I'm heading back home tomorrow but realized I never shared a fun tasting experience from my time home in July!
We headed up to Calistoga to check out the farmer's market as well as a new antique store and stumbled upon Tank Garage Winery. The tasting room is a converted 1930's gas station right on Highway 29 just before you enter town.
The wines are fun blends of unique varietals with catchy names and labels. We bought a bottle of the 2012 And She Was White, a blend of Granache Blanc and Roussanne. While I'm not as familiar with these varietals, it reminded me of everything I love in a wine, fruit forward, fuller bodied, but the aging in neutral French oak keeps it fresh and clean.
I would highly recommend a stop at Tank if you're traveling through Calistoga!
