Winery Visit: Groth Vineyards and Winery – 9.0 -James Melendez

Groth is a beautiful winery between Highway 29 and Silverado Trail.  While Highway 29 is busy and Silverado Trail a little less so—the perpendicular roads between each north south roadway are much less busier.  The architecture of the winery is somewhere between California mission style and a something looks like an M.C. Escher drawing.

I have fond memories of Groth—not a large selection of wines but well crafted wines:  Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.  On my first visit I met some great people visiting from the East Coast.  Great thing was that we became instant friends and have remained friends ever since—and those are the things great things that can happen at a winery.   This winery requires a reservations.

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.
