On Friday we visited Vena Cava and winery owned by Phil and Eileen Gregory, where Phil is also the Enólogo. The winery is made up of a number of upside down boats which welcomes you to a slightly funky decor.
There also is a water pond just past the parking lot. It gives a beach front feeling that you will not receive at any of the other wineries.
When we entered the winery, the crew were in the middle of bottling some of the wine. Very organized and productive process.
Inside the barrel storage area, the a numerous barrels of various blends, some of which have the same grapes but have slightly different mixes of the grapes.
Prior to our tasting Jo Ann was having a conversation about the history of the wines.
Vena Cava has an extensive portfolio of wines, but alas we did not get to taste all of them.
We did come back the following Tuesday in order to meet up with Phil and talk about his wines. Here is Jo Ann and Phil sharing a great glass of the Big Blend.
