As the Taste of Route 116 was coming to an end for us, we had time for just one more winery. The answer was clear: we needed to visit Jigar Wines.
We were well into our day of tasting along Route 116, savoring wineries new and familiar. Our next stop was one of our favorites: Harvest Moon Winery.
Two of our favorite flavors are chocolate and wine. That made the “Chocolate Truffle and Wine Pairing” event at Las Positas Vineyards the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
The Livermore Valley has a lot to enjoy during the holidays, but snow is not on the list. The way we like to get in the holiday spirit is to participate in the annual Holidays in the Vineyards.
We were enjoying the annual Taste of Route 116 event, which gave us an ideal excuse to visit one of our favorite Russian River tasting rooms: Taft Street Winery.
Being a member of a winery’s wine club has so many benefits that it is difficult to limit our memberships. One annual event that keeps us coming back every year is the Taste of Route 116 that features the wineries in the Russian River wine area. Our first stop was at our “home” winery for the area, Balletto Vineyards.
There are so many paths that take people into opening a winery! One of the most interesting first careers? Being a real-life Top Gun fighter pilot! That’s exactly what drew us to visit Volatus Wines.
When seven generations of a family focus on growing grapes and making wine, wonderful things result. We recently experienced some of those wonderful things when we visited Steinbeck Vineyards and Winery.
Visiting wineries of all sizes can be so enjoyable, but we definitely prefer the experiences found in visiting those small, boutique wineries that produce amazing wines for their devoted fans. In Paso Robles we discovered just such a gem in Mitchella Vineyard and Winery.
It was Day Two of our Paso Robles trip and we were so excited that we were breakfasted, checked out of our hotel, and ready for wine tasting uncharacteristically early. Luckily, many Paso Robles open early, so our day of tasting got off to a great start at Eberle Winery.
