Tasting Room Hours: Weekends: 11am-4pm
Nebbiolo, Amador County 2012 – Accolades: 2017 Gold Medal, SF Chronicle. This medium-bodied Nebbiolo offers aromas of sweet plum, cranberry, licorice, cigar, dried rose and graham cracker with a dusty minerality and nice acidity on the palate. Domenico's Nebbiolo will tame the richest and heartiest of stews, such as osso buco or chicken cacciatore, or pair with linguine with shaved black truffles and parmigiano. Nebbiolo is Italy’s most noble red grape from Piedmonte.
Primitivo, Amador County 2011 – Accolades: 2016 Silver Medal, Toast of the Coast; 2016 Bronze Medal, SF International Wine Competition. Full-bodied, deeply colored, rich and concentrated, sometimes called the Mother of Zinfandel, the Primitivo is grown in Amador County. This wine has a deep, rich array of blueberries and blackberries. Underneath are complex layers of hibiscus flower, white pepper, sweet cigar box and crème brûlée, with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Well-balanced with firm acids and tannins, this wine pairs perfectly with rich and spicy dishes, lasagna, grilled lamb or beef and strong cheeses.
Super Tuscan Style, Amador County 2012 – Accolades: 2017 Silver Medal, SF Chronicle; 2016 Bronze Medal, International Women's Wine; 2016 Gold Medal, TasteTV. Thr opulent Super Tuscan Style wine has aromas of plum, fig and snickerdoodle with accents of white pepper, red currant and cloves. Expect firm tannins and a lush, lengthy finish. An antipasto platter with meats and rich, hard cheeses will stand up to the flavors of this medium- to full-bodied wine, as well as stuffed portabella mushrooms heavy with herbs, braised beef or veal and, of course, osso buco.
