Our first stop was the Tobin James winery, way out at the end (or the beginning if you are coming west along 46) of the row of tasting rooms along the highway. Tobin James is well known for their wide variety of wines, especially their very sweet tasting Dessert Zinfandel. The tasting room itself is fun, set up to resemble an old style saloon and manned with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Another winery we stopped at which was worth noting was EOS. Setup to resemble a Mediterranean estate, this award winning winery had some awesome Chardonnays, Moscatos and Zinfandels. Especially cool were the collection of race cars and the self-guided tour of the wine production facility out back.
Another wine trip, another 12 bottles to add to my growing collection…
