Contributed by Meriha Eby – My favorite wine tasting experience was at Domaine Carneros. It was for my 23rd birthday. The reason I chose this place was because my favorite wine is sparkling wine and that is what they specialize in. Also I love the location and how beautiful the scenery is.
I had my closest friends and family and my boyfriend come and it was perfect. We sat on the outside terrace so we could see all the gorgeous vineyards surrounding us. My favorite sparkling wine from there was the Blanc De Noir. They usually sell out of this product and have limited stock of it but because they are one of my employers clients we were able to get a bottle.
We also got a “Sparkling Cheese plate” which had some goats milk gouda that went really well with the wines we were tasting. It had other cheeses that were delicious as well but I forget what kind they were. The gouda was my favorite. Our server was wonderful, she was highly knowledgeable about the wine and the history of Domaine Carneros and it was very entertaining listening to what she had to say.
