Wine Tasting: Acacia Winery
Here is the next stop on the Carneros loop. Acacia is located at 2750 Las Amigas rd so when you come out of Domaine Carneros take a right out of the driveway and head up the hill, there are some great vineyard views on Duhig rd.
Continue on Duhig rd. until you come to Las Amigas then go left. Acacia is the first winery on the left. Acacia is known for its Pinot and the St Clair vineyard across the steet is one of the best pinot producing vineyards in the valley.
Acacia is small so you need to make a reservation before you come, however if you don't have time just walk in and they write you into the book. Its a small tasting room but this is what I like best, the personal attention and no wine club pressure selling. If you like it you buy it! There is a Bocce Ball court and picnic tables overlooking the whole Carneros region with a view of the bay in distance.
Love this place!
