Fodor's Expert Review Villa Vallecito Vineyards Tasting Room

Murphys Winery/Brewery/Distillery
Winery CEO Ghee Sanchez-Hagedorn's first vineyard memories involve playing amid the Sonoma County grapevines that her migrant-farmer parents tended. After successful Silicon Valley careers, she and her husband began growing Calaveras grapes, later establishing Villa Vallecito, whose Syrah-Grenache Payaso blend often scores high in statewide competitions. The Barbera Reserve and Grenache are two other stars, with Chardonnay and Viognier among the whites. The downtown tasting room's Mexican style honors Sanchez-Hagedorn's heritage. Call or check the website about visiting the winery.
