Wine Tasting at the following family-owned Napa Valley wineries is sure to be a special and relaxed day. Each of these wineries are also “green” properties, which means that they are growing organic or sustainable vineyards. Either program does not use chemical pesticides and you can be sure the wines do not have anything in them but what mother nature intended. The tour begins in Rutherford Napa Valley at ZD Wines and travels south to Silverado Vineyards, a quick dash to Yountville for lunch and then cross the street to visit Somerston Wine Co.
