Wineries Visited

Lori and Ray have visited over 400 wineries, as part of a “Research” program. First-hand experience is a great way to learn about how wines are made and, most importantly, taste the results. We find that the quality and value of wine correlates with the passion and thoughtfulness of the winemakers. We carry wines from many of those we visit. Our travels sometimes lead to exclusives and special wines at Pairings. During our travels we also explore the foods of the areas, looking for indigenous pairings to share back at the store. See wineries we have visited here, and our full selection of wines with detailed descriptions . Our blog describes some of our favorite visits.
