Wine Destination: Schramsberg Vineyards

 As originally seen in the August issue of Galveston Monthly magazine. In this month's issue, I write about Schramsberg Vineyards which sits on Diamond Mountain in the Napa Valley. This historic property has been owned and operated by the Davies family since the 1960s. I met Hugh Davies at a dinner in 2015 at the Meritage Resort so I am sharing the link to that story below but this feature was inspired by a tour of the caves I did this past May when my husband and I took a short trip to Calistoga. Schramsberg was the ideal place to take a bubble break after all the Cabernet Sauvignon.
