Some of the local wineries I have enjoyed visiting:
Napa Valley – Fantastic Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Malbec (blend). It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Napa Valley. The following are the few wineries that I remember liking for their wines: Franciscan, Merryvale, Turnbull, V.Sattui, Cakebread, Robert Mondavi and Beaulieu and Beringer.
Santa Clara County – Fabulous Cabernet, Sauvignon, Chardonnay and almond champagnes! Try the following wineries Rapazzini (ask for the “baby maker”, Morgan Hill Cellars, J.Lohr (full bodied Cabernet, yum!), Clos LaChance, Fortino (say hi to my friend Bertha), and Guglielmo.

Cook, sip, unwind, enjoy!
