Our December Featured Wine Destination is Larkmead Vineyards. Located just east of Highway 29 between St. Helena and Calistoga in Napa Valley, Larkmead is easy to find and worth a visit. Most of their wines are produced in limited quantity and available only to club members and tasting room visitors.
Larkmead doesn’t produce a wide range of wines – about half a dozen big reds featuring Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and a very nice Sauvignon Blanc. Wines are produced from grapes grown on their estate, which features unique soils and growing conditions that produce spectacular wines. These excellent reds retail around $100 to $150.
The tasting room experience is casual and unhurried. Tasting is by appointment only from about 10am to 3pm daily. Click for details on how to reserve a visit in our Wine Destinations directory: Larkmead Vineyards.
