Come visit the hidden gem of beautiful Dry Creek Valley. David Coffaro Winery has been making wine for over 25 years, and has worked hard to produce top-shelf wines at a fair price. The 20-acre vineyard is home to over 30 different grape varietals that range from the Rhone Valley of France to the Alto Adige region of Italy. This allows them to produce a wide range of single varietal wines and eclectic wine blends. If you want to try something different, this is the place to visit! Reservations Required.
Beautifully appointed guest rooms, country gardens, pool, and the luxurious spa provide a tranquil setting for guests to relax within the hotel grounds.
The Hotel is set on the western edge of Healdsburg’s historic town plaza, and guests can enjoy some of the world’s finest vineyards, restaurants and shops within minutes of the front steps.
WineStopper’s stop of the week was at Portalupi Wine speaking with Maria Magana. She presented the 2019 Zinfandel, Marcucci Farms from the Russian River Valley. Portalupi wines are inspired by owner Jane Portalupi’s Italiian heritage and coupled with the Russian River six-generation Italian vineyard Marcucci Farms there is no other wine to highlight Cal-Ital.
Here is what is in the bottle!
|Appelation||Russian River Valley|
|Elevage||16 Months in American Oak, 40% new, 30% 1 year, 30% 2 year, Brix 25.2|
|Winery Notes||The Wine is boldly fruit-forward typical of the Russian River Valley’s cooler climate Zinfandels. A wine which evokes memories of past Zinfandels produced by our Italian ancestors with red fruit, hints of fresh strawberries and even resperries, with a touch of white pepper and cinnamon. Very classic, Cal-Ital Zinfandel. Age 4-6 eyars.|
