V. Sattui Winery – St. Helena, CA

St. Helena, CA 94574 – V. Sattui Winery (Gamay Rouge)

V. Sattui has been one of my favorite wineries in the entire Napa Valley since I first visited them in 1993. It is a popular destination for anyone visiting the Napa Valley Wine Country.

I love their Muscat, Riesling, Port and Madeira, but their Gamay Rouge is #1 on my list! It pairs wonderfully with my Rotisserie Chicken Salad with Grapes.

Yes, it’s crowded…but it’s so worth it as a vital part of the Napa Valley wine tasting experience. I love the beautiful grounds and the shady areas around the picnic tables.

I love the extensive cheese selection in their deli!

Despite the crowds, I will continue to visit V. Sattui whenever I need to stock up Gamay Rouge!
