V. Sattui Winery - St. Helena, CA
V. Sattui Winery is a popular destination for anyone visiting the Napa Valley Wine Country

V. Sattui has been one of my favorite wineries in the entire Napa Valley since I first visited them in 1993. 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!

Fenestra Winery is one of my two favorite wineries in Livermore Wine Country and Bob and I walked to their Cabernet & Chocolate tasting event this afternoon.

You really can’t go wrong with just about any Cabernet & Chocolate tasting event, but going to one at Fenestra Winery is quite a delectable experience!
