Ok so I love writing reviews on YELP.com but I always end up saving them until i have WAY too many to write. Well I am in the midst of one of those times.... and while I did crank out about 10 on friday I still have a good 15 or so to share with you... so i thought I would share a few here.
Here is the link if you want to check out more also: douglasblake.yelp.com here are todays.
I recently took a trip to NAPA and had two very different experiences at Gamble and at Cakebread. Enjoy.
Gamble Family Vineyard
5 out of 5 stars :
As mentioned previously this is by appointment only, not because they are stuffy, or snobby simply because they have room for 2 groups at a time only. Quaint I believe is the word. There is nothing more peaceful than going to Gamble with your picnic lunch. Enjoying some lovely white wine and watching the wind blow the vines in the background. Its wonderful. If this was not the best experience i have had at a Vineyard it has to be in the top 3. The wine, and that is what it's all about right, the wine is fantastic. Just simply fantastic. I joined the red only wine club only to hold me over until I can go back.

What a bunch of SNOBS. You are not better than everyone and just because there is someone semi famous in our group it does not mean you can ignore the rest of us. What a joke. Every step of the way we were encountered with rudeness, from trying to set up the appointment, to letting them know that traffic was making us late, to the actual appointment. Some people need to get over themselves and their name is Cakebread. Oh as far as the wine goes, there are plenty and I mean PLENTY of places you can go to where you wont encounter such obtuse service.
