Wine tasting in Napa, Sonoma and Paso Robles
17.06.2018
 
The winery tour in Napa, Sonoma and Paso Robles was conducted by Nurit and Asher Tishler
and by Rachel Stull during May-June of 2018.
Napa was our main focus in this trip. We visited 14 wineries in Napa, 1 winery in Sonoma,
and 2 wineries in Paso Robles. We tasted the wineries' current releases (sometimes from barrels)
and some older ones.    
High quality mature wines from Napa and Sonoma are usually unavailable for purchase in the
wineries and should be purchased in professional wine stores or in other professional outlets
(local importers, internet stores, auctions, etc.), since most of their (highly demanded) production is
pre-sold (sometimes several years) in advance. Wines from the last release and, sometimes,
from the last 2-3 releases may be available in some, but not all, wineries.
