Honig is a small, family-owned winery and was one of the first tasting rooms Tom & I visited when we moved to the Napa Valley five years ago.
That was, of course, pre-kiddo. And while we had a wonderful visit then and have been long-time fans of their wines, we hadn’t thought of the winery as being kid-friendly.
So while we were out & about this past weekend, we gave them a quick call (tastings are by appointment only, so be sure to call ahead), and to our delight, got in that afternoon.
Recently, I wrote about this time of year as being ideal to visit because the tasting rooms tend to not be busy. And indeed, we were the only ones there for most of our visit.
Our tasting took place seated at a long table in an open, comfortable room. As our host poured the first of the wines–their popular Sauvignon Blanc (which we purchased and enjoyed that evening), she asked if Samantha would like to check out the toy cabinet.
And boy, was she excited.
We spent the remainder of the tasting–a second Sauvignon Blanc, two Cabernet Sauvignons and Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc–with kiddo happily occupied.
And when she did grow bored, she headed out to the expansive patio (easily viewable from the tasting room) and explored.
