Everything about Sonoma's +DaVero Farms & Winery appealed to me. When I arrived at DaVero’s humble farm, I suspected that this would be another impactful wine experience, and it was. At DaVero, they have elected to produce the best of Italy in its sister climate of Dry Creek Valley, unhurriedly, with great attention to quality, authenticity, land, and community.

Arriving at The Dog and Oyster Vineyard, you can feel the quintessential Southern ambiance. Large swaths of vibrant, green vineyards line the meandering, dirt road. Slowly, after a right turn just past the Merlot, the vines part to reveal The Wine Stand. It's a quaint cottage-like tasting room with a screened porch similar in concept to a local, country “fruit” stand. Glistening, crushed oyster shells pave the parking lot reminding visitors that they’re in oyster country. If you are in Virginia, make it a point to seek out this little gem. You won’t be disappointed.

Some of the biggest, fanciest, and most famous tasting rooms in all of the Napa Valley would be visible from that picnic table, were it not for the grapevines and the trees, and yet it’s difficult to imagine an experience at any of them surpassing that which we had seated casually, talking and sipping, and enjoying a warm summer day around a tired, old picnic table, being serenaded by peacocks with the smell of smoke wafting about in the morning air. If you’re heading to Calistoga, I suggest you call ahead and arrange a tasting at the +Tedeschi Family Winery - Napa Valley, CA, where the excellent wines will be but a compliment to a truly extraordinary experience. Take the time not only to taste, but also to talk, and you will quickly learn what makes the Tedeschi Family Winery a special place.

Reverie translates loosely to “daydream” in French, and amidst the cultivated gardens and unthinkably tall stands of redwoods, it would be irreverent, and probably impossible, not to do so. It is a small operation, producing only 2.5-3K cases of wine annually, and seeing only 3-4 groups of guests a day, representing one of the more exclusive experiences to be had anywhere in the area. The wines are incredible, the service excellent, and the environment perhaps unparalleled.

In 2015, the new era of +MacRostie Winery & Vineyards hospitality began with the opening of their modern and beautiful Estate House a few miles outside of Healdsburg, California. Surrounded by Thale’s Vineyard, both indoor and outdoor seating options offer splendid views of the Russian River Valley. While the pinot noirs were fantastic, I could not take my mind off of the chardonnays. I have become picky about chardonnay and find it difficult to find ones I really enjoy unless they are from Burgundy. Although I usually shy away from chardonnays that go through 100% primary and secondary malolactic fermentation, these three were nothing short of outstanding. ~+Elizabeth Smith

Though the Napa Valley continues to grow in population and as a tourist destination while failing to expand in size, a person can still hear the nickering of a horse in this rare and beautiful environment. +Tamber Bey Vineyards is an idyllic setting in which to experience the wine industry, and for anyone who shares the Waitte’s common love of viticulture and all things equestrian, it’s the must-visit location in all of California wine country.

The classics are invaluable. Contained in them is our history and from that an idea of where we might be going in the future. The Pellet Estate is a Napa Valley classic – an ancient vineyard that has been resurrected to help guide an industry into the future. Meticulous attention to detail, the work of gifted artisans, and a vision for what great wine can be, this is a place you need to seek out the next time you’re in the Valley.

+Chateau Montelena Winery is a special place. You may have seen it featured in a movie, or you may have read about them as the frenzy over the 40th anniversary of the Paris tasting reached a crescendo earlier this spring. But frenzies come and go, and what remains is that which stands the test of time. This never includes people, who are undeniably mortal and never long for the world, but it can certainly include their legacy. At Chateau Montelena, that legacy includes a look into the history of what today is one of the world’s most famous wine-producing regions. It is a story that encompasses the pioneering spirit of the ‘49ers, the rule of law, the meaningful contributions of immigrants, the rebirth of the Napa Valley, and the vision of a man who simply wanted to make great Cabernet, which ultimately he did. ~ITheeWine
