Christine Woods Winery

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
In 1966, Christine Woods Winery bought forty acres at land in Philo, California. This property was to be used as a place for rest and relaxation. However, in 1975, acreage was cleared and planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Gamay Beaujolais. So much for relaxation, the work had just begun. They moved from their home in Walnut Creek in 1980. By 1982, Vernon was making wine for twenty years as a home winemaker. During that period, he attended several classes in winemaking and viticulture at the University of California at Davis and other private schools in preparation for the first crush in their newly bonded winery.
Christine Woods Winery has Pinot Noir, which are available in the flavors of Black cherry, raspberry and strawberry, along with vanilla and spice. Their wine is aged in French Oak, which ages well. Their 2000 Pinot Noir includes Estate Reserve Black cherry flavors, woody, earthy, some vanilla, luscious, dark purple color. This wine is earthy and made in a Burgundian style in the traditional manner using french oak, with some black cherry and strawberry flavors followed by vanilla and spice and everything nice.
Christine Woods’ winemaking is a dynamic process where diversity is created by tailoring vinification and cellar practices to the individual vineyard lots. Nevertheless, there is a crucial process that defines their idealistic approach and establishes a reference for maneuvers exclusively suited to each fermentation lot.
