CA Wine Country Stop #2 – Trentadue Winery

After leaving Bella Winery + Wine Caves, we headed over to the next stop on my friend’s winery list – Trentadue Winery . This was a winery my friend had never been to, but heard good things about. We lucked out that my friend happened to have a winery map complete with winery addresses, along with a GPS system so we could enter the addresses and get directions. I think I need a GPS, too! It was so cool!

We greeted at the main gate by a simple sign with some pretty orange flowers.

We passed the gate and drove down a red-leaved-tree-lined road towards the winery.

The wine tasting area was very fru-fru-looking from the outside.

I loved the fountain outside…especially the lions!

This winery had more counter space for us, so we grabbed a nice corner spot. Trentadue Winery offered free wine tastings from the left side of the menu – any choice of (about) 8 wines! Free wine tastings are always nice. See the etched wine glasses again?

My friend got the port tasting…

I got the regular wine tasting flight.

The glasses were totally different sizes! My friend’s glass was so cute and mini! I sampled a couple wines off the free list and all the ones on my tasting flight. I even got a couple sips of my friend’s port tastings. The wine tastings were all delicious. Additionally, I really liked the staff at Trentadue. They were very personable and energetic.

Yay for wine tastings with good friends!

The ladies next to us had the cutest doggie! This is (I believe) a Mi-Ki. I hear it’s a new breed? I’ve certainly never heard of it before.

They even showed us some of their dog’s tricks like how she could stand.

So cute!

After our entertainment, we wrapped up our wine-tasting and discussed wine-purchase-options.

I got 2 bottles! I purchased 2 reds:

I couldn’t decide between these 2 bottles of wine (both from the free list, surprisingly enough), and since they were reasonably priced, I figured it was ok to get both (especially since I had some spending money budgeted for the trip and wasn’t just charging up a storm). I can’t wait to enjoy them now that I’m home!
Anywho, after Trentadue Winery, we were off to Healdsburg, CA to get a snack, then more vino!
