I’ve made numerous trips to the wine country – remember it’s my favorite weekend getaway, and over the years I’ve had the good fortune to visit lots of wineries.
Big brand names, very small or trendy brands, large production, small production, guided tours, no tours and it’s all fun. But now when I go wine tasting, I have one primary objective – to seek out something unique.
This place qualifies - the tasting experience itself is unique. You will not be rushed in and out of a crowded tasting room but rather invited to lounge by the reflection pool and converse with the very knowledgeable, yet low-key staff – all afternoon if you’d like.
They farm all of the grapes for their Bordeaux varietals organically, provide a great guided tour through the vineyards and they dare to produce an excellent Pinot Noir in Zinfandel country.
You might also like to try this one if you like Cabernet Sauvignon. I don't normally - like Cabs that is, but I like this one so much I'll be pouring it for Christmas dinner.
