Secret Gem Alert: Etude Winery Napa Valley

Napa Valley is a wine lovers paradise with endless options of wineries to choose from.  From small productions out of a farmhouse or warehouse to large extravagant estates, there really is an option to suit each individual's style.

I've been to dozens of the wineries but one of my favorites that I continuously return to is Etude Winery.  This winery is my Goldilocks winery - not too big, not too small, just right and very comfortable.

And the best part is... the wine!   Etude produces various varietals but they are known for making a phenomenally smooth and delicious pinot noir.   You don't need to be a sommelier to know that this is a high quality wine that will make your mouth do a little dance.  

Beyond their delicious pinot noir, what I really love about Etude is the relaxed yet elegant wine tasting room with an outdoor area that has tables and wicker chairs and benches so you can get some sunshine while you enjoy your glass (or glasses) of wine.

Everyone I’ve taken to Etude has also enjoyed the fact that you can walk around the very well maintained property to see the vineyards, beautiful flowers, and serene landscape.
