2017 Zinfandel Experience • A tasting with familiar winery

Corison Winery • St. Helena, Napa Valley

October 20th, 2016 | No Comments

In September of this year I headed to Napa to meet a few new wineries. My visit took me to the busy “HWY” side of Napa Valley as opposed to the (Silverado) “Trail” side. The HWY side is generally busier and more crowded and I don’t like crowds nor busy when tasting. However, I have […]

Ridge Vineyards • Healdsburg, Sonoma

July 17th, 2016 | No Comments

It was a wonderful, not too balmy, summer afternoon, when I finally made it back to Ridge Vineyards. I first visited Ridge while attending the ZAP Simply Summer Celebration in 2014.  The event was held in their beautiful vineyard so I never got a chance to visit their tasting room nor taste any of their […]

Acquiesce Vineyards • Lodi, CA

Acquiesce Vineyards • Lodi, CA In my wine adventures, I strive to visit as many new wineries as possible. I think I’ve become a bit compulsive. However, I must admit that I have come to appreciate revisiting wineries more and more. (Never thought I would admit that.) On return visits, you see, hear and feel […]

Red Lily Vineyards • Southern, OR Oregon has become an absolute wine destination. Willamette Valley has led this charge with a consistent track record for pumping our great Pinots. However, just North of the California border, in the shadow of Mount Shasta, lie the towns of Ashland and Medford. These two small towns are surrounded […]

Markham Vineyards • St. Helena, CA There are so many wineries to choose from in Napa that you could spend a month exploring and not exhaust the bounties of experiences waiting to be discovered. Markham Vineyards is one of those, “let’s pull in here” wineries that you leaved pleased as punch that you did. In […]

Putah Creek Winery

April 14th, 2015 | No Comments

Putah Creek Winery Davis, California is a small college town just west of Sacramento on the way to San Francisco. University of California, Davis is one of the lesser known of California’s big universities. That is unless you are in the wine biz and fully understand the scope of their Viticulture program. For those of you that don’t, […]

Helwig Winery

Helwig Winery • (Sierra Foothills) Amador, CA Like so many of my adventures, Helwig was discovered on sheer dumb luck. My wife and I were invited to a great charity event for the Triumph Cancer Foundation called Triumph Uncorked. It’s a fantastic summer event at Helwig Winery full of fun people, good music and of course great wine. […]

Borjón Winery  • Plymouth, CA The Shenandoah Valley AVA is an adorable little wine region in the Sierra Foothills of California about 40 miles east of Sacramento. It is scenic and the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon or even a weekend sightseeing and drinking wine. Borjón Winery is a perfect example of the small, adorable family […]
