After a great tour and tasting at Champagne Taittinger, we decided to tour one more high-profile champagne house. Without hesitation, we made our way to Champagne Pommery.
Eagle Ridge Vineyard has built a reputation for producing fine wines for more than ten years. In addition to fine Zinfandels, Petite Sirahs, Cabernet Sauvignons, and even a few blends, there is also a respectable library of Ports. We recently stopped in for a taste of their latest Port release.

Galante Vineyards was the first tasting room in Carmel. But then, Carmel only exists because the winery’s owner Jack Galante’s great grandfather, J.F. Devendorf, founded it. We recently visited the tasting room and discovered that there was more to like than just a long history!

Wine tasting is a fun combination of experiences: sights, sounds, aromas, flavors, even the sense of touch comes into play. When a tasting room gets the vibe just right, everything about the experience rises to the next level. Caraccioli Cellars is a great example of combining all the best elements of wine tasting into a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts!
Downtown Forestville, near Santa Rosa in California, is a hidden jewel for people like us who are always searching for wineries to explore. Not to press the metaphor too far, but one winery not to be missed is actually called Joseph Jewell!
