Visiting Napa, Sonoma or Oregon’s Willamette Valley is a feast for the senses. But making the most of the experience entails some preparation. Not Boy Scout level — always leave time to “wing it” — but having a basic game plan, or at least some targets, is crucial. To help you sort through the hundreds of wineries and scores of restaurants, Decant This! offers up customized itineraries, based on a questionnaire that you fill out and my extensive legwork (a dirty job, but …) in these regions. The price: a fraction of what you’ll spend on the trip.
You’ll receive a personalized list of recommended wineries and restaurants in the area, based on your responses to a short questionnaire as well as my years of experience in the area. Plus, you’ll receive pointers on logistics, lodgings, tasting-room tips and options for other diversions to help you make the most of your trip.
