Fodor's Expert Review Lavender Ridge

Murphys Winery/Brewery/Distillery
A stone building dating to 1859 houses this boutique winery's tasting room, which also sells artisanal cheeses and lavender products. Lavender Ridge's longtime owner-winemaker uses traditional French methods to craft wines from organically farmed Rhône grapes. The lineup includes single-varietal Viognier, Roussane, and Grenache Blanc whites (also Rolle, aka Vermentino) and Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre reds, single varietal and in a blend. Cheeses accompany all tastings, a nice touch.
