Shipping Wine

by 18carat

We live in San Diego and will be flying into SF to visit Napa and Sonoma this fall and then fly to Seattle. I hope to buy some wine (not all from the same winery. Any suggestions on how to get the wine back to San Diego? Many thanks in advance!

I'm sure there's a UPS store up there. The wineries can probably do it for you but I'm sure you will be paying a premium.

Actually, go to Napa Valley and Sonoma and do taste samples. You do not have to swallow the wine as there are containers to spit into, yes spitting is the preferred way to taste the different wines. That way you can visit more wineries and not lose your ability to tell the differences in wines that appeal to you. If you are driving and want to drink the sample tastes then have a person with you that doesn't drink to drive. You should be able to drive safely if you use the spit method. Most wineries will have a limit of 3-5 tastes of their wines for a set fee. A few do not charge, but they are far between. Most wineries are open 7 days a week from about 10:30am-4:30pm. Some are by appointment only. Try not to go on a Fri-Sat-Sun as these are very busy with both traffic and tasters. The real secret is that you most likely can buy the labels of the wines you enjoyed tasting at home. Write down your favorites and try to find them in San Diego, which has great wine stores. Unless you are a member of a winery club or have a discount coupon, you will pay top dollar at the winery and at home the labels you found may be less expensive. There is the exception such as V.Sattui which sells strictly from their location in St. Helena. They can, as well as all wineries will ship any purchase to your home. I trust this helps. Oh, bring a bottle or two back to your hotel near Napa & Sonoma. You do want to drink some wine on your outing. Safe travels.

Travel Tips for Napa

Share your tastings

by GracesTrips

There is nothing wrong with paying for 1 tasting amongst two people. You really need to pace yourself if you plan to do this all day long. Plus, you just want a "taste". Otherwise, drinking too much wine after a while, all the wines start to taste the same.

Napa has a lot to offer during the day! Make the most of it. A number of quaint shops are here and there. You should stop in. The only thing I didn't get to do on my list was visit the Bouchon Bakery. I would have loved to pick up some pastries!

Napa Versus Sonoma

by timquinn

Napa was more commercialized, Sonoma was more country (and arguably nicer).

Napa was great when it wasn't busy... you could hit lots at once. Sonoma on the other hand was a better all-day event.

Napa have very few wineries with places to have picnics, almost every Sonoma one did

Don't taste what you drink at home..

by Herkbert

Be adventurous when cruising through the valley. If there is a wine that you just love, stop by and visit the winery and have some fun. Then go and try a few places you've never heard of. The tasting rooms are a great place to experiment and learn about wines. Some wineries have special wines or blends that are only available when you visit, so take advantage of all of their offerings.

If you normally drink Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, try some Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Mourvedre, Syrah, Sangiovese or any of the other red varietals available.

The same goes for you white wine drinkers. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are great wines, but try something you've not had before such as Pinot Gris, Colombard or Chenin Blanc.

Packing Bottles to Return Home

by atufft

If you buy some bottles of wine over the internet, save the packer. Then, bring whatever styrofoam packers you have inside the luggage. If you don't have these, or don't have enough bottle packers at the time of leaving, wrap and tape each bottle inside a plastic grocery bag. Seal the wine as well as possible just in case the cork moves. Then, surround the bottles with dirty laundry and shoes to pad them and keep them from shifting around too much. Glass wine bottles are very durable at the base, but the necks are a potential breakage point. Champagne bottles need extra care. Even so, a case or so of wine (12 bottles) can be safely packed inside a large airline bag destine for check-in as long as they are separated from each other and from the exterior edges of the bag. Then, take the rest as carry-on. Large bottles are valuable, require extra care, and so should be packed by the winery for you. Styrofoam 12 and 6 bottle packers that isolate each bottle can be safely taped and checked-in as luggage. Dress casually, but not cheaply. Many times when working in the tasting room, I found that intoxicated customers, women with low cut or tank tops or men with flowery Hawaiian style shirts and sandals, presented a version of America that other tourists sneered at. From late spring through fall harvest, I recommend khaki shorts, fine fabric short sleeve polo shirts, and casual leather shoes with soles able to trek through a little dirt or over the wet pavement of a cellar room floor. Jewelry and fancy cars are OK. Theft and robbery is rare in the wine country. Bring anti-acids and motion sickness pills. Driving the windy roads of the wine back country will bring the worst out of a slightly inebriated passenger. Bring a wide angle lense for shooting images of winery equipment. Make sure to bring plenty of memory for the digital camera. It helps to have plenty to snack on during busy wine tasting days. The more wine consumed, the more food required to keep it under control. Stop at Oakville Grocery or some other market in the valley to stock up on food for the road. Don't try to be on a diet when in the wine country, but during meals focus on quality, not quantity. Some of the world's best restaurants are in the wine country.
