are very generous and usually cost around $10-20 per tasting so it was a good saving tip for us.
We then headed to Sterling Vineyards near Calistoga. They offer a wide range of quality Napa wine and an amazing aerial tram winery experience. The tram ride is something you need to take as you can see the view of surrounding wineries as you climb to the top.
You should probably not do too many wineries in one day unless you are not doing the tastings or unless you have arranged to have a driver to navigate the roads. We went to these wineries over a period of several days. One of the last ones we visited was probably our favorite. It was called V Sattui. You can buy their wines and some cheese and have a picnic out in their picnic grove which is what we did.
After we had taken in as many of the wineries as we wanted, we traveled to the Pacific Grove area. Join me next week as we travel to that area which includes the famous 17 mile drive along the coast.
