Sierra Ridge Vineyards

We intended on just tasting a few wines but to our surprise we were being served by the owner John, he kept opening up wines for us to try. Before we knew it we were sitting out side at one of the tables with full glasses and talking about his passion for making wines.

It was such a beautiful day he offered to take us on a tour of the vineyards, as we walked the estate we discussed the grapes, soil, vines and the care taken to produce these delightful wines.

Woffard Acres Vineyard

This was homiest and friendliest of the 3 wineries we visited. The view off the hill cannot be beat. It is gorgeous. It was neat to see the vines with fruit hanging off of them. Some of it had been picked and was waiting for pick-up, which happened quite often as the owner whizzed by on his ATV. We could see people in the back taking the grapes he had just delivered and running them through a press.

la Belle Winery

La Belle Winery is a bonded winery located along the foothills of Terra Bella. We are a boutique wine making facility built in the middle of an orange grove. We offer handcrafted quality product for the enjoyment of people who appreciate full bodied wines.

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.~

Tres Hermanas Winery

This is a great little winery along the Foxen Canyon trail. If you want a winery where the owners pour and you can actually talk about winemaking and the whole experience you get it here. Tres Hermanas does not make super jammy Central Coast wines but rather produces numerous wines in a more European style...lower in alcohol, higher in acid and basically more food friendly. I will have to say I enjoy 90% of what they produce.

Their Tres Hermanas Cuvee is incredible as is there Nebbiolo, Refosco, Syrah/Sangiovese blend and Muscat Cannelli.

Harrington Wine

As of October 2009, Harrington has released all of the 2007 single vineyard designated Pinot Noirs. The 2007 Brosseau Vineyard Pinot, from the Chalone appellation of Monterey, is the third vintage made entirely from a little-known clone, the Colmar 538. The limestone soils of Chalone are providing a welcoming home to this new clone, as is evident in this wine's focus and intensity.

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.

Karmere Vineyards & Winery

Karmere is a good gateway winery. It has the light, fruity champagnes almond, raspberry and regular. They offer a wide range of Zinfandels and other reds here too. The wines are named after the females members of the family. Could the the place for a wedding or special occasion, beautifully designed for events. Spent quite awhile there, tasting at the counter and barrel-tasting as well.
