Jacuzzi Family Vineyards
My weekend trip to Calistoga, included a special treat. We stopped off at the Jacuzzi Family Vineyards to stretch our legs for a moment. Inside we found a welcoming staff, helpful, knowledgeable, plus free wine tasting to the left as you walk in, and in addition to the wine, The Olive Press, offers free olive oil tasting, that's located on the right, as you walk into Jazucci Family Vineyards.
We found two excellent reds, the Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Primitivo Morine Ranch Lake County 2006. Both of these wines tasted so smooth, rich and full of flavor, even the texture of the wine was wonderful, the moment it touched your lips, you knew that you were in for a treat.
The olive oils, there were so many to choose from, it was delightful! The lemon, and the lime infused oils ended up being the choices for us. In addition to the olive oils, there are also various vinegars to compliment the olive oils.(*Special note, The Olive Press has a very clean, and orderly set-up, and the staff is right there to assist you with any questions. *I've been put off at other olive oil tastings, because of unclean conditions. You won't find that here.)
Jacuzzi Family Vineyards is a must see, when you're driving through Sonoma, California, along highway 121, not far from highway 37. VB
