Napa Wine Country

Last month Alex was at a workshop at UC Davis, so Jim and I flew over to California and treated him to a Napa wine weekend!  It's been a challenge to find wines that are oak free and not put through malolactic fermentation (increases the histamine levels), but we found several that were very nice.

I have to share these photos from Sterling Vineyards near Calistoga.  It was one of the most gorgeous wineries I've ever been to - and you get to take a gondola up a mountain to get to the tasting rooms!

Their pinot gris and sauvignon blancs are safe to drink - we tested them out thoroughly!  Their riesling is also no oak, no malo, but I'm not a big riesling fan.  Even at that, it wasn't bad, though.
