Well hey there fellow wine lovers! It’s another edition of “Winery Wednesday” and man oh man do I have something exciting to share…a brand new winery in Napa!!!
A couple of weekends ago I headed up Highway 29 with a friend for some more wine adventures. Our second stop of the day was at the highly popular Prisoner Winery! The winery opened only about 5 weeks ago. After driving past the winery for the past year while it was still under construction, I was so excited it was finally open.
We walked up to the gorgeous new building and was greeted with a glass of Chenin Blanc. Perfect for the warmer winter afternoon. While enjoying our light and crisp glasses we headed into the beautiful main tasting room. Since it was a warmer day, we decided to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine.
The outside area was modern, fun, and comfortable with market lights strung above the whole courtyard area.
We began our tasting with a glass of the 2017 Rosé, again another very refreshing and light taste.
Since we were on a little bit of a time crunch, they poured the remaining three reds side by side. We enjoyed the 2016 Blindfold blend, 2016 The Prisoner their flagship red blend, and the 2016 Headlock charbono.
We also received a complimentary food pairing of Butternut squash with pumpkin seeds and olive oil, sell salt crackers. Yum!
The entire ambience of the tasting area was relaxing and comfortable. The separate spaces allowed for groups to hangout and chat while sipping on some great wine.
I have heard a lot about this winery and now I see why! Next time you are in wine country and want to check out a brand new winery, make sure to set up a time for Prisoner Winery.
