Red wine gets its color because of the types of grapes used and the wine is made using the grape skins. There is a debate in the wine enthusiast community as to whether or not wine should be decanted/aerated (letting it breathe), or it should be consumed out of the bottle. Either way your recipients’ drink their wine, it should be enjoyed. To enjoy your wine chilled without it becoming watered down by ice cubes, try playing your wine glass in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before you pour your wine. Freezing grapes is also a creative (and delicious!) way of chilling your wine!

Barrels are hand-stirred for the maximal flavors – which lead to a rich, creamy texture – every two weeks. Toasted Head Chardonnay should be enjoyed with braised meats, Cajun cream sauces, or

There are over 1,200 wineries in the state which range from mass producers in Modesto like Gallo to smaller wineries like Bella Vineyard & Wine Caves in Healdsburg. Founded in 1857, the Buena Vista Winery was the first commercial winery in the area. To date, over 100 different varieties of grapes are grown all over the state.
