Drive north on highway 29. Depending on the time of year, your windows maybe open or the heat will be on. No matter the season, the drive north on highway 29 will be a beautiful view of the mountain ranges west and east. You will be driving into the heart of the Napa Valley. As you cross through into the AVA (American Viticulture Area) well known as Rutherford, look for Zinfandel Lane. Turn right. Look for the sign and take another right. You have arrived at Raymond Vineyards.
Each winery in the Napa Valley is unique. Some are grand, some are humble homes. The experience in the wineries not only depends on the wine itself, but also the heart and soul of the people. One of my favorite stops is Raymond Vineyards. It’s unique, with multiple tasting rooms, a stellar wine selection and the passion of family, from one generation to the next.
The care of the wine starts in the vineyard, the land and the management. The vineyards are certified organic and Biodynamic. The winery is 100% powered by renewable solar energy. It’s what makes me proud to be a part of this great wine industry. The video speaks (no pun intended) to the people and the wine. Cheers!
