It’s wine club pick-up month at Domaine Carneros, which reminded me that I neglected to share with you my first comprehensive review of the winery over at American Winery Guide. Domaine Carneros has been producing traditional method sparkling wines as well as pinot noir and other varietal grapes in the Carneros AVA for almost 30 years. My first visit was Labor Day weekend 2012 during one of my many visits to the Napa Valley I moved here a little over two years ago. I never tire of the experience.
