Winetasting Overlooking The Vineyards

Bouchaine Vineyards in the Carneros Region of Napa County provides a lovely spot to taste some quality wine. On a sunny day, sitting on Bouchaine's deck overlooking the vineyards and tasting excellent Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and other varietals provides the perfect wine country experience. If the weather isn't cooperating, the friendly staff will make sure you still have an enjoyable time at the counter in the tasting room.

If you plan ahead, Bouchaine can provide you with a picnic lunch on the deck. Their "Table for Two" provides a picnic basked with lunch for two adults and a bottle of wine. You may order as many baskets as you need for your group, but must call (800) 654-9463) at least 24 hours in advance to arrange your wine country lunch.

Bouchaine is located a little off the beaten track in Carneros at 1075 Buchli Station Road. Be sure to take a map with you (available on Bouchaine's website) as Buchli Station Road is not well marked and Bouchaine's sign at the intersection of Las Amigas and Buchli Station is easy to miss. Bouchaine is open daily from 10:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. During the winter, their hours are reduced so check before you visit if traveling between November and April.

Better yet, let Blue Heron Custom Tours take you a private tour of Carneros that includes a visit to Bouchaine and other great wineries. To book your custom tour, call me at (866) 326-4237 or e-mail me by clicking here.
