Napa Valley Archives - 2 Hollywood Winos

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. They are world renown and while Honig has an amazing $90 2012 Single Vineyard Cabernet, we are glad they offer a $40 2012 Cabernet […]

A Day of Bubbly Tasting in Napa/Sonoma and a Dinner at Hess Collection

When we were up in Napa recently for the 2013 Napa Valley Film Festival – Jane had her film Citizen Hearst in the festival, we decided it would be fun to do a day of bubbly tastings at well known wineries (Mumm Napa, Domaine Chandon and Domaine Carneros) that specialize in sparkling wines. First, we […]

Reverie Barbera 2010 & a BV Muscat de Beaulieu for Dessert

It’s Friday night and it’s been an exhilarating and exhausting week! Jane has been working long hours with Leslie Iwerks on two Oscar video tributes for the upcoming Governors Awards – one for Angela Lansbury and one for the famous costume designer Piero Tosi. And on Wednesday night, we shot more episodes for our new […]

Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon “1886” 2008

Steve and I had a crazy August of work and travel but now we’re back! My birthday was on September 11th and I was looking forward to trying a special bottle for it. I chose the Ehlers Estate flagship “1886” Cabernet Sauvignon. We bought the bottle last year when we went to Napa with our friends […]

Highflyer Centerline Red 2008

There’s a small tasting room in Yountville, Napa where Highflyer Centerline Red is poured. The first time we came to this tasting room, Brandon, Sarah, Steve and I were enjoying a stroll down the cute streets of Yountville when lo and behold, we came upon the inviting tasting room of Somerston Wine Co. They had […]

Kuleto Estate in Napa Valley

Kuleto Estate is located on the top of a hill in Napa Valley, overlooking Rutherford and Lake Hennessey. It’s absolutely gorgeous after you traverse a steep, windy, one-lane road on the edge of a steep cliff. The road is so narrow that you have to tell them when you are arriving so they can direct […]

2006 Elu from St. Supery Vineyards and Winery & Chablis Food + Wine

We went to dinner on Friday night and decided to bring a bottle of wine to review. Since it was Christmas weekend, we decided to try a generous gift from one of Steve’s coworkers. She gave us the 2006 Elu from St. Supery Vineyards and Winery in Napa Valley. She knows we love wine and […]

A Film Festival in Northern California Wine Country: The Napa Valley Film Festival

  The Napa Valley Film Festival had its inaugural year in 2011. Jane was one of the lucky filmmakers to have one of her movies – Take Me Home – in the festival. (You can watch the film’s trailer here.) The festival played movies in Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga. Their venues ranged from […]

2009 Domaine Carneros Avant-Garde Pinot Noir

Arriving at Domaine Carneros in the Carneros AVA of Napa Valley, California, you feel as if you are touring the French Palace of Versailles. After climbing an innumerable set of stairs, you arrive at a bistro-style tasting room with pinkish-red walls and a beautiful fireplace. Of course, we were immediately drawn to the fireplace. What […]

2006 Rubicon Captain’s Reserve Cab Sauv

As our name suggests, we are two winos and how best to express that than by drinking a bottle of wine and telling you about it? We tend to be romantics – at least Steve accuses me of it – so you should expect our impressions to evoke a romantic love with the wine we […]
