A day of wine tasting requires planning, stamina, hydration and lots of food. A recent sparkling wine tour brought us to a great place for a casual picnic lunch: the grounds of V Sattui Winery.
The Press Club, a popular wine bar and lounge in San Francisco, is hosting their sixth annual Harvest Celebration. This wine tasting event will feature over 50 varietals of wine from Caraccioli Cellars, Lacuna Wines, Porter Creek Vineyards, Bedrock Wine Co., Hendry Ranch Wines, Kunin Wines, Paradigm Winery, Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery, Turnbull Wines, and […]
The Napa Valley is home to many outstanding wine varietals and styles, but one of our favorite themes for a day of tasting is to focus on sparkling wines. After years (decades?) of honing our tour list, we have arrived at a nearly perfect day of bubbles. First stop: Domaine Carneros!
Cold comes in many varieties: the cold shoulder, a cold shower, even cold turkey. As a wine lover, have you ever wondered about a special kind of cold: the cold soak?
The world of wine and wine making is full of fun, and not so fun, terms of art. Making wine is admittedly complicated, and deserving of a lot of descriptive terms, but sometimes it can seem overwhelming. For example, what does “sur lie” or “on the lees” mean, really?
Food and wine pairings can improve both parties or create a hot mess. When pairings go well it is a thing of wonder. Unexpected, yet delicious pairings elevate such a pairing to the level of magic. A recent visit to Pondl Winery displayed this magic for pairing after pairing!
Discovering a hidden gem of a winery brings us boundless joy! A recent wine tasting trip to Lodi gave us several opportunities to experience new wineries. One of the most hidden among them turned out to be an amazing experience. We are definitely adding St. Amant Winery to our “can’t miss” list!

In masonry, clinker bricks are made when excessive heat over fires wet clay, producing bricks that are dense, dark, and durable. In Lodi, Klinker Brick Winery produces wines that are dark, durable, and downright delicious!
No winery tour in Lodi is complete without a visit to Harney Lane Winery. This family-owned winery combines so many desirable attributes: great wine, beautiful architecture, fun staff and an extra bonus, convenient picnic tables!
Nothing captures the excitement of wine making quite like harvest time! A year of labor in the vineyards finally comes to fruition, and the focus shifts from the fields to the crushing floor. The Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association harnesses this excitement with a celebration of local wines with their Harvest Wine Celebration. Make your plans now, this landmark event is just around the corner!
