Wellington

I am not sure where my pre-visit opinion of Wellington Wines came from, but we reluctantly visited which was very foolish.  The wines were great.  They were fairly expensive which prevented us from buying up a storm but I recommend a visit if you are in the Kenwood area of Sonoma.

Wellington Tasting Room

Some highlights from our tasting: the 03 Cab, the 04 Victory (cab blend)

Our pourer was lacking in charisma which silly as it may sound, can really affect my judgment of the wines and the experience.  Similar to going to a restaurant, how you are treated by the staff will definitely shape your experience.

Downsides? Wines are nice but expensive for what they are.  Hopefully you get a better server than we had.

Rating: 2 out of 4 – neutral.  But go if you are in the area and need a spot before the day ends.
