Wine Stops and information
Terrace Garden: It’s A Family Affair
Chardonnay, A+D, Scotto Cellars, North Coast, California
Complex citrus fruit flavors and aromas with a slight hint of oak highlight this crisp, clean release. The vineyard was hand harvested and the fruit was fermented using a Chardonnay yeast to enhance the bright fruit character. The light straw color hints at the fresh, appealing flavor profile and delicate oak accents.
Pinot Noir, A+D, Scotto Cellars, North Coast, California
Hand harvested and moved through an 82° fermentation using a Burgundy yeast to enhance the bright fruit character. The cool fog and bay breezes created a moderate vineyard climate resulting in a multi-layered, fruit driven wine with age softened tannins and a pleasant balance of fruit and oak. Aged 18 months in new and neutral French and American oak barrels. 94% Pinot Noir, 6% Syrah
Food Pairing: Braised Mushrooms
Outdoor Kitchen: An Italian Wine Adventure

Chianti, DaVinci, Tuscany, Italy
DaVinci Chianti is a well-balanced wine of medium weight with jammy flavors of ripe plums, cherries and red fruit. It has a deep crimson color and is a lively wine with a soft mineral finish and round tannins that linger in long, peppery finish.
