It’s Summer, and New Tasting Rooms are taking root in Carneros
The Carneros AVA is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in California’s wine country. This, in combination with world class wine production (especially Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sparkling Wine) has made Carneros a premiere wine country destination.

Since you are now fully convinced about the beauty of Carneros, it’s time to pack up and take a trip. What better time to go then now, with seven new tasting rooms opening up by the end of July. These tasting rooms are a welcomed addition to the Carneros tourist industry.
The newest addition is located in Sonoma-Carneros, and will features the wines from Cline Cellars and Jacuzzi Family Vineyards. Both operations are owned by the Cline family, are across the street from each other. Charene Beltramo of Cline said, “It’s a dream come true.”
Many of you know Artesa for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their winery is located in Napa-Carneros, where they also have a tasting facility. Roshambo Winery recently sold their Healdsburg winery to Silver Oak, so much to their fans dismay; they have been without a tasting facility for some time.
Roshambo’s new tasting facility promises to be as unique as their approach to marketing. They are planning to work with local artists to design the concepts of their new tasting room. “We’re looking forward to sharing our unique wine experience with the type of person that is enthusiastic about art,” said Dan Ricciato of Roshambo.
This is an exciting time in wine country. Wine touring and tasting is one of the best ways to explore and find new, interesting wineries and wines. These new tasting rooms will feature a wide array of excellent wines, and will surely provide the atmosphere that Carneros is known for.
