Old Sugar Mill - Wines of Yolo County
Clarksburg Travel Blog› entry 12 of 14 › view all entries
The Old Sugar Mill is just that, and old sugar mill, that has been converted into a wine lover's heaven! At present there five wineries operating out of the mill: Revolution Wines, the Solomon Wine Company, Heringer Estates, Carvalho Family Wines, and Todd Taylor. All offer free tastings on weekends, and all were open on the day of my visit except Revolution.
Our first stop was Todd Taylor, where Erin works at times and is a member of the wine club. Here we received a special tasting, with each wine being tasted in it's appropriate glass, instead of a normal tasting where all wines are sampled from the same glass type.
After leaving Todd Taylor Wines, we went into Heringer Estates for their tasting menu, including the reserves! There was only one ine not available, and we made it through the entire rest of the list! They have some excellent wines here as well, especially their Petite Sirah and Ports! At Solomon Wine Company we had a nice tasting which included some more every day wines as well as some special wines as well. Carvalho Family was having a release party for I believe their new Zinfandel, which was served with some very nice food samples, and we had a nice tasting here before returning to Todd and Gloria at Todd Taylor Wines to say goodbye!
I would definitely recommend that anyone who enjoys wine visit the Old Sugar Mill, as the people are excellent, as is the wine!
