Ambiance

  • Like stepping into a wine country painting.

  • You’ll see what I’m talking about as you scroll through the pics below.

  • From every angle the scenery is quintessential wine-country-picturesque.

  • Cheerful cottage flowers line the path as you walk to the tasting room.

  • Emerald green Dry Creek Valley views off in the distance.

  • Around every corner, reality is skewed.

  • Is this fake?

  • Am I inside a Sonoma County painting come to life?

  • Inside the tasting room I like to sit near the rustic fireplace in a stately wingback chair.

  • Pour me a glass of Zin, light me a pipe, and put a curled up bloodhound at my feet.

  • Then there is the tasting room bar.

  • Long with plenty of room for many wine lovers to stand and taste.

  • I enjoy options when I taste wine.

  • I can chat inside with the tasting room staff…

  • Or

  • I can wander outside on the beautiful grounds while I sip.

  • The next time I visit I’m bringing a picnic.

  • Today, when I went to taste, several little birds swooped around me.

  • As cozy, quaint and charming as a winery can be.

Wine Pick

  • Too hard to pick just one.

  • Last night, I met up with two of my best friends since FIRST GRADE.

  • We had a little reunion dinner.

  • It was essential to bring a special bottle for this special occasion.

  • Dutcher Crossing 2016 Brothers’ Reserve Zinfandel.

  • OUTSTANDING!!!!!

  • I really wanted to bring a wine that showcased Dry Creek Valley and Sonoma County.

  • Mission accomplished.

  • We drank every last drop and my friends were impressed.

Dog Approved

  • A very enthusiastic YES!

  • Move over Hollywood’s ‘Marley & Me’…

  • The story of ‘Dutchess The Wine Dog’ is Hollywood’s next blockbuster.

  • Yellow Lab, Dutchess, came all the way from TAIWAN!

  • A dual language pup 😉

  • Dutchess is official winery greeter.

  • You can spot her in the 2018 Wine Dogs USA Calendar.

  • If you’ve followed me on my Insta, you know I have a labrador too.

  • My little Lexi is a Chocolate Lab.
