SeaGlass Wine

We were excited to find SeaGlass wine when we visited Monterey, California.  The area is perfect for growing Riesling grapes.  If you are lucky, you will find sea glass on the local beaches to match the beautiful blue wine bottle!  More info is at:  http://www.seaglasswines.com/Our-Wines/Riesling/

Eberle Winery in Paso Robles, California (east of Big Sur) is one of the highest award-winning wineries in the United States.  Eberle means “wild boar” in German.  A bronze boar greets visitors at the entrance to the Tasting Room.  It is considered good luck to rub the boar’s shiny nose!  Grapes are picked by hand in the Fall and placed into giant hoppers for crushing.  The juice is then pumped into fermentation vats, before transfer to barrels for storage.  Aging time varies from months to years.   Finally the wine is tested and filtered before bottling for sale. Eberle’s vineyards and caves are very scenic!
