WindsorTastingLounge_patioThe Windsor Tasting Lounge was started by four wine lovers who saw a need in the town of Windsor for Wine Tasting, a Wine Lounge, and a Wine Shop so they figured, why not combine the three? At the Windsor Tasting Lounge you get it all. A tasting room, a wine lounge, and a retail wine shop.  Featuring Dom Whitney Wines (a collaboration of Dominic Foppoli and Whitney Opperman) and Vino Valpredo Wine (created by husband and wife Natalia Valpredo Fritz and Clay Fritz), drop in tastings are available Wednesday through Sunday and larger groups are available by appointment. More than a tasting room, this is a Wine Lounge, where you can relax on the patio and listen to live music Thursdays and Fridays.

Adjacent to the Wine Lounge, Old Redwood Brewing Company offers tastings of their current nanobrews. They are really making a name for themselves among the craft brew industry, so come in and check out their latest! 9000 Windsor Road, Windsor. 707.657.7804 • windsortastinglounge.com

Tasting Room on the Green offers drop in wine tastings, featuring wines from Deux Amis Winrey and Mutt Lynch Winery. Stop in and meet winemakers Phyllis Zouzounis and Brenda Lynch. The tasting room is dog friendly, so bring Fido.  Mutt Lynch’s award-winning Reserve wines are labeled “mbf” (Man’s Best Friend”) and are single vineyard expressions of Charbono, Chardonnay, Petite Sirah, Primitivo and Zinfandel.  Brenda also produces a range of “Dog Series” wines that feature irreverent labels with names such as “Merlot Over and Play Dead”, “Unleashed Chardonnay” and “Fou Fou le Blanc”. Deux Amis specializes in producing outstanding Zinfandels from Sonoma County in addition to award-winning Petite Sirah. 9050 Windsor Rd, Windsor. 707-687-5089. • deuxamiswines.commuttlynchwinery.com
