Hope & Grace Wines

We popped into this beautiful tasting room. The lady behind the counter was very informative and sweet, and understood that we were in a bit of a time crunch so she poured our wines quickly while still giving us explanations of the grapes that were used to produce each wine. I thought the wines here were very different because they were blends of grapes grown in different regions. We had the general tasting ($15/person) and particularly enjoyed the pinot noir and the syrah.

Bodegas Del Sur

Bodega del Sur is the culmination of a dream of Evelyn and Victor Reyes-Umana. Victor began his love affair with wine in his native El Salvador. Moving to California and later in life, traveling around the world, solidified his appreciation for wines and increased his curiosity for the various wine styles of the different regions of the world.While visiting some friends in Chile in 1993, Victor and Evelyn had the great opportunity to visit many of the small, family owned wineries, and it was then that Victor uttered the fateful words, "This is what I would like to do when I retire".

Belle Marie Winery

Niebaum-Coppola Winery

This place is outstanding. The wine tasting area, the lobby, bathrooms, restaurant, gift shop, employees. Helps when you have a member with you. Food is tasteful & the wines are always perfect for pairing with whatever you decide to eat at the restaurant. It was very warm the afternoon we went, our first stop was wine tasting, second was the restaurant. Absolutely fantastic winery!!! And it's more than just a winery. There's a pool, bocce courts, shopping, and restaurants. Truly it's like a resort that happens to have wine. Lots of memorabilia too including the Oscars that FF Coppola won for The Godfather. Gorgeous place and excellent wines too! Highly recommended!

Steltzner Vineyards

In February 2012 Steltzner Vineyards sold the winery building, production facility and 49 acres to Plump Jack Management Group. They will reopen the property as Odette Estate. Steltzner Vineyards retained 30 acres in the Stags Leap District and will continue to make wine.

Currently Steltzner Vineyards is closed to the public and are not offering any tastings or tours. With advanced notice customers will be able to pickup wine orders from their new offices in Yountville. Steltzner will be planning some special events featuring our wines at their Estate in Stags Leap District. You can join their mailing list to be kept in the loop for these exclusive events.

J. Rickards Vineyard & Winery

When we drove up we were greeted by 2 dogs and Jim the owner. The place is quaint and wine is phenomenal. Jim the owner took his time and explained the wine making process to our group, he even had us taste one of the grapes on the hillside. One of my favorite wines was the wine blend called "Sisters" which is made from the traditional Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petite Verdot and Malbec, all estate grown

Amphora Wines

The Dry Creek wineries produce a wider variety of wines and styles of wines than the traditional PN and Zin crowd along the Russian River. The Amphor tasting room location is in the same parking lot as 10 other wineries tasting rooms - right off Dry Creek Road. Stop at this location and you will be able to taste wines from Amphora, Collier Falls, Dashe, Forth, Philip Staley, Peterson, Lago di Merlo, Kokomo, Mietz and Papapietro.

Chateau Julien Wine Estate

What an awesome winery!

We came here yesterday to do some wine tasting. It was pretty late in the day so I think we were the last ones there? We were the only ones there while we were tasting...

Anyway, the guys who did the tasting for us were pretty awesome. I loved that they gave us a little background on each of the wines before we sampled. I LOVED the port that they gave us. It was just a very laid back tasting, but with some really good quality wines.
