Don’t mind me. Just hopped in my private jet and skedaddled over to Catalonia, Spain today. Twirling through vineyards like a Spanish señorita. ???? Just Kidding!!! Although, looking through these pics, you probably wondered…
Marimar Winery is designed in the traditional Catalan farmhouse style. ????
The next best thing to Spain resides in our very own Sonoma County Backyard. Marimar Estate Vineyards & Winery @marimarestate
Red shoes were essential for this wine tasting outing.
As was my dress with a super twirly skirt. I partook in the Tapas and Wine Pairing.
Usually my wine tasting experiences consist of a lot of French and Italian influence.
It was refreshing to get a totally different cultural wine experience. Delectable tapas included:
Prawns in garlic sauce, cabbage dumplings with pork chorizo, figs stuffed with chocolate and nuts in a chocolate sauce. Pinot and Chardonnay complimented these small plates. As I devoured my tapas, I skimmed two of Marimar’s cookbooks. Paella recipes caught my attention!
Owner Marimar Torres is a powerhouse woman.
Here are some more important Marimar tasting pieces of info:
Located in the rolling hills Sebastopol.
Only 6 miles from the ocean.
Specializing in limited production Chardonnay and Pinot
Marimar also wanted to bring Spanish Varietals to Sonoma County so she started with Albariño and Tempranillo.
Did you know that Tempranillo is the highest quality red variety grown in Spain?
Marimar’s Club Members get exclusive access to the Tempranillo!
Estate grown and estate bottled wine coming from a 20 acre vineyard.
I particularly wanted to visit this winery because it is DIFFERENT.
Different from the usual French, Italian, and trendsetting wineries.
At Marimar you are instantly transported to Spain and a Catalan-style farmhouse winery surrounded by vineyards.
All the furniture and decor in the tasting room will enchant you.
Most pieces are antiques and collectibles coming from Catalonia.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE:
This is a by appointment only winery.
I highly recommend reserving a Tapas & Wine Pairing.
