2 months into 2017 and I’m already ready to plan my next trip ( Any recommendations!?)
While thinking about where I want to go ( Morocco, Quebec, Nashville) I thought over all our travels of 2016 and my favorite trip of the year was hands down the week we spent in Napa. I wanted to share with you all some quick favorite stops we did along the way in case you want to plan your napa trip in 2017.
We rented a house in St. Helena California (we were a larger group so it was nice to hang by the infinity pool and have mountain top dinners at home.)
Now lets get to the important part, the wine tastings!
Here are the top 4 Vineyards we went to based on taste and experience!
- The first was Silver Oak ( We arrived later in the afternoon on a Wednesday with a group of 8 and they were able to give us a tour, a private tasting and the owner was there and gave us a tour of his private cellar- so I give this one 5 STARS) Here is a link to tour their Napa Valley Oakville Winery: Tasting Time!
2. The Next stop was Tamber Bey located in Calistoga, California at the home of Barry Waitte. This private tasting takes place at his lovely home and gardens. I am usually a cabernet fan but his 2015 Unoaked Chardonnay was the best white wine I’ve ever had in my whole life. Here is the Tamber Bey tour link: VISIT TAMBER BEY !
3. Third stop was Opus One Winery ! Their tasting room is open daily from 10am-4pm but in order to take a tour, which I highly recommend because the architecture is just as amazing as the taste of their 2013 vintage, you have to call to make a reservation.

4. And the last one we went to was Conn Creek ! Their tasting room is open every day from 10:30am-4:30pm, it is located in the heart of Napa Valley in St.Helena – Right off the main road. One of the smaller tastings we partook in but was delicious, amazing service, and in the best location!
