We visited Wise Villa Winery while in Sacramento visiting my (Hoot’s) dad. His wife Mary Ann had this on her list so we drove through some pretty countryside to get there and found a damn beautiful spot right in the middle of the Placer County Wine Trail; the vineyards were budding and the lavender was in full glory!
It looked like they had a new tasting room that was in the process of being built so they were tasting in their winemaking area. While at Wise Villa Winery you can also taste the wines of Cante Ao Vinho, who share the tasting space with Wise Villa. Always kind of convenient when you can sip, or slurp, at two places for the travel of one.
Anyhow…I/ we aren’t going to critique the wines (although several really hit the spot including Wise Villa’s “French Style” Chard, the Wisdom of Wise red blend, & Cante Ao Vinho had quite an interesting list of varietals, check the pictures) but I can say that I would absolutely go back…why? Glad you asked, because it was fun and the people were very cool, and to top the whole experience off, the day was absolutely perfect…that gorgeous California sunshine was out which drags you out from the inner dwellings of your adobe. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with people you dig, in a beautiful place, sipping on delicious and interesting wines???
We know we haven’t talked to you about wine in a while…but don’t you worry, consumption has been occurring and we’ll bring you more info soon. We’ve definitely been on an adventure kick, which is almost as addicting as drinking wine!
