Oh man, that sounds like fun. I have a bunch of friends that go every year, invite me every year and something inevitably comes up…..every time.

At any rate, three wineries on MY must see list (if I ever get there)….

Siverado – One of my favorite wines.

Lamborn – the best damn zin made, bar none. Great folks, one of the best wine makers in the business (Heidi Barrett).

Mondovi – take their wine tasting class.

Yes, love to hear thoughts on the wine train.

As for favs to see? WAAAYYY too many too count in the California region.
But offering up the best some have had will help me fill out my cellar with new brands that i have yet to try!!
Love the recent round of suggestions. I'll go shopping again next weekend.

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone, I'm going to try to get to all the wineries mentioned. My wife got our reservations in for the wine train today, I'm starting to get excited about the trip, I just hope the weather holds.

I blindly picked out a great Pinot Noir at dinner Saturday - Waterstone. Lucky find! It was Napa Valley, I'm sure. Perfect with my escargot ravioli and grilled lamb - if your train stops there have a glass for me!

Thanks Amie, nice find on a boutique Pinot, that ones going on the list also.
One of the things that I really like about Napa and Sonoma, is for the smaller wineries they will have a large tasting room in town, it will represent 10 or 12 different vineyards. So for the Waterstone, and the Lamborn that Mike mentioned, I can park in the town center and do some serious tasting, although after about 8 tastes my wife refers to it as just drinking.

Not just sidewalks. I find mine crawling up the garage door.

I have never understood why the snails you buy in the store are from the Philippines or Thailand. Don't we grow snails that are as good as anyones? Or are tropical snails more moist?

Nah, they probably are domestic snails you're eating, but they tell you they're tropical snails so you'll buy them. I mean.......would you want to eat them if they told you they were from John's garage door?
