Wine clubs in Napa
The Napa wineries are something every wine lover should see at some point in his or her life. Every step of the winemaking process, from the crushing of the grapes to the bottling of the wine, is carried out at the winery. You may want to join a wine club while you’re in Napa. Membership in a wine club can offer you savings on the wines you buy.
One of the best Napa wineries near St. Helena
Some of the best California wines come from Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards in Napa Valley. Just a 10-minute drive from downtown St. Helena, Anderson’s produces world-class wines at affordable prices. The vineyard is a 40-acre estate just south of Howell Mountain. The vineyard offers you the chance to meet the owners and wine-makers and taste excellent wine stored in a cave. Wine Merchants Gourmet includes them in a Middle Valley tour.
An example of what this winery has to offer is the Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine that comes only from the best of the vintage. The 2011 Signature Cab is an intensely dark purple and red wine with an intense aroma of dark berries, smoke, blue flowers, anise and other spices, tar and minerals. It tastes as good as it smells, with a fruity palate of blackberries and blueberries with hints of violets, licorice and smoke. This is a rare vintage, produced in a cool year when yields were low. By ordering six bottles or more per year, you can join their wine club, giving you discounts on many of their finest wines.
