Ever wanted to visit Tuscany in California? This has been my heaven for several years. It’s a family-run winery in Santa Ynez. The wine is sensational and the family that runs it is a huge part of the experience. If you become a wine club member, you can rent the charming little guest house on the property for a great deal. It is a lovely 3-bedroom house that sleeps 6 people: 3 couples, or a great place for a girl’s weekend. What a nice treat to finish your day of wine tasting in the beautiful Santa Ynez wine-covered hills and never have to leave.
After a delicious tasting on the beautiful patio at Demetria, you just have to walk a few steps up to the amazing cottage. When there, you can cook delicious meals and of course, drink the best wine finds of the day. I have visited so many of the wineries in the area and this is by far my favorite. Look for Alexis, one of the owners, and he will make you feel like family…and teach you about the amazing grapes of the region.
