Jacuzzi Family Vineyards

acuzzi is a unique place for sure. Yes, there are a lot of wineries that combine both vino and olive oil, but I think Jacuzzi "owns it" as good as anyone. They've got a huge facility with a very generous, separate area devoted completely to the olive oil, so you've really got two completely different tasting experiences in one stop. Both the wine and the olive oil tastings are free; another pleasant surprise since even Sonoma county is running low on the complimentary tastings.

Pavi Wines

Pavi Wines - you can drink (not visit) - have some wonderful Italian varieties...almost the only people in Napa who do.

You'll find their wines on a lot of restaurant lists...it's great quality at good prices.

I especially love the Pinot Grigio ... way better than the average "nothing there" pinot grigio, very refreshing on a hot afternoon. They sell it by the glass at Calistoga Inn - I'd say it's best on the deck there!

You can also find it in St. Helena at Tra Vigne, Farmstead; in Calistoga at Brannan's; and in Rutherford at Rutherford Grill.
You can also enjoy a glass at: Napa Wine Company Tasting Room

Eckert Estate Winery

Michael and Vickie Eckert opened the Tasting room December 2001, as one of Livermore Valley’s newest wineries. Michael takes his craft from vineyard to bottle by producing an eclectic array of hand-crafted wines from Italian, Portuguese, and French varietals – many that you don’t customarily find in a tasting room. Thisfamily owned and operated winery produces 2,500 cases annually. Here in the casual setting at Eckert Estate Winery, you can relax and taste exceptional wines, sample freshly made mustards and truffles, talk directly with the winemaker, or just admire the new murals depicting the good life.

Naughty Boy Vineyards

Naughty Boy Vineyards is a small organic Pinot Noir Vineyard. Planted in 1996 by the owners and farmed organically by Jim Scott.

The Pinot Noir is made in the Burgundian style. Naughty Boy Vineyards buys only new French oak and barrel ferment for 18 months to 2 years before bottling and then wait a year to release it. Naughty Boy Vineyards offers two labels, our original label has our pet boxer "Little Ricky" who was a faithful vineyard dog and helped with planting and frost protection

Domenico Wines

Domenico wines on a barrel

Dominick and Gloria Chirichillo’s choice of name for their winery is a reflection of their commitment to their Italian heritage and the tradition of family winemaking. In 1955 in New York, Dominick who is called Domenico in Italian was introduced to these traditions by his Nonno (grandfather), Domenico Giovinazzo. In the basement of their home was a wine press that Nonno showed Dominick; passing down from one generation to another the love of handcrafting wine. Affordable, delicious Santa Cruz Mountain wines, great tasting room, wonderful owners/winemakers. It has been inspiring in seeing Domenico Wines expand and grow. Kudos, and wishing the team the very best on their latest wines and their new tasting room location in San Carlos. Domenico Wines was included in a brief video presentation of wineries that are part of the 3rd Annual Mid Peninsula Summer Wine Trail. You can get a peek HERE We are looking forward to getting an interview (video) with Dominick Chirichillo in the near future.~

Wild Hog Vineyard

Wild Hog Vineyard is at the headwaters of Wild Hog Creek (from which the winery derives its name) 45 minutes west of the small town of Cazadero. At 1400 feet elevation and 5 miles from the Ocean east of Fort Ross, the vineyard avoids most of the summer fog. The climate of the coastal range, in conjunction with our farming practices, helps to produce intense flavorful grapes.far off the beaten path, which, in my opinion, makes the place all the more special. There is no way anyone could find this place on his/her own. (You have to meander for miles on a narrow dirt road.) If you are one of the few people fortunate enough to do an actual tasting at this small, informal winery, you likely will meet the proprietor, Daniel Schoenfeld, a warm, kind-hearted gentleman, who obviously is passionate about wine-making. (He, quite appropriately, self-describes his line of work as a "labor of love.")

Du Vigne

"Winemaking is the perfect match of nature and art. The winemakers' task is to take what nature offers in the vineyard and help to guide what the vine has to offer in the form of wine." - Ken Musso, Winemaker

Palmina Wines

Palmina is more than a winery. It is a philosophy, a passion and a strongly held belief that wine is an extension of the plate, a component of a meal and a means to bring people together. Formed by winemaker Steve Clifton in 1995, Palmina is named in honor of Steve’s great friend Paula. Like a grandmother to him, she taught Steve to love cooking, wine and the Italian lifestyle and was a spark in his life. After Paula succumbed to breast cancer, Steve found that her given name on her Italian birth certificate was Palmina, and the winery was thus fittingly named.
