The world of wine is filled with extraordinary characters and astonishing talents. Although there are probably hundreds more names that could easily go on our list of recommendations these are wineries we’ve personally visited with people who have touched our hearts. In addition, if you scroll to the bottom you’ll find  our other useful wine links. These include some of our favorite resources. These  recommendations include websites we personally use for reliable and factual wine information. We are only recommending people and places we personally enjoy and appreciate. We know you will, too!
