 Wood & Glory Winery Touring Suggestions

In past years a more structured winery tour was organized for ACBS members attending our event. As popular as that was, there will not be an “official” winery tour this year in favor of smaller groups touring to their time and place needs. Wood & Glory “open time” is your time to relax without a schedule! We encourage you to visit and support the local wineries in the area. There are many to choose from, yet here are a few possibilities for three relaxing itineraries, which we always enjoy with our friends.

Upper Lake: Drive 20 min. North on 29 to Upper Lake to the Lake County Wine Studio where you will meet delightful Susan. She represents many local wineries and has extensive knowledge to share. The historicTallman Hotel is just across the street for lodging and the Blue Wing Saloon is a great lunch spot. “Down Town” Upper Lake is worth a look. Driving back stop in Lakeport at the Don Angel tasting room on Main St. Here you can check out a few local shops.

Kelseyville Area: In Kelseyville you will find several favorites all in close proximity. Steel Wines, Mt Konocti Winery, Rosa Del d’Oro, Fore Family Vinyards, Wildhurst, and Chacewater Winery are all good choices. If you like olive oil Rosa d’Oro and Chacewater both have tasting. The Saw Shop is a good lunch stop and Studabaker’s Deli makes great sandwiches to go or eat there. Steele Winery has tables in the shade for a picnic spot.

Red Hills Region: Heading ten minutes south on 29 out of Kelseyville in the Red Hills region you will find Boatique Winery with picnic tables, bocce, and classic boats! (Ask for your W&G pricing on wine purchases). Laujor Estate is close by with wonderful views and Gregory Graham just off 29 on Pt. Lake View Rd. is a must stop. Just across the road is Shannon Ridge at Vigilance.

For those of you who may wish to visit wineries before picking up your goodie bags with the included map, go to www.lakecountywineries.org for info and a viewable map that can be downloaded to your phone. For additional information contact Gene & Sue Dangel at 925 788 8790 or by email at sgdangel@sbcglobal.net. Enjoy, & see you soon!
