Travel Tip: Sutter Home Winery

Although Sutter Home Winery is not the classiest of classy here in Napa Valley, it is truly thrifty and exciting!  And it is a very fun experience.  Of all the visitors I've taken then, not one  has had a bad time.

Sutter Home Winery is right off Highway 29.  They offer a complimentary wine tasting for up to 5 wines.  The wines they taste rotate frequently, so there is always something new to try.  The tasting room staff is always delightful!  They have lots of stories and experiences to share, and they want to know where you are visiting from.

In addition to a fun wine sampling, the tasting room is covered with mustards, oils, and salsas to try.  Decorated throughout the room is also a series of wine related presents for all budgets - fun wine glass sandals, wine signs (modern and vintage), hand painted wine glasses, wine dishes, and much, much more. 

One of the best parts is the Sutter Home Wine sampler, a complete set of 9 Sutter Home wines each in a small plastic wine bottle.  This is perfect for air traveling - it doesn't break, it's light, and it allows you take home a sample of Sutter Home Winery.  My mom very much enjoyed her wine sampler when she visited in July.

In addition to the fun, relaxed wine tasting experience, the Sutter Home grounds are beautiful.  The house is still in use as a bed and breakfast, in which a distant traveler could always choose to stay at during their visit to Napa Valley.  The outside is usually adorned with some beautiful, highly colorful roses... everywhere.  It truly is a magical, energetic experience.  One for every crowd.  :)
