Congrats Tami!!! Well done! If you get a chance, stop by Sullivan - very small but with exceptionally good reds. I don't think the bigger tours typically go there, so you may have to venture out on your own.

Happily married since 2008

    We did a private tour at V. Sattui and they took us in the back where everything is actually made and stored, very cool.
    I would recommend trying to get a cave tour in somehow if you can. I have never done that but my aunt did one time and said it was amazing.
    Oh yes, the cave tours are awesome. We went on a 'field trip' Friday to a winery in NC that is part of our portfolio and went into the wine caves there. We did barrel tastings as well to see the differences between the bottled wine and what is still aging in the barrels.

    Oh, and my boss said to expect long, drunken, hungover days while there. He says we start at like 8am -- tasting at the first vineyard ... and it's a never ending cycle until about 10pm. OMG! Thank goodness wine is good for the heart!
