CADE may look like a fortress at first, but behind those thick walls is a wine collection we wouldn't mind being stuck with. Designed by architect Juan Carlos Fernandez, the winery is an angular structure that looks out onto sweeping vineyard vistas below. You'll mostly be trying carbernet sauvignon here, organically farmed and crafted at a high elevation in the Modern Howell Mountain style. Tastings give visitors insight into CADE's most recent releases, but if you want to explore the winery more, sign up for a cave tour—you'll get a glimpse into the workings of a top-notch winery, plus tastings and small bites.
How to visit: CADE is open seven days a week from 10am to 4pm. A four-wine flight tasting lasts one hour and costs $40; no food is served. Tastings are by appointment only.
In short: Breathtaking architecture, beautiful views, eco-friendly
