Inner Sanctum Cellars

Inner Sanctum Cellars

We absolutely love small wineries! The connection between the winemaker and the wine lover is at its most intimate. Every vintage is a new adventure and a fresh glimpse into the evolution of the winery. We returned to Inner Sanctum Cellars for a third year to see where their journey had taken them.

What’s New at Gianelli Vineyards

What’s New at Gianelli Vineyards

The quaint town of Jamestown, California, features antique shops, prospecting equipment stores, and of course, wine tasting rooms. While we enjoy browsing antiques and the prospecting equipment is intriguing, but nothing excites us quite like exploring the tasting rooms!

Vino Noceto Winery

Vino Noceto Winery

Quick, name the winery that aspires to be the “California’s Sangiovese Specialist.” Hint: this winery is in the Shenandoah Valley and features an enormous dog’s head in the lawn. Did you guess Vino Nocento?

Turley Wine Cellars

Turley Wine Cellars

Pluck a classic winery from a Napa picturebook and place it in the Shenandoah Valley and you would end up with something that looks a lot like Turley Wine Cellars. It is not a coincidence in this case. Turley Wine Cellars has its roots deep in Napa.

Driven Cellars

Driven Cellars

Not all wineries in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County are actually in the valley. Perched atop a ridge with a commanding view of said valley, plus some amazing car-casses (you’ll understand in a bit) to inspect, Driven Cellars excites on many levels.

Bray Vineyards

Bray Vineyards

Luckily for all of us wine drinkers, they are thriving in the winemaking world, so we can all enjoy the delicious fruits of their labors!

Wilderotter Vineyard

Wilderotter Vineyard

Hello? Hello? Can you hear me now? Or, in this case, can you taste me now? In a triumph of transition, success in the highly technical communications field was transformed into success in the highly creative winemaking field. Our visit to Amador County kicked off with a visit to the success story that is Wilderotter Vineyard.

Gianelli Vineyards

Gianelli Vineyards

Gianelli Vineyards in Jamestown, California, is an island for Italy in the heart of gold country. The grape varietals are Italian, the wines have strong Italian influences, you would not be surprised to hear Italian spoken in the tasting room! Our visit proved that the GPS can be ignored. Trust your palate, this is the […]

Charles R Vineyards in Livermore
FOURTH FRIDAY HIKE & TASTING WITH BRUCE
May 27 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Experience the whole of Livermore Valley from a totally different perspective, the top of the hill at Charles R. The view from the top never disappoints – no matter the weather, the temperature, the steepness or the wind factor – this special place is simply beautiful.

Dick and Bonnie have been generous enough to share this little-known part of the property with us, and we are excited to share the space with those willing to make the trek. Mileage: 1 mile (round trip), Elevation: 300ft, Difficulty: Intermediate

Join Bruce each 4th Friday for a morning hike up the hill. We will share a taste of wine at the top to quench our thirst, then finish up with a full flight once we’re back to the garden patio.

Reservation Only, Limited Space:
$15 Club Members, $30 Public
