There is no best. There are famous and obscure, beautiful and plain, open to all or requiring an appointment. Depends on what you're looking for.
a place with a cheap wine tasting, where you don't HAVE to do wine tasting to enter ...my boyfriend hates wine ! somewhere we can sit outside maybe have a picnic ?
There is truly something for everyone: a winery with wine tasting for someone who doesn't like wine!
I love wine ! just my boyfriend wony even entertain trying some!
Lots and lots of people go to wineries and don't do wine tasting - they're called designated drivers :-) It's not unusual at all. But to make recommedations, give us a little more to go on - what kinds of wines do you like, what is your price point, etc.
After the expense of Napa, drive an hour and a half and come check out Lodi. We have tasting rooms in our downtown along with 3 breweries (guessing your boyfriend likes beer!?) Napa has used Lodi’s grapes in their wine for decades, come to the source and you’ll find inexpensive tasting fees and some great Spanish varietals that are now grown here. www.visitlodi.com
