The Most in California

Exploring 4 of the State's fantastic wine properties

UC Davis

Okay, so this is a bit of a different tack but I would be remiss if I didn’t include the new, world’s greenest winery at UC Davis. There is no famous winemaker involved here and no famous wine produced, but as the home to California’s preeminent winemaking school, the facilities here will serve to train as well as influence our next generation of winemakers.

Surprisingly to some, the facility is not exclusively devoted to winemaking, including brewing and food processing operations as well, but the entire shebang is LEED Platinum-certified and when completed, will be a self-sufficient operation. We’ve spoken about interior design and architectural design, but this environmental design is destined to be ever more important in the relatively resource-intensive winemaking environment and demands our immediate attention. Kudos to UC Davis for its lead role here.

    Nice article's a shame Dominus doesn't offer tours or tastings.

    I am so much into the wine craze, that I really want to follow my true love of wine, and get into a winery......

    Oh, I could add so much more... how can we host photos here? Maybe there is a way, but I have not been able to do it except for profile. A photo page dedicated to wineries would be nice. I have two amazing ones of chateau montelena, one featured on an SF news channel. Maybe a contributive blog for all on wineries?
