Chesebro Wines

I love this tasting room. There is lots of space in the place and art to amuse you in between the tasting. The wines are fantastic and even though they are not widely advertised, they are a good buy.

The service is great and they enjoy spending time talking to you about the wine. Definitely check this place out if you are in Carmel Valley. I really enjoyed the red blend from Arroyo Seco.

Old County Cellars

Large bunch of purple wine grapes

Old County Cellars is a great little urban winery own and operated by a group of friends that just happened to love wines and emersed themselves in winemaking back in 2010. One day enjoying their luscious Carmeros Pinot Noir they decided; "Let's do this" and Old County Cellars was born. After two years of leasing space from another local winery, Old County Cellars opened their own tasting room in San Carlos California. Fun people and fun wines. We look forward to doing a video review of a few of their wines in the future but you can get a little peek from this breif video of the visit we made during the 3rd Annual Mid Peninsula Wine Walk by just clicking HERE. Be sure to tell Dan, Jim, Jeff and Toni a big hello from California Corks when you stop by and enjoy a few of their great wines.~

Tedeschi Family Winery

Tedeschi Family Winery is a great boutique winery to visit and tour. Tedeschi produces approx. 2,000 cases each year. At the time of adding the winery to our California Winery Directory we learned from Stephanie Trotter- Zacaria the Directory or Sales and Marketing that Tedeschi Family Winery took some recent medals for their wines. Congradulations to Emil Tedeschi, vintner & the winery owner, to Emilio Tedeschi the Winery's General Manager and not for forget Mario Tedeschi winemaker.  We will be updating the winery in the future and getting a better picture assigned to the listing soon *

Rancho Ventavo Cellars

Rancho Ventavo Cellars - In early 2005 Faye decided that her husband George Filpatrick I needed another job as his time wasn’t being completely used all 24 hours of the day – between his full time day job and working our 40 acre avocado & lemon ranch. So, during and shortly after a trip to the Russian River area the couple made the decision to turn their passion for wine making into a commercial endeavor. The agreement was George would make the wines and Faye would sell it. Since the couple had always called their ranch "Rancho Ventavo", an avocado and lemon ranch located on Ventavo Drive,  it only seemed fitting to call the winery "Rancho Ventavo Cellars". While the winery is not open to the public you can taste the wines that the Filpatrick's produce in their tasting room in Oxnard, CA. *

Our family established Miramont Estate Vineyards. Nestled in the Sierra foothills, our vineyard and boutique winery are located in the Lodi appellation in California. Our Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes thrive in the Mediterranean climate where they are bathed in golden sunlight, caressed nightly by cool Pacific breezes, and then harvested under starlight to protect their luscious flavor at its peak.
