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

  • 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

  • Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away. It was a cool year as well, forcing winemakers to spend even more time walking the vineyards than usual. Napa Valley is accustomed to dry, warm, sunny growing seasons. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are widely known for ... Read More

  • I’ve been through this so many times before that it becomes rote. The differences between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio. Well, there really aren’t any, when we are referring to the grapes. One is the name in French while the other is the name in Italian. When it comes to the wines though, there remains some distinction, though that is disappearing... Read More
