Second stop along the @riverroadwinetrail is at @pessagno_winery to taste through the current lineup.  Got to meet my IG friend @damnmom IRL who manages the tasting room. Tasted the pinot noir Rosé and the pinot noir from the 4 Boys vineyard in Santa Lucia Highlands along with tannat and few red Bordeaux blends from Pedregal Vineyard in Paicines.  Ray Franscioni is the mastermind of the Bordeaux style wine from Pedregal, which is awesome. Another nice spot along the River Road Wine Trail…

In Salinas today for a little wine excursion with the family. First stop along the @riverroadwinetrail is at @odonatawines to visit with Jr. and Denis Hoey. Tasted through the new release Sangiovese Rosé, SLH Escole Vineyard pinot noir and Machado Creek GMS Black Darter. Among some of the soon to be released Santa Cruz Mtns Prolific Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Silvaspoon Vineyard Lodi malbec. 3500 case production for 13 varietals. Always love the grenache and the petite sirah. Definitely…

The Santa Lucia Highlands (SLH) is perched on the western slopes of the Santa Lucia range above the Salinas River Valley. The drive has a discovery around every turn: fresh fruit and vegetable stands, views across the valley to the Pinnacles, the Soledad Mission dating from 1791, and small, family-run #wineries where the host pouring for you is often likely to be the #winemaker.
