Where in the Wine World is WineTalent

Just back from great appointments in the Napa Valley. Warm today--85 degrees. Had a wonderful lunch at this restaurant--Hacked Salad, no corkage, and my friend had the Ahi Tuna Salad. Where am I?

Where in the Wine World is WineTalent

Had a great day out and about in wine country. Many of the wineries are getting ready for First Sip, the area's wine weekend being held this Saturday and Sunday. Stopping at several wineries today, I saw familiar faces and made new acquaintances. I stopped by this winery today. With a family heritage that is now part of the largest winery companies, this winery was started back in the early 1900's. What a sight to see today--quite an impressive winemaking operation. Where in the wine world am I?

Update: Here's another image from the barrel room--a small corner of it.
