Best wineries for sparkling whites, zinfandels, etc.

I'll be in Napa in August, and we will take a tour while there. However, I know, from prior tastings I've gone on locally, in my home town, Chicago, I am a white wine, Riesling, Moscato and Zinfandel girl. Any reccomendation for specific wineries I can visit on my own?

The Napa Vintner's Winery Finder site is very helpful in searching for wineries by varietal:

napavintners.com/wineries/all_wineries.asp

Note: Just because a winery produces a certain varietal does not necessarily mean that it is part of their current tasting flight (particularly true of dessert wines like Moscato). I suggest calling to ask what wines are in their current flight.

I find it worth mentioning that the wineries in Lake County (~90 min drive from Napa Valley) have gotten a lot of acclaim in recent years for their Rieslings. Not sure if that might be compelling enough for you to possibly make a day-trip up there.

If you mean Red Zinfandel then Outpost is excellent. However based on the other wines you mentioned do you mean white zinfandel?
