If you haven’t been to Rust Wine Co, you must go. They have a lovely tasting room, excellent staff, and a terrific spot outside to sit and enjoy a little BBQ (although the BBQ closes for the winter so check with them if you are going in off-peak season).
Oh, and the wine is damn good too, top to bottom.
They also have two Syrahs and three Merlots, all from different vineyards, and all are so different. We didn’t taste them on this trip but have in previous visits, and it’s an exciting opportunity to really understand the difference that terroir can make in a wine.
Next up: One more winery to go, and it’s a little family winery that should be on everyone’s radar: Vin Amité!
