Tasting Room: Silenus Vintners Tasting Room – 9.0 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

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 have two blogs on this descriptor page--I use to be able to make separate. My fragrance blog is to express my thoughts on fragrance. A passion in addition to wine. I think it is a stellar component to the senses and that which I am in love with. I hope you like both blogs. My "wine" blog also incorporates those categories intimately involved - wine, food, travel and lifestyle. We all need food and water to survive but we need wine to nourish our soul. My favourite varietals are Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Grenache, Syrah-Shiraz.. for my red wines. And I often circle back to these varieties and sometimes they are my home varieties. The journey of wine is an historical footnote also marked by viti-viniculture and artistry that makes this beverage a living one. I have worked professionally in the wine trade and have loved all aspects; marketing, history, science and art of wine. © 2014 James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy— All Rights Reserved – for my original Content, logo, brand name, rating, rating graphic and award and designs of James the Wine Guy.
