SCHARFFENBERGER

Scharffenberger  Winery – 8501 Highway 128 –  Philo, CA

November, 2015

This was a very pretty winery, although I expected more in the way of packaging of products, and of the tasting room.  The product is advertised with colorful, artistic labels, and I expected to find that kind of label on the bottles.  The tasting room was a bit underwhelming, but they did have some nice art work on the walls.  This is the same company that owns ScharffenBerger Chocolates, and I thought perhaps they would have wine and chocolate pairings-but they did not.  That being said, the wine hostess was a lovely older woman who knew a great deal about the wines, as well as the surrounding area, having lived in the Anderson Valley all of her life.

Tastings were $3 per person/ sharing allowed.
