Why 3 wineries?

We like to think we are going to hit more wineries than we actually do. I’m guilty as charged on that thinking. While it’s easy to mathematically formulate you can get to 4, 5 or 6 wineries in a day, the simple truth is, alcohol plays a big part we don’t always calculate.

I figure that two wineries is too few in a day and four is just too much. With 4-5 tastes per stop, you’re going on 15+ tastes in one day. If the alcohol doesn’t hit you by then, you’re palate might start to fatigue. Instead of bumping up to that preverbal number, I find it’s better to plan for 3 wineries and simply enjoy the taste without worrying. Take time to enjoy each stop instead of rushing to the next.

It’s a quick read

Each chapter is about a 5 minute read. The goal is not to spend hours staring at this book but rather to read and go forth and explore. I want you to go out and wine taste, not spend the day plotting where you are going to go. After all, the mission of Beyond Napa Valley is to discover new wines and wineries. The only real way of doing that is to gas up the car (unless you’re in a Tesla or Leaf) and try some new wines at a few wineries you’ve yet to explore.
