Tasting Experience


My dad and I went for a wine tasting and tried 5 wines: Chardonnay, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dessert wine, and a blend. The Chardonnay was light and refreshing with peachy flavors. The Malbec was an interesting wine because it smelled like wood and tasted like sweet licorish. The Cabernet was a very robust flavorful wine that will make you feel fancy and that your splurging. The blend tasted like berries and smelled like flowers. The dessert wine was very similar to famous “oporto wines” with a candied raisin flavor (but you have to call them dessert wines because of geographical trademark/copyright laws).


I decided to visit the winery because i had commented on an instagram picture that the winery posted and they responded. Also, I think they had contacted me some time last year to visit but i had already returned home. I kept my promise.


I heard there’s delicious pizza….


Not gluten free, sadly. But there is also delicious handmade salami, appetizers like salads, fruits, olives and bread that make a great complement to the wine and salami.


Available at the restaurant called  Cucina di Rosa open from 11am-4pm.


Walk Around


If you want a tour book ahead of time but you can also walk around and explore. You’ll see the special events house right outside near where the pizza over is located. There is a second floor that a special exhibit about the history of the winery.


You can lounge  and keep enjoying wines that are not included in the tasting and order wines to take or ship back home.


Pictures!
