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

This Pelligrini not to be confused with Long Island’s North Fork Pellegrini Vineyards.  I seem to always visit during barrel weekend.  But I need to find a time to visit when it isn’t barrel tasting weekend in early for that quiet less rush tasting experience.  I love that the tasting bar is in the barrel room.  The scent of oak barrels and tasting is an awesome experience.  They pour Chardonnay,  Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carginan and Zinfandel.  I love the experience of being in this rustic and less traveled wine country road in the Russian River Valley.

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.
