The wine tasting experience at Aperture Cellars was stunning! I was able to experience my tasting both indoors and outdoors (taking in their gorgeous views for of course photo opps). Winemaker Jesse Katz’s phenomenal Bordeaux-style wines, made in this cool climate, create such a unique and fantastic tasting experience.

Views of our tasting. I love how although we were inside the sliding doors were open giving an almost inside and outside experience and of course letting us enjoy the stunning Vineyard views in the backdrop.
We started out with the 2019, Aperture Cellars Chenin Blanc. Interestingly these grapes are sourced from Clarksburg, California. This was very fresh, vibrant and enjoyable.
After the white wines, we moved on to the lovely red wines!
All smiles enjoying a perfect afternoon at Aperture Cellars, Healdsburg CA. I LOVE my job so much!

Such a beautiful new spot I am going to have to visit again, thank you Aperture Cellars. Cheers!
