Gloria Ferrer Caves And Vineyards

Another vineyard and another tasting in California wine country. This time it was for the Bubbles and Bites tasting at Gloria Ferrer Caves And Vineyards. Our party of four pulled in to the mostly empty parking lot and climbed the stairs to the hacienda. We arrived close to the opening hour which is a good thing if you want the avoid the busloads of tourists and have the staff pretty much to yourself.

Within moments we were guided to a private room for Bubbles and Bites. Sparkling wines were poured and amazing bites were served to compliment the varietal wines.

After our nibbles we were taken on a guided tour of the Ferrer property and operation.

The home of happy California milk cows.

Robotic wine bottle stacking machine. Reminded me of Ripley's alien fighting suit.
From modern to ancient machinery.

Olives grown on the property. They are not ripe and taste awful - trust me.

Mature olive tree.
