Visit to Domaine Carneros

In Uncategorized on February 8, 2010 at 9:57 pm

I took a spur-of-the-moment trip to Napa today. Long story, but I decided to stop in at Domaine Carneros, a fantastic CA Pinot Noir and Sparkling wine house. It is sparking wine, not Champagne, since it doesn’t come from the French region of Champagne, but if the criteria were winemaking rather than geography, this would certainly qualify to be called Champagne. They make fantastic sparklers that in my opinion can quite well stand up to Frenchies in comparable price range.
Their wines are great, and thoroughly worth picking up, and if you happen to be in Napa, you should definitely stop in to see the place.
