We drove up to Napa to go on a tour of a winery. I chose this one ( I don't drink wine but new the name). We get there and there is a $25 charge. Seemed like a decent price so we did it. We were first brought into a room and told a little history. Then we went and sat on the side of the fields (not really in them but not away either). We then were brought into the factory and got to see them picking the stems and leaves away from the grapes and then they were put into a machine that took them off the vine.
Finally we were brought into some other rooms and told about the whole process and what not and then the wine tasting. Not being a wine drinker I wasn't really looking forward to this part. Hubby of course was. Anyway we sit and try the 3 different wines were given. I didn't like any of them. My husband on the other hand liked them all. When our guide found out that I never tasted a wine I liked he went and got a fourth bottle for everyone to try. He said he would find one I liked so drink until I found one. Well the first bottle he chose was a very grapey tasting sweet wine. It was good. I was pleasantly surprised at the taste.
I enjoyed my experience but after calling a few more winerys and hearing they were either free or very cheap (under $10) I was a little annoyed at paying the price for the name.
