Attention Wine, Food and Travel Writers! You’re Invited to a New Winery Tour!
Four wineries in western Yolo County invite you to join them for a day filled with tasting, touring and fun this spring in the little-known vineyards of this fast emerging region.
Simas Family Vineyard, Taber Ranch, Berryessa Gap Vineyards, and Turkovich Family Wines will open their doors Tuesday April 11, 2017, for exclusive tours and tastings on their scenic Yolo County estates. All four wineries are members of Roots to Wine, a marketing combine of eight producers in western Yolo County. The tour also includes lunch at the exquisite Inn at Park Winters.
Berryessa Gap Vineyards and Turkovich Family Wines are close by the charming community of Winters, a rich farming region also known for stone fruit and nut orchards, temperate-to-warm climate, and gently rolling Putah Creek. Simas Family Wines and Taber Ranch are part of the Capay Valley AVA, residing further west in the Capay Valley, which has a long tradition of wine-making dating back to 1860. The vineyards here are on rolling hills with soils containing river rock and volcanic ash. Summers are warm and dry with a long growing season. Portions of the valley receive moderating breezes from the Sacramento Delta and the San Francisco Bay.
Lunch will be served at The Restaurant at Park Winters, nestled in the handsome countryside. Famous for outstanding farm-to-fork dinners, Park Winters grows much of the ingredients they use on their own land, maintaining healthy soil and practicing sustainable farming. The kitchen also sources from the best farmers and artisans in Yolo County, stressing seasonal freshness and exceptional quality. Each dish represents the story of the region, one that is engaging and memorable.
This tour will highlight the distinctive character of this emerging, and exceptional, wine-growing region and its outstanding local cuisine. For more about Roots to Wine, visit www.rootstowine.com.
