Larkmead Vineyards back porch and vineyards

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.
