As “sheltering in place” drags on, we like to think of happier times. Those memories include numerous visits to family-owned Omega Road Winery. So it only made sense to spend some time (electronically) with one of the owner/winemakers Alexandra Henkelman!
With the declaration of “Shelter at Home” keeping us all away from wineries and tasting rooms, we thought that the next best thing would be an interview with a local winemaker. So pour yourself a glass of Enoteca Five wine and join us as we get to know Michael Chalkley, owner and winemaker at Enoteca Five.
What a day! It was time to sip and learn, or learn and sip actually, as we toured and tasted at the amazing Schramsberg Vineyards.
As the vineyards start to show bits of green along their vines, our yearning for new winetasting experiences grows. What new wines are being poured in the tasting room? What have we missed? That was our motivation for our recent visit to the Omega Road Winery.
Springtime comes early to the Livermore Valley. Around Valentine’s Day the vines wake up and send their first tentative new shoots out into the sunlight. On just such a sunny day, we visited a Livermore landmark: Page Mill Winery.
Exploring new wineries never gets old! On this crisp spring day, we had the pleasure of discovering a hidden gem in Livermore: Enoteca Five.
After a lovely Valentine’s Day celebrating our love, we had the weekend to celebrate our other passion: wine! We chose to explore a new winery (for us) in Livermore, Rosa Fierro Cellars.
Valentine’s Day in wine country offers so many opportunities to show your sweetie how much you care. This year we celebrated the day with the Mello Cielo bus tour at Ruby Hill Vineyards!
While sipping on your favorite wine have you ever considered all of the work and expense that went into getting that wine into your glass? Here is a quick look at your wine’s journey:
The day had arrived! This year’s Uncorked: SF was upon us, so the waiting was over. It was a sunny, beautiful after a week of dreary, so we happily traveled to Fort Mason for a very special wine event!
