Napa Valley 2006

Sjoeblom Winery

I had the most wonderful afternoon together with Mikael and Susann at Don Giovanni's Restaurant in Napa a few weeks ago! They shared their passion for making champagne over a delightful lunch and a couple of glasses of their Chauvignon Reserve! Originally from Sweden, they founded their winery in 2000 and their first wine was released in 2002!!

Heading to Napa Valley for a tour of the wine country?? Well, ZD Wines is a "must visit" for anyone interested in tasting some full-flavored, aromatic wines! On a recent visit to ZD we explored the heavenly essence of their Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Riesling vintages. Exquisite!! pretty much wraps up anything I have to say about ZD Wines!!

Trinchero Family Estates / Sutter Home

Colleen Le Masters and Barry Wiss were kind enough to give us a complete tour of the winery. Education is one of the special features at Trinchero! They have wine courses held at Sutter Home and even have two games, the Napa Wine Challenge and the Aroma Wheel of Fortune that we played to test our wine knowledge and our senses!! Not common sense, but rather the different aromas and scents that are found in wines, some coming from the earth, some from fruits & berries and others from chemicals. They have dedicated a great deal of time and energy into educating consumers about wine. I applaud them for this great service!!

Introduction

Colleen Le Masters recounts the brief history of Sutter Home and gives us a tour of the Tasting Room.
