Sonoma (or Napa?) Valley winery question
Posted 25 July 2010 - 05:27 AM
I'm sure it's one of the older wineries, and with a bit of luck it hasn't changed names and changed hands. Still, it can be a long search trying to find the winery by this description. So I ask the cogniscenti of the Northern wine country: help, please! Anyone know which winery this is?
I DO know the difference between the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, by the way. I just don't know where they took their "wine country" tour although I suspect it was the Sonoma Valley.

Most notable is the famous hand-carved wine cask collection. Local winemaking scenes, various grape varietals and an array of birds have been chiseled into hundreds of antique redwood casks. They were carved by a friend of Samuele’s son, August, the second-generation family member to assume control of the winery.
Here's a link describing the location (from a wedding destination POV) that might help rule it in or rule it out.
good luck with the search!
