Summerwood Winery and Inn is one of the most luxurious places for lodging in the area.  Across the street from the winery is an 8 room Inn, complete with Breakfast in the morning.  They serve an excellent breakfast on the patio under the grandfather oaks, facing the vineyards.  Also the resident chief will cook dinner for you if you arrange it in advance.  Arranging a private wine pairing dinner is available and it was fabulous.  The chief came out with every course and explained the dish and the wine.

The Winery features many nice wines, they feature many different red and white varietals, Cabernet Savignion, Syrah, Merlot, Zinfindel, GSM and other blends.  The Winery focuses on Estate and local wines.  The winery has the Diosa and Diosa Blanc as their reserve, flagship wines.  Try the Vin Rouge, a blend of local grapes that changes yearly.  With your tastings, there often will be complimentary samples of cheeses, crackers and desserts.  They have an excellent little gift shop with cheeses, snacks and great gifts.

There is also a nice place in the back of the tasting room to picnic or enjoy your tastings.  A stay at the Inn here would be the perfect accompaniment to the wine tasting here, call  ahead wine club members get priority at the Inn.  Servers are friendly and cordial and willing to answer any questions you may have about the wines or the area.
