Winery 1: Domain Chandon
Bryan got a bottle of their bubbly for our anniversary last week, and I was excited to try more of what they have to offer.
Winery 2: Hanzell Vineyards
|This is the oldest producing (59 years old) vine in California. They make a very special wine with these grapes.|
|It was amazing how dry the land actually is compared to the very lush and productive grape vines.|
|Hanzell's processing and fermenting area. They will begin to harvest next week!|
|One of their store rooms.|
|Ben took us into their lab to let us taste some of the fresh grape juice from this morning. He said based on all the numbers and what type of grape they were, they were 10 days away from harvesting.|
|Their property was really breathtaking.|
|And our private tasting at the end of the tour!|
Now we are going to sit and be still for a few minutes before we head back out to the Sonoma Farmer's Market and then dinner at The Girl and The Fig!!
