|Subject: Napa Valley|
Well, what my friends told me when we went to Napa is that the main reason why now the tastings are no more free is because of the tourists train running through the valley. The company who made it was having a good business taking people to taste for free! And so they decided to make people pay for tastings. BTW, also in Sonoma tastings aren't free anymore.
