The Napa Valley Welcome Center
It might be hard to narrow down the locations you would like to visit while in Napa Valley. With hundreds of wineries all offering something unique, narrowing down the list from 390 to under 20 can be challenging.
If you’ve never been to Napa before and didn’t have time to research locations before arriving I would suggest, you visit the Napa Valley Welcome Center. They have all of the information you need about wine country. Depending on the experience, you’re looking for they recommend different wineries.
The visitors center was our first stop, and we received some wonderful recommendations. One of the places they recommended was V. Sattui! We wouldn’t have stopped at this wonderful location otherwise.
Wine Tasting at V. Sattui
Upon arriving, we realized why they recommended V. Sattui. They offer way more than just wine tasting.
Tons of people were enjoying the gorgeous outdoors in the wineries picnic area. The gorgeous picnic grounds have plenty of shade with huge oak and walnut trees. If you did not prepare for a picnic, not a problem, V. Sattui has a cheese and deli store!
After tasting you can purchase your favorite wine, pair it with some cheese and crackers and take it outside to enjoy. What’s not to love!
If you happen to visit V. Sattui over the weekend, you can enjoy some delicious BBQ. Make this your lunch and wine tasting spot because they make wood-fired pizzas made to order with fresh mozzarella.
We happened to visit on Saturday, so we got the full experience. The wine was delicious, and the wine tender was a delight.
We enjoyed a lot of their wines, I ended up going home with a port, the 130th Anniversary Madeira. Even if you don’t like ports, I think you’ll love this one.
If you’re planning a trip to Napa Valley (check out my Ultimate Napa Valley travel guide), you have to have V. Sattui Winery on your list. If you’re visiting in the Spring or Fall wear a comfortable outfit. If you need some ideas on wine tasting outfits here are 4 Wine Tasting Outfits You’ll Love.
