Thomas Coyne Winery Historical Tasting Room

I visited Thomas Coyne Winery this past weekend with my cousin, brother and Julia.  I really love it there.  Bought their Grenache for $18 a bottle.  Not a bad price for such an unbelievable wine!  It was a hard decision.  Most of their reds were really great.   Let me tell you, once you taste the wine, you will stay awhile.  Before you know it, you will be tasting port outside in awe of the unbelievable view!  Thought I would pass along their newsletter.  I hope this inspires you to take a trip out there.
