Honig Vineyard & Winery, Rutherford, Napa Valley

Honig Vineyard & Winery is a family-owned vineyard and winery in Rutherford, Napa Valley, known for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. As most of us know, Napa Cabernets can be very expensive.

Not too long ago I celebrated (read-made it through) yet another birthday. I was happy to receive a gift card from a coworker so I ambled off to my neighborhood Bevmo to see what special birthday beverage could be found.
