Megan and Greg check out Quintessa Wineries’ grape sorting operation. It turns out that only the premier wine grapes make it to the fermentation tanks and ultimately to the Bordeaux red blends known as Quintessa. The bad grapes? Well, they are tossed aside like a “bad egg” in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
Freaking hilarious! Megan stumbles upon a set of Wine Finger Puppets at Darioush’s gift shop. Now, Darioush may be known for its awesome Shiraz blends, but now you have a whole new reason to visit… the gift shop and Wine Finger Puppets.
Megan visits the world famous, Brix restaurant just of Highway 29 in Napa Valley. Brix is known for its amazing cuisine and excellent wine selection, but did you know that it also grows its own veggies right in its backyard?
Check out Brix’s garden and green house with Guillermo Rodriguez, Brix’s property manager. Besides being a fantastic restaurant, Brix has a wine meaning. Do you know what it is?
