Our 2018 Winter Newsletter
Winter has come to Napa Valley. The days are shorter - and colder - and some welcome rain has finally arrived this month. The season has its own kind of beauty: thick, brown vines that have lost their leaves dominate the landscape, and a carpet of vivid, green grass lays atop the vineyards. Clouds hug the hillsides, and fog rolls across the valley floor. Napa is truly a unique place to visit any time of the year...and you can't beat the hotel prices in February!
The cold weather is a time for hearty reds. We invite you to go online and stock up on Cabernet and Red Blends for your winter nights, or better still, come visit us at our St. Helena tasting room - have a seat by the fire, enjoy a glass of Cabernet, and see all the beauty that winter in Napa as to offer.
