If you're thinking that I put the wrong picture into this post, I'm not surprised. It hardly looks like a winery tasting room, does it? In fact, it is the Crystal Cellar at Raymond Vineyards near St. Helena.
After visiting scores of wineries and reviewing most of them over the past decade, it's easy to get a little jaded and bored with the sameness of many Napa wine-tasting experiences. Raymond is so different - and fun - chic and unusual that it was a distinct pleasure to visit and we're happy to add it to our list of the best Napa tasting room experiences.
