During 30- to 45-minute tours, guides lead groups around the winery, offering various samples of wines created on the premises along the way. Sommeliers crank up the tasting with the third and fourth options. Before the wine samplings, guides teach guests to identify five basic wine aromas, including cut grass, minerals, oak, and citrus, as well as basic tastes of wine, such as bitter, astringent, acidic, and sweet. From there, guests learn the process that surrounds wine tasting.
Wise Villa Winery
Grapes hang heavy from the vines on trellises scattered across 20 acres of the rolling Lincoln Hills. The fruit, tended by Wise Villa Winery's oenophiles, yield awards, including a prestigious honor from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Owner and winemaker Dr. Grover Lee draws on viticulture training while producing single-variety and blended wines or doing the crossword in the Grapes Aficionado Quarterly. Within the winery, the tasting room fills with the sound of clinking glasses as patrons sample various award winners, such as the Pinot Noir Rose. The winery also arranges frequent events, including live music on Fridays, grape-stomping parties, and reservation-only pairing dinners at its bistro.
