von Strasser sold their estate up at Diamond Mountain and relocated their tasting room to the Silverado Trail (the old Lava Vine site) You're greeted at the door by Huckleberry, a 3 year old (at this posting) Chocolate Lab.

I do miss the Chocolate Bars that were sold at the Diamond Mountain site. 🤤
This is a fantastic winery. The reds were amazing. I especially loved the Napa Zin. Chris and Jesse were helping us and they were both very knowledgeable and very friendly. We sat at the bar for over an hour and chatted with the both of them. Highly recommend visiting here.
