The Fortino Winery has a very cozy tasting room and gift shop. The staff is friendly and greets people with great hospitality. While on the grounds, one could close their eyes and almost imagine that they were in Italy while standing on the gentle slopes of the vineyard. The winery is located in a valley full of beautiful trees and fields. Several fruit farms are located nearby as well. Anyone out for a drive in this area should definitely take the time to stop by to relax and enjoy what I've found to be an excellent assortment of wines. – Description from natejake

  • Ok, I'll admit it, I'm kind of a bone head when it comes to wine.  I buy some nice bottles thinking I'll enjoy them for special occasions and then they never really arrive!  Sure, there are some rare occasions, like a few years ago when I gave away a bottle of '93 Moet White Star to my best friend from High School when he was accepted to the Chi...
