Napa Valley’s Spring Mountain is a must visit when you are in wine country. The winding mountain roads alone are an adventure and the fruit is nothing less than exceptional. Keenan Winery might be a slight challenge to find on those roads but worth the search. We met with Reilly Keenan at the tasting room and had a great time learning more about this small producer that makes wine with a huge flavor.
