Winemaker Rhonda Wood
Rhonda started making wine in 1996 - after they purchased the Merlot vineyard where she and Michael built their home. Together, their passion for wine and belief that winemaking begins in the vineyard led them to Livermore Valley. They are tireless champions about the quality of Livermore Valley soils and their commitment to Valley grown grapes. The winery is open for tasting by appointment.

2009 Cabernet Franc
  • Appellation: Livermore Valley
  • Winemaker: Rhonda Wood
  • We found a jewel of a vineyard in a very cool spot of the Livermore Valley. Nestled between the Wente Golf Course and the Sparkling Cellars, the small yield was thought to be the perfect amount for a blending varietal with our wines. What we got however was a classic Cabernet Franc which demanded a separate release. We acquiesced and though we steal a small amount for blending, we decided to bottle the rest on its own. Due to the increasing demand for our Cabernet Franc, we searched out an addit... ...read more

    2006 Merlot, One Oak Vineyard, Livermore Valley
  • Appellation: Livermore Valley
  • Winemaker: Rhonda Wood
  • Our estate Merlot Vineyard is located in the southeast foothills of Livermore Valley and has one lovely California Live Oak that is home to a Red Tail Hawk. Michael and Rhonda fell in love with this vineyard in 1995 and envisioned building a home and raising their family amongst the vines. Rhonda dreamt of retiring as an airline pilot and making wine. Michael is still dreaming. Merlot, Merlot, Merlot Amore! This estate wine gives us a floral blueberry top note supported by a line-dried fresh... ...read more

    2009 Petite Sirah, Livermore Valley
  • Appellation: Livermore Valley
  • Winemaker: Rhonda Wood
  • Our Petite Sirah is from the Casa de Vinas Vineyard and has some of the thickest skins of all Vitis Vinifera grapes. This unique feature of PS grapes makes it possible to create a wine that is so dark purple it is almost black. But hand in hand with color anthocyanins go grape tannins, so waiting to pick the fruit until these tannins are sufficiently ripe is the key to creating a wine that is ready to drink when the fruit is at its brightest.

    True to its origins, this year’s petite is s...

    2010 Chardonnay "Para Mas Amigas"
  • Appellation: Livermore Valley
  • Winemaker: Rhonda Wood
  • I made this wine for my girlfriends who kept telling me they needed a Chardonnay to drink. My high school Spanish only took me so far, so instead of creating a wine “for my girlfriends,” I created a wine “for more girlfriends.”

    This wine has a sunny green-gold color that is bright and crystal clear. It is a chardonnay which offers an exotic, tropical nose of pineapple, mandarin orange and Asian pear with hints of wet stone adding a refreshing mineral quality. Flavors of toasty ha...
