- For $29, you get a wine-tasting session for two and a bottle of wine (a $59 value).

Handcrafted from property-grown grapes, Agua Dulce Winery's award-winning varieties of vinos cascade over palates, delighting discerning tongues with rich reds and light whites. Groups of two or four tasters can swirl, sniff, and aerate up to 5 wines from a list of 10, including multiple American Wine Society award-winners. Savor the subtle hints of strawberry in the 2005 Aneas Reserve rose of syrah, or subject taste buds to a more muscular, tannin-rich 2003 Aneas Reserve merlot or the 2002 Angeles Crest sangiovese. After the 30- to 60-minute tasting, customers receive a bottle or two of Agua Dulce's 2002 Aneas Reserve syrah, which should fit into most hollowed-out encyclopedias.
Agua Dulce Winery
Agua Dulce Winery unfurls its trellised vines and winemaking facilities across 90 acres of the Sierra Pelona Valley, effectively extending wine country a few hundred miles south. The grapes rely on the region's cool evening breezes and alluvial soils to maintain the earthy, peppery flavors and restrained acidity that characterize the region's wines. Medium- and high-toasted barrels from France, Hungary, and the United States each lend their own influence to the freshly fermented creations, aging the juice and subtly tweaking the flavorful interplay of rich fruit and restrained spice.
