Allegretto Wines Tour & Tasting

My birthday journey to Allegretto Winery Resort has been nothing in need of magical. We began off my precise birthday with an Allegretto Wines winery tour and wine tasting right here on the resort. The 2-hour occasion started at 10 am with a tour of the property and ended with a tasting within the courtyard. (Be aware: you may simply do one or the opposite.) We obtained to see fairly a little bit of the resort’s beautiful gardens through the hour-long tour. When you’re staying on the resort, it’s a good way to study extra concerning the property.

Winery Tour

The climate was completely attractive for our leisurely stroll across the property. We obtained to see the place the lovable alpacas and sheep dwell, we realized all concerning the zodiac backyard, and we even toured the abbey all earlier than heading up the hill to essential winery. (PSA: You’ll wish to put on snug footwear for the tour, as we walked not less than a mile and up a steep hill!) There our tour information identified the second winery excessive up within the mountains in Willow Creek.

Most notably, we realized the heart-wrenching story behind Allegretto’s therapeutic gardens. The proprietor’s son tragically misplaced his life in a automobile accident. Dylan may be very a lot a part of the guts of Allegretto now; even the primary assembly room is called after him in order that he’s a part of the entire choices. I had a lump in my throat listening to that. What a beautiful solution to honor somebody.

The gardens are designed to advertise peace and serenity, as designing them helped the proprietor via his grief. As you all know, the final 12 months and a half of my life has been fairly devastating and I’ve been a ball of tension and heartbreak. I instructed Sarah on our first full day that I really feel extra at peace at Allegretto than I’ve in years. Seems, it’s designed that will help you heal. How pretty is that?

The Tasting

Our tasting started at 11 am on the tasting room’s courtyard. I’m so pleased we obtained to take a seat exterior and benefit from the gorgeous Tuscan views of Allegretto Winery Resort. Our tasting included 5 wines and couldn’t have been much less rushed. We simply might have sat there for an hour and a half! A number of scrumptious meals objects had been out there for buy to get pleasure from with the tasting, however sadly we had been simply too stuffed from breakfast at Cello.

We tried six Allegretto Wines throughout our tasting. Our favorites had been the 2022 Duetto (a wonderful mix of Viognier and Vermentino), a bonus style of rosé that smelled precisely like my Strawberry Galette, and the 2019 Willow Creek Cabernet Sauvignon with hints of vanilla and a juicy mouthfeel.

The winery tour and tasting is to not be missed in your journey to Allegretto Winery Resort!
