Conn Creek

Conn Creek is located at Rutherford, practically across the street from Auberge du Soleil, so my friends and I came here after having brunch at the Auberge du Soleil Restaurant. This was the first winery stop for us and we all had a great time, mainly because Brittany was super awesome. My friend and I had never gone wine tasting at a winery before and Brittany took the time to explain everything in detail for us - how the taste of Cabs from St. Helena and Rutherford differ from one another even if it's the same year, her favorite restaurants in the Napa area, etc.

Wine Tasting Flight.

The wine I liked the most from the list above is the St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon. Although majority of the other wines were "just okay" in my books, I would come back and try other wines in the future because I had such a good time here. Great ambiance, friendly staff, and really nice decor.

I really like the wall display of their wines.

Wine Tags.

Lol.

My favorite one of them all.

So true. :) But blurry unfortunately. =\

I love all the different witty signs they display throughout the cellar. If I wasn't moving, I probably would have bought one of the big signs. Already picked up the "Note To Self, Drink More Wine" wine tag, now I just need to wait to get other cute signs like "Dear Fork, ... Sincerely Spoon"... jk... or maybe not...

Ending this trip with a picture with our new buddy.

Wine: 4/5
Service: 5/5
Ambiance: 5/5
Overall: 5/5
Highlight: The amazingly friendly staff
Value: With how much you get coming out of the tasting - drinks, knowledge, making a new friend lol... it is totally worth it. I plan to come back here sometime in the future.
