Girard Winery

Girard Winery was our last winery stop before we had our last supper in wine country. William from FolieA Deux Winery & Napa Cellars Tasting Room suggested us to head to Girard Winery since it’s near to Ad Hoc; he gave us a complimentary wine tasting card. Thanks William!
Girard Winery’s interior is more modern than the other wineries we’ve visited. It has a cute patio, but since we were pressed for time, we just stood at the bar.
The complimentary card allowed us to try four wines…which at this moment I can’t find the wine list with my notes…but I believe the tasting costed $15. If you go to their website you can print out a 2-for-1 tasting coupon.

I liked their wine tasting because they offer more of variety. They had a “bordeux” and the Stonefly Cabernet Sauvignon….
I’ll have to update this blog once I find my cheat sheet... One thing is for sure after sampling 22 wines in Napa/Yountville/Carneros is that I am not much of big fan of wines in those regions.
