Long Shadow Ranch (10:00 am)
Our first winery on the list. Long Shadow Ranch is filled with history and charm of the “Old West.” Stables and horses surround the vineyard. Tastings here will run at $15 per person (while tasting, ask to try the “pink panty dropper” or “boxer dropper”). Check out the Groupon deal of 2 tastings for $11 per person with a $10 discount for purchase of bottles of wine https://www.groupon.com/deals/longshadow-ranch-vineyard-and-winery-1
Thornton (11:30 am)
The second winery on our list. Thornton winery combines old world style with new world taste to create award-winning and premium varietal wines. The tastings here will range from $5 to $7, unless you want to try the premium wines, which will run you $18.
Maurice Car’rie (1:00 pm)
Another great winery, but also famous for their bread. A tasting will cost you $15, but I highly recommend getting a bottle of your favorite kind of wine to share with friends, for this will be our lunch spot as we enjoy their picnic area (separate from the tasting room) and feast on cheese, meat, and crackers (provided by YMF). Now about their bread, they bake world renowned sourdough bread filled with brie cheese. One loaf will feed 4-6 people. It's cheesy and garlicky with a butter flavor...a fan favorite, you will not be disappointed!!! (Not provided by YMF) One load will cost about $17, so please plan ahead to share with friends. This is our lunch plans, if you have any questions, please let us know ahead of time.
Wilson Creek (2:45 pm)
Our last winery on the list. Home of the famous Almond Sparkling Wine, the winery has garnered numerous prestigious international wine awards and Gerry is proud that Wilson Creek is unofficially the official winery of many Navy ships, including eight aircraft carriers. The tastings here will cost $20, and you keep the wine glass as souvenir.
