Vindemia’s tagline says, “venture down a road less taken…”, and after enjoying an afternoon at the vineyard, I would say yes, you should!
This charming boutique vineyard could easily be missed, as it is located down a side street off the main drag, Rancho California Road. I loved the location of this vineyard! Since its perched up on a hillside, it offers an outdoor tasting experience with beautiful views of the valley.
THE TASTING EXPERIENCE
At Vindemia the tasting menu is priced at $20 for 5 tastings, and includes complimentary bread and olive oil. The wine pourers are extremely knowledgeable about the wines and can provide great recommendations for food pairings. The estate also sells its own olive oil, but its only available at certain times of the year.
TRY THE FLAGSHIP WINE
Be sure not to miss the estate’s flagship wine, a Zinfandel called MORE COWBELL. The name, inspired by a skit on Saturday Night Live, is popular and synonymous with the winery. Taste if you can, as it has a tendency of selling out if trying to purchase by the bottle. What can I say, good wine speaks for itself. 🙂
Afterwards feel free to mingle in the tasting room, or enjoy your wine with some amazing views in the outdoor seating area.
Since Vindemia grows and harvests their own grapes, venture out to the vineyards to walk through rows and rows of beautiful vines. I got a peek of these cute little Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in the making.
I visited Vindemia Vineyard as a guest, who I cannot thank enough for an amazing and wonderful experience!
