Seeking a Good Bottle of Wine in Gold Country
Our winery recommendations for a Good Bottle of Wine in the Madera (California Gold Country)….we’ve written about the linked wineries. This region tends to have higher a alcohol levels in their wine.
Chatom Vineyards – Check out their Sangiovese and Cuvee
Vino Noceto – It was a bad day for them, we hope to have a better experience there sometime.
Amador Cellars – Good Zinfandel
Twisted Oak Winery – Another place for good Carignane
Bella Piazza – Good Zin
Ironstone – Beautiful place to visit for a picnic, eat lunch there, very large grounds, but the wines didn’t sing for us.
Hatcher Winery – Check out their Barberra
Newsome – Harlow – Good Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah & check out their blend called The Deviant (Carignane, Zin, Petite Sirah)
Irish Vineyards – Not much of a tasting room, but very good wine. One of the few places that had control of their alcohol levels and they were blending Viogne into their red blends.
