Wineries of Santa Barbara County: A Traveling Winers Original Wine Trail

Santa Barbara is an absolutely beautiful city located just to the North of Los Angeles, on the Southern coast of California.  You come ashore from the Pacific and within a mile, at most, you start to climb into the hills that are the signature feature of the area.  The other Winers and I were lucky enough to have the chance to explore the area in ...

What do you get when you bring 3 successful Texas wineries together under one roof? You get the fourth entity - 4.0 Cellars.

Three wineries, one roof, one ...

Review: Pontotoc Vineyard – Fredericksburg, TX_old

Official Review by The Traveling Winers
March 4, 2018
A little slice of Europe in a little town in Texas. That's what you'll find when you visit Pontotoc Vineyards' Weingarten in small town Fredericksburg. Quaint, cozy and welcoming, the tasting room is fashioned after Weingartens in Vienna, Austria where owner Carl Money spent much of his time in earlier years. A still-practicing attorney by ...

Review: 1851 Vineyards – Fredericksburg, TX

Official Review by the Traveling Winers
February 23, 2018
Retirement. Oh, what a lovely thought! Just imagining days filled with nothing to do that you don't want to do. But, as is commonly said, retirement is easier for those that have a hobby or something to do during their "now free" days. So when the big "R" word came up for John and Dabs Brown Hollimon the wheels started spinning as to what was ...

February 7, 2018
  Although the name Biltmore is most famously known for the 250-room mansion located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, another connection to the name has been present for the past thirty-plus years - The Biltmore Winery. Passing through North Carolina and being familiar with the Biltmore name prompted The Traveling ...

January 29, 2018
Along U.S. Highway 64 traveling through North Carolina toward our final destination in the Outer Banks, we stumbled upon a little winery alongside the road, in a very picturesque setting beside this winding river called the Scuppernong. It wasn't difficult to catch our eye as you really can't miss the big red letters on the top of the quaint ...

If you've ever visited this part of Oregon wine country you know exactly what we mean when we talk about the beauty that is present when driving through the countryside, through the rolling hills scattered with farmland and vineyards, bordered with the towering mountain ranges and the beautiful blue sky placing the finishing touch on the ...

January 3, 2018
It's no doubt that if you are a Pinot Noir lover and happen to be browsing the Pinot aisle of your local wine store you will have at some point stumbled upon the brand Adelsheim. It makes sense. If you're looking for a great Pinot Noir you would walk straight to the Oregon section. And within that section, you should find one of the great ...

Review: Alloro Vineyard – Sherwood, OR

Official Review by The Traveling Winers
December 27, 2017
There is a lot in a name. For example: Alloro is the name of our featured Vineyard for this article. Alloro, an Italian word, also means laurel in English. The property on which Alloro sits has both Laurelwood soil and Laurel trees. And we will add our own two-cents here, Alloro means "darn good wine!"         The Alloro ...
