Beautiful Cine Winery

Cline Winery is my all time favorite winery. Its like visiting the Garden of Eden. Just beautiful. Great wine and great host. Perfect way to spend the days with friends and family. You can even reserve a lunch table and bring your own lunch or buy lunch at the winery
Across the street form Cline is Jacuzzi Winery. That’s right, the same Jacuzzi that manufacture the Hot Tubs and Saunas. The Jacuzzi family started their business in the aviation industry. You’ll learn all about this Italian family amazing business journey when you visit their beautiful winery. They also have olive oil tasting and the best winery gift shop that I’ve ever been to.
Viansa Winery is also next door to Jacuzzi and offers a spectacular view of Sonoma Valley.
