The owner served our wine, and he was probably the most friendly, talkative fellow we met along our 3-week trip around the Gold Country. The wines were pretty good, and I bought a bottle of their Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve. There are also some interesting goodies sold there by local people, that you can't get anywhere else.
We were staying in the area and decided to drive to Butterfly Creek Winery for tasting. The owner was there and welcomed us in for tastings of their Chardonnay, Zinfandel, merlot, red blend and Cabernet wines. Since we're red wine drinkers, we skipped the Chardonnay, but did sample the rest while visiting with the owner. He shared the family and... 更多

While driving down a road that you think is taking you off the edge of the earth you find a simple tasting room with picnic... 更多
Cute family owned winery nestled in the Sierra mountains near Yosemite, a perfect stop after you've visited the park. If you're in a bad mood, Bob Gerken, the winemaker, will see to it that you don't leave that way!! Butterfly Creek has won several awards and has a nice variety of reds and whites to suit most palates. BCW is... 更多
