Yes, it’s outrageous that Napa wineries gouge visitors by charging up to $20 for a tasting of their vintages.

Some charge $10, a few charge $5 and a warm-hearted handful charge nothing.

The following is a partial list of the last of the magnanimous wine growers:

Frank Family

1091 Larkmead Road               Calistoga

August Briggs

333 Silverado Trail                        Calistoga

Pope Valley

6613 Pope Valley Rd.                        Pope Valley

Frogs Leap

Appointments Required      707-963-4704

Heitz Cellars

436 St.Helena Highway            St.Helena

Sutter Home

277 St. Helena Highway            St. Helena

  1. Add to your list of wineries offering special prices to seniors: Jacuzzi and Cline…both on Hwy 121 in So. Sonoma. At both: first 5 tastes free, senior discount for purchases 15-20%
