Vineyard of the Black Chickens! Had a great trip here. Given a wonderful, informative tour and had a family style picnic lunch. A must see vineyard when in Napa.

Reservation required. $25 per person for 5 good wines tasting, if you purchase 3 bottles they exempt the fare.. The people are very knowledgable and nice. The ambient is good. If you are looking for a nice zinfandel tasting go there.
