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

Probably the best and most evocative view in the Carneros wine district;  the semi-subterranean architecture; green roof, and plenty of water foundations make for one of the most stunning and compelling experiences in this wine country.

Artesa is owned by the Cava producer Codorníu; and specializes in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet Sauvignon; this winery does not produce any sparkling wine.  This is a popular destination and in the warm season can be quite busy.  I prefer and recommend people visit in the Fall and Winter seasons
