Winery Visit: DeLoach Vineyards – 8.8 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

DeLoach was the first winery I visited in the Russian River Valley.  It was a rainy March day and superbly cool and truly a great entre to visit this area as well as this winery.  But since my first visit—I have never been able to get back to that feeling or experience—perhaps I need another rainy day March to make another visit.  If you visit DeLoach other wineries are easy to visit on Olivet Road—which is as close as you can get to that Napa-esque experience (i.e. wineries relatively close together)

This winery specializes in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Zinfandel.

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.
