It’s a lot of fun Chess. You’d enjoy it I’m sure. I don’t know when my next Napa trip will be. I’m planning a trip to Washington wine country now. Sometime in October after crush and hunting season. I don’t know Washington wine very well, so this should be pretty fun. I plan to fly into Seattle and drive west. I’ll spend a couple days in Yakima, then continue over to Walla Walla.

Unfortunately timing has not worked well for us in the past three years for never ending personal reasons and some tragedies (one of which was delivered news to my ears even this week).
However, we have discussed how we haven't been on a real true us vacation now for years and are more serious about planning something for next year.
The question is, California or the UK first?

True indeed! I have had their Pinot before and it was superb. I am only about a 35 minute drive to their vinyards. I saw that on the news a while back and was not surprised at all. Their wines are top notch.

Canada also makes excellent riesling, gewurztraminer IMO and of course the only place to get true ice wine.

I will be down in the London/Niagara area again this summer. I plan on trying to find this vineyard.
I will also be stopping at Lailey and Marynissen.

Hey Chess. Another winery to put on your list is Crown Bench Estates in the Beamsville area. They have a number of awarded wines including a Chardonay that took 6th and 2nd in the world at some prestigous European competitions a few years ago.

They have some really unique and highly regarded ice wines as well, including one with a little hot chilli in it.

They should be kicked for that one.

It was quite tasty served up with a nice 5 year old cheddar. Hey, sometimes you have to experiment a little.

We have this John Cleese 'documentary' dvd about wine regions and such. It runs 91 minutes. Haven't watched it yet. I'll be curious to see if it really is a documentary or slapstick attempt at understanding wine.

Missed the reply. All I can say is don't knock it until you try it.

I should've mentioned i'm not a fan of hot sauce to begin with.

They didn't add hotsauce, just some bite from a hot pepper.

Hot sauce. Sheesh, I draw the line at tomatos in wine. ;\)

Here's the challenge. If you are in the Niagra area, check out Crown Bench and give this icewine a try. Then you can tell me what a wanker I am for liking it.

Besides, while you're there you can try out the chocolate icewine.
