David Caffaro Winery

David Coffaro has a unique perspective on winemaking that has earned the respect of his peers. He definitely does things his way. Like the use of screw cap bottles.

Kunde Estate

Day One, Winery #7: It was getting a bit late in the day by the time we made it to Kunde Estate Winery. (We found out that Kunde rhymes with Sunday.  Who knew?) The grounds of this winery are very picturesque (which explains why there were so many pictures that I took there). I am […]

Kenwood

Day One, Winery #5:  By the time we hit Kenwood, our main focus was on lunch, not wine.  We called ahead to find out if they had food that could be purchased at the winery, and we were told that they had some sausage and crackers.  This worked for us, and so we left Ravenswood […]
