ITINERARY

9:00 AM Meet in Oakville *

Review the geologic origin of Napa, the mega landslide that produced the hills in the Oakville AVA and discuss the 9 soil domains in the AVA along with a tasting. 

Then move north to Calistoga to the Palisades Vineyard for a picnic lunch with wine tasting below the Palisades cliffs. We will review the volcanic geology of Calistoga, tour the heritage vineyard and examine “core stones”.

 

By mid-afternoon we will move to the west side of Calistoga to the Eddy Winery and vineyard and in the cave have a tasting of a variety of mountain grown Cabs, all from volcanic soils.

 

6:00 PM Wrap up
