Friday, May 12th – Sunday, May 14th, Featherbed Railroad

What:  For those that missed last year’s Two-Lakes Tour, you missed something special.

Well now’s your chance to jump on board BUT DON’T WAIT!  There are only 9 caboose cars and last year they sold out FAST.  

There’s overflow nearby at the Tallman Hotel (also a great spot; https://tallmanhotel.com/) but no discount.

Please RSVP (president@goldengatehealeys.com) after you’ve reserved your caboose or room.

Just like last year we’re going to have a BBQ pot luck both Friday and Saturday night.  $25 per person for BOTH nights.  Chicken and Tri-Tip will be the entrees and you’ll provide side dishes (‘cuz that’s how a pot luck works).

Saturday, June 10, 2023, Nichelini Family Winery

What: Established in 1890, is proud to be one of the pioneers of Napa Valley’s modern wine industry. In 1884, traveling on horseback, homesteader Anton Nichelini became the first Swiss settler in Napa County’s Chiles Valley. He quickly built a homestead cabin, set about planting vines and olive trees, and started constructing a hand-hewn stone winery which included a Roman wine press. In 1890, Anton reached two milestones: the winery was bonded, and he met another Italian-Swiss immigrant, Caterina and they were married shortly thereafter.  By 1895, he had finished building a seven-bedroom house above the winery.  This provided a home for the growing Nichelini family and their eventual twelve children.

The winery, the restored homestead cabin, the original Roman wine press and the house still stand today and have remained in our family’s hands for more than 130 years, making us the oldest continuously family-owned and operated winery in Napa County. Our motto is “Generation to Generation”, and to date five generations of Nichelinis have passed on their winemaking knowledge as well as their traditions of hard work and careful craftsmanship. We strive to produce truly world-class, finely-crafted American wines that exhibit finesse and individuality.

Saturday, August 5, 2023, Alice’s Restaurant & Santa Cruz Mountains

What: Yes, You can get anything you want … at Alice’s Restaurant.  (You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy dessert and that’s practically the same thing. )

May be an image of food

The building was originally constructed in the early 1900’s as a general store to support the logging industry. A hub of local history, it served the area (then called “Four Corners”) until the 1950’s when it was turned into a restaurant.

Sometime during the 1960’s the restaurant was bought by Alice Taylor who renamed the restaurant after herself and the now famous Arlo Guthrie song of the same name. Already, a world famous stop for motorcyclist, hikers and tourists, Alice’s Restaurant (and the adjacent buildings) was bought in the 1970’s and has been family owned & operated ever since.

Saturday, October 21, 2023, Enkidu Winery

What: The origin or meaning of our name “Enkidu” comes from one of the oldest stories ever recorded: The Epic of Gilgamesh. Written in Sumerian cuneiform nearly 4500 years ago, the story details the life of King Gilgamesh and his best friend Enkidu. Enkidu was a steward of the land and protector of animals, and was created by the gods as a foil to Gilgamesh. Two-thirds deity and one-third human, he embodied strength, passion, and incredible bravery, yet at times showed fear and trepidation of the unknown. Early in his existence, Enkidu was rustic and rough around the edges, and over time he became more cultured and refined. He evolved while staying true to his nature, the same way a grape does as it journeys from the vine, through the vinification process, to a finished wine.

As a winery we take direction from the character of Enkidu, looking inward and adhering to beliefs which guide our efforts. We work closely with growers who farm conscientiously and take pride in treating the land and vines with respect. We strive to make handcrafted wines of outstanding character that are the result of passion, art, and intelligence, combined with hard work and dedication to our craft.
