L'uvaggion Di Giacomo

Uvaggio is the result of two guys who represent a triple threat: too much experience, a low threshold for boredom and a desire to do something unique, which is why this team makes wines in California with grape varieties indigenous to Italy. In the past L'uvaggion Di Giacomo have made Arneis, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, even a Vin Santo. Their current portfolio includes Barbera, Moscato, Primitivo and Vermentino. Our theory is simple: if California has a climate perfect for growing Mediterranean varietals, why not take advantage of it?

Chateau Rodin

In 1978 Chateau Rodin was cleared of trees and various undergrowth. Three years later in the spring of 1981, the first Chardonnay and Zinfandel vines were planted. Since then, additional vines consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Barbera.
The winery sits at 2600 feet above sea level which provides a Mediterranean climate. This makes Chateau Rodin wines unique because at this elevation we are provided with cool summer nights and warm summer days.

Morovino

Morovino celebrates the Italian winemaking style by crafting smooth, easy-to-drink vintages that match perfectly with your favorite foods.  From a classic Pinot Grigio to an unusual rich, velvety Dolcetto.

Gold Hill Vineyard

Gold Hill Vineyard was founded in 1980 by Hank Battjes.

Hank worked for 27 years as an electrical engineer at GTE. During those years, Hank increased his knowledge of home wine making, applying it to his hobby and passion. Pursuing his dream he searched for suitable land and when a friend, Bruce, suggested 5 acres of vineyard on an 80 acre parcel near Coloma, California, he bought it.

Norman Vineyards

Norman Vineyards was established in 1971 when Art and Lei Norman realized their dream of growing grapes and making wine. Art, a true pioneer, was spurred on by the memories of his father and grandfather making wine in the family home. They spent weekends scouting for the perfect site before settling on their Adelaida site in Paso Robles. Art and Lei fine-tuned their viticultural skills over they years supplying highly sought after grapes to several wineries.

Shenandoah Vineyards

Leon and Shirley founded Shenandoah Vineyard in 1977. They were one of the first four wineries in Amador County's now well known Shenandoah Valley appellation. From the first offering of 1,200 cases, the winery has continued to thrive, adjusting the portfolio of wines over the years. It is now producing about 25,000 cases per year.

Dante Robere Vineyards

In 2012, two families decided to officially start a winery. Wanting to own a vineyard and build a winery facility from the ground up, they purchased a 6-acre Syrah vineyard and adjoining lot on Wetmore Road in South Livermore. Their winery, Dante Robere Vineyards is named after Dan and Bob. They currently make and pour their wine on Tesla Road in east Livermore while they await completion of construction of their new facility on Wetmore Road scheduled to open in 2015.

Their goal is to make wine from Livermore Valley grapes when possible but also to procure quality grapes from other wine growing regions that are well suited to certain unique varietals. Their estate-grown Syrah, blended wines featuring the estate Syrah, and other Rhone varietals such as Grenache and Mourvedre are their signature wines. But they also produce the stalwart varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Chardonnay, as well as more unique wines such as Tempranillo, Touriga and Barbera.

Ticket Cellars

A San Francisco based winery making unique artisan wines from some of the best vineyards across California, including: Front Row Zinfandel, Golden Ticket Viognier, Suite Three Syrah, Standing Ovation Sangiovese and Invtiation Only Pinot Noir. A Cabernet Sauvignon and another release of Front Row Zinfandel are coming soon.

B. R. Cohn Winery

When we visited they had a vintage car display as well as lots of vendors selling their goods and offering food samples. The tasting room is quite large, and while there were lots of groups there, we did not have to wait too long for the tasting. They also have a separate olive oil and balsamic tasting room.

B.R. Cohn is a large winery with retail distribution and they make wines using grapes not only from their local estate, but mostly from all over wine country.
