Wood Family Vineyards is a family run winery located in the eastern foothills of Livermore Valley. Specializing in limited production handcrafted wines, Michael, Rhonda, Harrison and Parker all have a hand in the winemaking process - along with many friends and family. Michael assumes all duties during harvest and Rhonda has taken on the role of winemaker. Rhonda started making wine in 1996 - after they purchased the Merlot vineyard where she and Michael built their home. Together, their passion for wine and belief that winemaking begins in the vineyard led them to Livermore Valley. They are tireless champions about the quality of Livermore Valley soils and their commitment to Valley grown grapes. The winery is open for tasting by appointment. – Description from dvoristanac

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • Dessert wines are often saved for the winter holidays when we tend to linger at the table with our family and friends, but summer brings its own set of celebrations that are perfect for opening a bottle of something sweet. As the days lengthen and temperatures rise, it's a perfect time to head outdoors for a picnic, barbeque or dinner party on t... Read More

  • Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... Read More

It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Seeds of generosity can go a long way. This past week Adelaide's The Advertiser featured the story of Paul Clark, a winemaker whose harvest was lost when bushfires charred his vineyards only to have students from nearby Birdwood High School donate their crop of sauvignon blanc grapes. “Winemaker Paul Clark remains a glass half full kind of guy, ...

  • The status of South African wine in the USA is lamentable. Even in New York City, where the most diverse selection of wine styles and origins in the world spoils imbibers, South Africa barely appears on the radar screen. The US has no heritage links to the Cape, and much of what has come ashore here in the 20 years since the end of apartheid has...

  • I began my wine journey mining for hidden gems in little known regions along the east coast of the United States. A common response to many of the wines I shared and wrote about back then went something like this; “What, they make wine there?” In fact, wine is produced in all 50 states, but many people can count on one hand the wines they have t...

  • Bordeaux gets a bad rap for several reasons. the top wines are ridiculously expensive. They also require significant time in the cellar to really show their stuff, and the style of these wines has changed over the years, becoming bolder, riper, and to many palates both less fresh and less complex. That’s the problem with expensive Bordeaux, but ... Read More
