Tour of Napa Valley, Part II

One of the wineries we visited was Trespass. This was truly a small winery, owned by Don Gallagher (pictured), who truly loves his craft. It's only 5 acres of land, that he bought 17 years ago. Called Trespass, because teenagers used to steal away there to hang out, back when his kids were teenagers. Cute, no? This was probably my favorite visit of the day. This winery wasn't open to the public. He didn't have a tasting room. Just a clean picnic table and his wine.
Here we are with Don Gallagher, owner of Trespass Winery.
We headed off next, to Frias Winery.
This winery is owned by the Frias family and run by young Manny Frias. This was another private winery. Manny really took the time to sit down with us and tell us his family story. He tells it best, here. This is truly a family business, Manny's dad, Manny, Sr, stopped by to chat with us too.
The final winery we visited was Del Dotto. I'll be honest, after a day of wine tasting, don't remember too much about this one. There were caves and marble... Who can remember? But thanks to Mariah and Kelly (pictured) had a fantastic day!!
