Mineral Wines Impresses Again

Mineral Wines Impresses Again

It was a roasting-hot Fathers’ Day in Murphys and we had just completed a fun tasting at Gossamer Cellars. Our enthusiasm for wine tasting was still quite high, but our appetite for walking great distances in the triple-digit temperatures was low. Great news: one of our favorite tasting rooms was mere feet away. Mineral Wines, it was meant to be!

Gossamer Cellars Keeps It Cool

Gossamer Cellars Keeps It Cool

Summer in Murphys is not for the faint of heart. Some days bring a new meaning to the chestnut, “It’s a dry heat.” With the temperature passing 100 degrees before lunch, we knew that we needed to be very focused with our wine tour. With only a few hours before it would be too hot even for wine tasting, we went to some favorites, like Gossamer Cellars.

The road into Murphys is lined with wineries, each trying to distract visitors from their quest for the tasting rooms of downtown Murphys. One winery that should not be passed is Ayrael Vieux. Don’t worry, Murphys will still be there when you’re done!

Discovering new wineries is a thrill, but revisiting familiar favorites is equally fun. Every visit reveals new wine, new sights and new winery happenings. We recently had the chance to check in at Mineral Wines just before the excitement of harvest.
