The wines are delicious, the employees are knowledgable and friendly.The view is magnificent perfect for enjoying a few glasses of wine during a sunset. The cellar carved into the mountain reminds me of something out of Lord of the Rings.
We just love it at CaCorks when we connect with another great boutique winery that produces some special wines such as Lovemore Vineyards. Winemaker Russ Langord, along with his wife Sharon founded Lovemore Vineyards in 2014 based on the idea that life, good wine and love are all the best when shared. We just became acquainted with the great Pinot Nori and Sauvignon Blanc that Russ and Sharon produce. These award-winning wines produced by Lovemore Vineyards are delightful and Russ and Sharon donate $2.00 for each bottle to local charities (Pets Lifeline Animal Shelter). Be sure to make an appointment for your next visit to Lovemre Vineyards located in Sonoma .*
Wines were nice and we really LOVED the vibe in this surfer-chic tasting room. It's a dogs-welcome kind of spot where you want to stand around and chat up all the customers who wander in.
Definitely worth a stop when you are in Healdsburg.
This is a real family business and everyone was friendly and helpful, telling you stories about the winery and the wines, they even took our picture behind the bar. The tasting area has tons of room with tables you can sit at, the tasting bar and even an outside tasting area so even though there were other people there you felt like you were getting a private tasting.
Close your eyes and savor the deep flavors…You might swear you are drinking a great French Pomerol. Mojon’s Bench 2004 Estate Merlot combines fine estate grown merlot with a touch of cabernet franc to achieve a wine that’s soft, ripe and complex.
Kathleen has a couple of really nice young guys working the tasting room and it looked like the winery's reputation is growing as they had been busy. This vineyard is in Santa Rosa, and Kathleen is producing some amazing wines. While she has been producing at this organic vineyard for 10 years, this seems to be her break out year, because her work is finally be recognized.
Authentically Californian in spirit, Archipel expresses the greatness of the ancient Mayacamas Mountain soils in a truly contemporary wine style. Bold and assertive with an approachable velvety texture, Archipel delivers vibrant plum and spice flavors enhanced by French and American oak barrel aging. One of the primary winemaking tehniques used is called "cold soak". Instead of fermenting the grapes immediatly after harvest, fruit is placed in stanless steel tanks and held for 5-6 days at a temperature of 44 degrees Fahrenheit. This period of cold soaking allows grape skins to maintain contact with the juice for deep color and flavor extraction.

Great job by the owners creating a feeling of Tuscany! Beautiful place... locals call this a "one stop shopping" tasting experience! Wood fired pizzas, a KILLER gelateria, Italian varietals in the tasting room; a deli with various panini and cheeses,salads, etc...a must stop when touring the Kenwood area!
