For more than 35 years, the Wisnovsky family of vintners has labored in the fruitful soils of the Applegate Valley to produce a palate-pleasing repertoire of more than a dozen wines. During the reserve tasting, discerning pairs savor the harmonious flavor notes of at least six wines, delving into the complex characters of vinos such as toasty tempranillos, full-flavored clarets, and delicate sauvignon blancs. Continuing in the tradition of local wine pioneer Peter Britt, Valley View’s winemakers cultivate the vineyard’s rich soil, which yields a diverse array of grapes, and watch as their casks’ ambrosial contents develop intricate flavors and learn important life lessons. Wine enthusiasts are welcome to bask in the pastoral bliss of the vineyard’s picnic area, surrounded by undulating hills, tree-covered valleys, and serenading bands of mariachi mountain goats, and today’s deal also includes 15% off the same-day purchase of wines and merchandise.
