Morning in the Winery: 2.

I took a little time off from pruning this morning to attend the 2nd annual Morning in the Winery (MITW) event.  Sponsored by the Napa Valley Vintners, and billed as a "casual, community open house," MITW gives locals the chance to experience a winery in a way, perhaps, that most people don't get the chance to do, like the opportunity to wander through tank rooms, barrel rooms and crush pads.
There were 5 wineries to choose from; Spelletich, Monticello, Markham, Dutch Henry and Cuvaison.  Vinomaker and I decided to visit Cuvaison because we fancied a bit of a drive out to Carneros.  It was a gorgeous morning for a visit to a winery.  Cuvaison winemaker Steve Rogstad hosted our tour which was fun and informative.  I learned that Cuvaison is Fish Friendly.  Yikes, I think everyone will be Fish Friendly soon, (it seems the new, trendy thing to do).  MITW is a good event, hope there will be a number 3.

VG: The landscape is spectacular!
I'm not just fish 'friendly', I love fish;-)

NHW: Los Carneros is very pretty, different from up-valley.
