Wilhelm Family Vineyards

Karyl Wilhelm rolls up her children's pant legs and washes their feet. She hoists them into a vat filled with freshly picked syrah grapes, which they stomp to their hearts' content as the fruit squelches delightfully between their toes. It's 2007 and Karyl is producing her very first batch of wine. She gets lucky and it comes out perfectly, bursting with a nuanced and flavorful bouquet. Karyl ages the concoction in barrels, but neglects to fill them completely. The excess air turns the wine into vinegar—albeit vinegar bursting with a nuanced and flavorful bouquet. Since then, Karyl has completed U.C. Davis's renowned Winemaker’s Certificate Program and steered clear of such novice mistakes. Spread out on 20 acres of fertile land—with traits comparable to Rioja in Spain, France's Rhone region, and Saturn's seventh ring—Wilhelm Family Vineyards yields an assortment of grapes that produce wines such as the tempranillo-based Kevin's Choice, an award-winning blend named after Karyl's pilot husband. Each bottle of wine leaves the grounds with a stamp of approval in the form of Karyl's signature, which is written directly on the bottle in eye-catching metallic ink.

Guests who enter the tasting room enjoy a warm welcome from a 95-pound weimaraner named Chancellor, who muses over the earthy notes of his rawhide bone while patrons sample the winery's selection of red, white, semisweet, dessert, and seasonal wines. As veterans of the first Gulf War, Karyl and Kevin celebrate each Veterans Day by hosting a Patriot Salute Festival, whose proceeds go to support the Wounded Warrior Project.


Though Wilhelm Family Vineyards sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

I had a wonderful time! The wines were really good and the owner spent time telling us about the different wines and made it a very welcoming experience. It made for a very pleasant afternoon adventure.
