I just stopped by Ross Andrew and Mark Ryan’s tasting rooms this afternoon. They are now open for business. Their official hours starting next week will be Thursday through Sunday 12-5.
The Ross Andrew Winery tasting room is a small intimate space, but very welcoming as you walk in. Ross was excited that they could open today. Just a few things to finish up. Vineyard pictures are currently going up on the wall. Ross was pouring today and I really loved the Meadow. It’s a Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurtztraminer, and Riesling blend. My favorite red was the Red Table wine which is a Cab/Merlot blend.
Mark Ryan Winery has a bigger space next door and it was very busy. An Oriental carpet, an enourmas mirror on the wall and a distressed dresser are all part of the decor. I did enjoy seeing everyone in their flip-flops and summer wear which perfectly matched with the 2008 Dissident White which was just released the other week. It’s still a tossup on the reds. Can’t decide between the Water Witch and Dead Horse.
