After 14 years making wine at two world class wineries (Mount Eden Vineyards and The Ojai Vineyard) I started up Vino V Wines in 2004 focusing on the goal of making distinctive wines from grapes grown in the cooler growing regions of Santa Barbara County.Small winery (<1000 cases) located in Ventura making distinctive wines from the cooler regions of Santa Barbara County. – Description from Dragac

  • Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year.  With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year.  And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win...

  • It has become clear that wine drinkers are demanding varietal wines beyond the strongholds we've seen on shelves and menus for decades. Let's face it; there was a palate gap in the United States' most commonly consumed varietals. That gap has been bridged by Garnacha.

  • Though I've mentioned Jonata on and off several times this decade, don't think I've ever seen a single other person post about it in the Forum. Would be curious how others here react to any in their range, and this one in particular. I haven't had it yet, but view it as worthy of purchase.  One of the most fascinatingly complex and powerful wine... Read More

  • Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More
