Pam and I knew that there were hundreds of small, family-owned wineries dedicated to producing exceptional wine ... and it was this wine that we wanted to share with our monthly wine club members. Each month we travel California's wine country searching out the wineries, meeting the families and tasting the wines that never make it to local stores or wine shops.

  • Dave, Chardonnay has been the most impressive grape coming out of Santa Barbara (Sta. Rita Hills to be more precise), then Syrah from Santa Ynez. Pinot is somewhere down the list...the only couple I've liked have been from Whitcrafts Aubaine vineyard (unfortunately you need to be a club member to get it), and a wine from the Fiddlestix vineyard,...

  • I go to S. Calif every winter to visit family and drive up to Santa Barbara for a day to visit vineyards. We've now been to quite a few vineyards and among our favorites are Zaca Mesa, Koehler and Bridlewood.  But the stand-out vineyard was Demetria. You need a reservation to visit, but it's worth it. It's at the end of a long winding private ro... Read More
