Sarah's Vineyard - Wine project

March 02, 2014  •  1 Comment

Hi all , 

I have started researching my top 50 favorite, boutique wineries in California. My first winery to highlight as one of my favorites is Sarah's Vinyards. http://www.sarahsvineyard.com/

They have a  lovely tasting room that is warm and inviting . Of course when I visited it was 78 degrees outside so that helped. ( Gotta love winter in the Bay area ) They have a nice seating area outside  (with heaters for when the weather isn't as nice )and plenty of grass area for a picnic as well.

 

Anyhoo - I Spoke with Steve Howard (his business card says "Captain" He is the GM and has been for about three years.)  He was very nice and answered all of my " non wine expert " questions. He gave me some tips on other wineries to visit .  Solis  winery located across the street on Hecker Pass  and also Jason Stephens winery on Watsonville Rd  . He is friends with both .  I visited the grounds of both but did not have a  chance to taste their wines. However I plan on going back in the near future. ( More photos to come) 

 

Sarah's Vineyard is very proud of their newest award winning  Zinfandel .  It was  voted "Double Gold" for 2014 at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition . .  In the wine world this is huge.  Double Gold means that a panel of 5 judges unanimously voted them the best overall hands down . 

The 2014 SFCWC judging includes  5,825 entries from over 1,500 wineries from over 25 states in America- the largest competition of wines in America Pasted from <http://winejudging.com/>

 

I tried the Chardonnay ( my favorite) which also won a gold  as  well as the Pinot Noir ( Silver medal ) . Both were very good .  I bought 2 bottles.  ….I think I am going to like this project :)

Love, love, love this project! If you need someone to hold the camera, lights, wine, etc. I'm your girl! Did I say I just love this project! Your photography captures the mood, pulls us into your subject, and takes us places we have never been. Looking forward to following you on this journey...
