In all of our times coming to Napa, one thing we have not done much of is head over to Sonoma. That's not a reflection on Sonoma it's simply because we have made so many friends in Napa, it's hard to find time make the short and well worth drive over to Sonoma.
A wine we bought at the auction last year was Jean Edwards Cellars. They make about 800 cases a year...and husband and wife team (see a pattern here) and they source their fruit some of our favorite and most well-known mountain vineyards.
They also have a great tasting room in Sonoma which is now where we will be sending everyone who is looking for a Sonoma tasting recommendation! We tasted through their portfolio and also got a sample from the barrel of their auction lot for this year.
Premiere Napa Valley Week is also about making new friends. Last night Napa Valley Vintners set up a dinner for us with the owners of Alpha Omega Winery. Robin and Michelle Baggett treated all of our crew to spectacular dinner at Cole Chop House in downtown Napa. We have long loved their wines as well as the fact that they throw the best post-game party of the year they throw after PNV each year!
Camille & Claire made it up for their first trip to Napa...quite an introduction during PNV Week!
