Durant and Booth: Historic Oakville Tasting Room

Durant and Booth: Historic Oakville Tasting Room

Durant and Booth opened their doors in May 2016. With a selection of interesting varietals {Malbec, Pinot Noir, Bordeaux Blend, Field Blend of Whites including Greco Di Tufo, Ribolla galla and Roussane…to name a few) and close proximity to famous Oakville Grocery, Opus One and Robert Mondavi Wineries, they are sure to not be missed. If you happened to be a Silverado Trail fan, make your way down Oakville Crossroad and grab some delicious lunch (remember I said close proximity to Oakville Grocery, I meant on the same piece of land about five feet away!!) while enjoying a Wine Tasting at D&B.

On my visit to D&B we were treated to a delicious casual picnic lunch prepared by Oakville Grocery {Chicken Strips, Potato Salad and Kale Salad = DELICIOUS} and their Dapper Reserve Tasting, which allowed us to taste all that they had to offer, including their Reserve Bordeaux Blend, which was stunning. I must say their whites are some of my absolute favorites in the valley, they make three different white wines: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and their Blanc White Field Blend…. hard to choose which one I like best to be honest. If you follow my blog, you are well aware of my love of white wines and I LOVE any place that has three whites to offer…it’s a rarity in this Cabernet focused valley! Durant and Booth only produces a few thousand cases of wine and each varietal is a very limited production, only available to purchase directly through the winery either by phone or paying them a visit!

I must mention in addition to having darling décor, wonderful wines and delicious food, they offer some of the best hospitality you can find – anywhere! Amanda Murphy (formely Director of Hospitality at Odette Estate Winery) is running the show with a small highly talented staff of Napa Valley veterans. If you want to be treated like a true VIP and experience a wonderful new space, go to Durant and Booth…you’re welcome in advance ;)
