Tasting Room: Silenus Vintners Tasting Room – 9.0 – James Melendez

A wonderful tasting room (near Laird Family Estate winery—just north); a very nice tasting room where you might not think there would be one.  This tasting room features very small producers that I have not seen poured anywhere else.   The tasting room is beautiful and it’s adjacency to a vineyard doesn’t make you think it is just a tasting room but you get the full “winery” feel.  Here are the labels poured here:

  • B Cellars
  • Due Vigne di Famiglia
  • Gridley Family Cellars
  • Ideology Cellars
  • Ilsley Vineyards
  • Maple Lane
  • Mario Bazan Cellars
  • Matthiasson Family Vineyards
  • Poem Cellars
  • Ramian Estate
  • Venge Vineyards

A nice place to try other varietals beyond Napa Valley’s familiar Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.  A very friendly and inviting staff.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
