In a bit of a pickle. I don’t want to blog about this winery.
I want to keep it all to myself!!!! My new little treasure. I want to hoard it and lock it away and say in a scary Disney Villain voice… ‘MINE, all MINE! Mwwwwahahahahahaha’
But I taught kindergarten. Uggggghhhh. The pip-squeak voices of my kinder cuties haunts me… ‘Sharing is caring.’
Plus, I really like you guys. So here you go. You’re welcome.????
@32windswine 32 Winds Wine A recommendation from Kistler.
When Kistler recommends you go. Tucked, oh so quietly, down a long dirt road, off of Dry Creek Road.
Blink and you’ll miss it. A little Healdsburg hideaway.
Appointment only. I mean look at these pictures.
The ambiance and aesthetic is me. So me! Me in winery form. Fresh sunflowers, a yellow Parisian bicyclette, a little babbling creek view, a tasting room with turquoise doors flung open in joy, succulents, lavender.
A group of the most vibrant, classy, sweet, fashionable, fun-loving ladies managing the tasting room…they have impeccable decor sense.
Tasting perks include lush gardens, towering walnut trees, bocce court and picnic area.
A boutique, family owned winery, that Ed Mascarin founded in 2008.
Ed’s Italian immigrant grandfather planted 40 acres of vineyards in central California where Ed was raised.
Ed’s family did not particularly want him to go the farming and ag route.
After a successful career as an engineer Ed returned to his roots and passion for winemaking.
He purchased 8 acres of vineyard in Sonoma County which also includes a guest romantic suite and tasting room.
A 2,500 case a year winery.
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Rose, Sauvignon Blanc
Matt Taylor is the winemaker.
Mia, Ed’s daughter, is a partner, who wears many hats.
Sherry Harkins is partner, general manager and heart of the tasting room experience.
Sherry welcomes you in like part of the family.
Several AVA’s are represented in their wine line-up:
West Sonoma Coast, Dry Creek Valley, Napa Valley and Russian River Valley
32 Winds wines are served in luxury restaurants and resorts.
Above the charming tasting room is the 32 Winds guest suite.
They were just the cutest.
They spent their engagement night in the guest suite.
How romanic is that?!?!?!?!?
32 Winds is named for the number of winds measured by the main points on a navigation compass.
Explorers used this compass to seek the finest flavors and experiences the world had to offer!
It also pays homage to Ed’s engineering background.
