Pinot Gris / Grigio
Mosby winery is committed to producing award-winning Cal-Italian wines. Bill and Jeri Mosby purchased the old de la Vega land in the early 1970s, and the first thing Bill did was plant vines. The Mosby’s first commercial wines were bottled under the Vega label, named after the old Spanish California land grant. Bill’s wine began to gain industry attention, and a following of Mosby wine enthusiasts continued to develop. In 1986, at his family’s insistence, Bill changed the Vega label to reflect the Mosby name and winemaking philosophy.
They specialize in Italian varietals!
But they have a number of non-Italian varietals too.
And was really surprised at how much I enjoyed their White Cabernet. Yup... you heard right... WHITE CAB. It's light and refreshing.... fruity but not sweet.... on the dry side. It's a lovely rose to sit by the pool and relax with.
I really like the atmosphere of their tasting room. It is very small and intimate and you are often the only people in there. We had very generous pours for the tasting and I think we tasted 7 or 8 wines. I preferred the reds as always and lkiked their the zin. They sell a lot of fresh juices here too which is nice.
Robert Renzoni Vineyards & Winery
If you haven't checked out this winery yet you are missing out. Sure this place doesn't have large gardens or a picturesque picnic area... but this place is amazing where it counts... the wine.
I came here on a wine tour and was lucky to meet Robert Renzoni himself. He was super friendly and passionate about his wine. He also educated our entire group about his wine which seemed to be really appreciated by the group because most of our tour were first timers.
The tasting room is a large warehouse type building, nothing fancy. However, almost everythingI tasted here was delicious. The service was great because they had plenty people pouring and we did not have to wait long to get more tastes. As far as the wine, I highly recommend the Sangiovese, the Old Vine Zin, and the port.
Located 25 miles north of downtown San Diego, nestled inside the quaint town of Rancho Bernardo, lies one of the best-kept secrets in the county…
The Bernardo Winery 121 years old, and still fully functional as a producing winery, Bernardo has lessened in size and grown in character. ‘Strewn’ with Unique Village Shops including a coffee shop and salon, and boasting an award winning cafe, Bernardo Winery has turned into more of a destination than ever.
he Lucchesi family origins lie in Provincia Di Lucca, Toscana, and we are the direct descendents from the civilizations of the Etruscans, the native culture of northwestern/central Italy, and first civilization of Italy and the Romans.I remember their Barbera from last fall being excellent, but when I went in last they only offered the "general, grow everywhere" wines, such as Merlot, Carbernet and Syrah. In my opinion the more exotic grapes do better in Nevada County and have a more unique taste.
MacMurray Ranch was outstanding. We took a scenic drive through the valley to reach MacMurray Ranch. We had a wonderful time at this secluded and intimate ranch. We learned the history of the location along with MacMurray's and photos from the past. We tasted wines and toured the place in equal segments of time so we didn't get overwhelmed with different wines all at once. Our tour was strictly wine tasting only.
Cynthia is the owner and winemaker at Passaggio Wines. Cynthia's focus is small lot boutique wines that include unoaked chardonnay, pinot grigio, rose altogether about 10 varieties of wine. Cynthia went from cop to artisan wine crafter, not a typical journey by any stretch. In 2004, Cynthia left a 15-year Law Enforcement career to pursue that passion and family tradition of winemaking. It has been enjoyable to watch Passaggio Wines grow and see Cynthia follow her dreams. Passaggio's tasting room is gorgeous for either tasting, having wine by the glass, or for a special event. The tasting room staff and winemaker are very friendly and accommodating and make you feel right at home. The location in Sonoma Square's Vine Alley makes it an ideal wine tasting destination. Passaggio's welcomes California Corks members too.~

he rich history of California agriculture and winemaking is evident everywhere. The winery, especially the historic structures on the property, represents a snapshot of time and place, and evokes a strong feeling of connection to the past. The high integrity level of the structures and surrounding vineyards encapsulates visitors into a time and place that was so very different from present day. Boeger Winery has a complimentary and reserve wine tasting daily from 10 am to 5 pm. Boeger Winery is only 45 minutes east of Sacramento.
