Happy Winery Wednesday everyone, thank you so much for visiting my page! In this edition of Winery Wednesday I want to share with you a pretty great winery to visit if you are heading to Napa. I have been to Napa Cellars a handful of times now and each time I enjoy it more and more. Everyone at Napa Cellars always is so friendly and welcoming, you definitely feel a sense of comfort and relaxation when you walk in the doors.
We were offered a glass of the Napa Cellars Sauvignon Blanc, which is perfect for a refreshing wine. Then we were escorted to our reserved table and lounge seating outside. Their outdoor tasting area is complete with views of the vineyards and occasionally the Napa Valley Wine Train passes by in the near distance.
At our spot we had our full Reserve Tasting flight set up with a delicious cheese board to pair alongside the wine. Every wine we had was apart of their Reserve Collection. We began with a 2016 Reserve Chardonnay complete with citric notes of lemon and orange. I really enjoyed this Chardonnay as it was not too heavy of a Chardonnay and was pretty light. From there we went to the 2016 Reserve Pinot Noir sourced from the famous Carneros wine region, ideal for creating the perfect medium-bodied Pinot.
As we continued into the 2016 Malbec, which consisted of Cabernet and merlot, the cheese and wine pairings were really delightful. We ended our tasting with a 2016 Winemaker Series Meritage with 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. I really enjoyed the complexity in this wine and would love to pair with a steak dinner or a heavier pasta dish.
The incredible wines showcased in their Reserve tasting flight and cheese pairing were great, and the tasting is only $45.00 per person by the way!
Along with our tasting we enjoyed all the features their location has to offer, including a variety of lawn games (and corn hole, my personal favorite!) At Napa Cellars you can bring your own food and picnic outdoors – there are plenty of picnic tables and lounge seating available for guests to enjoy a meal and beautiful views. And if that isn’t enough, the winery is dog and kid friendly. The whole family can join along to have fun at winery!
It truly is the perfect family friendly winery in Napa but at the same time it is also a great place for you and your significant other to visit for a date day. Cheers to Winery Wednesday and thank you for reading along!
