Repris winery visit.

Moon Mountain District in Sonoma Califoria


Shannon and I traveled to Sonoma for a Thanksgiving holiday retreat. We made sure to visit Repris Winery well up into the Moon Mountain District in Sonoma. The vineyards are as impecibly cultivated as the wine.

A guide welcomes you with a glass of white wine and walks you around their fermentation tanks and into their cellars. The cellars are buried hundreds of feet into the mountain, to keep the aging wine at a consistent temperature. After touring the producton facilities, you drive out into the vineyards on ATVs and tour the various vines and mountaintops. The ATV excursion is awesome.

After touring the vineyard, you head up to the top floor of the main building and do a comparison tasting of their latest release paired with cheeses. The views in the fall are especially pretty with the colors of the leaves on the vines changing.
