Wine Road Fam Tour: Martinelli & Old World Wineries
Here we go off on our afternoon adventures continued from Fam Tour Part One….We leave Healdsburg and take the quick 20 minute drive south down Highway 101 to Fulton exit, then right on River Road to Martinelli Winery.
My group of concierges bustles into the warm TR, greeted by bubbly Debbie and hosted by Linda, knowledgeable, considerate and fun. Cheeses and crackers pair nicely with the full tasting, ending on a sweet note.
Next stop: Old World Winery.
Just a hop-skip-and-a-jump back on River Road east is Old World Winery, one of the newer winery members along Wine Road.
A rare varietal, Abouriou, is featured today- I have never tasted anything like it! Earthy, blueberries, gamay-ish: – tres francais!
Watch for our next Wine Road Concierge Fam tour coming soon, 1.19.12!
Here’s looking at you, kids.
