The clear and mild weather between rain storms made for a pleasant afternoon last Saturday at Galante Vineyards in Carmel Valley. Jack and Dawn Galante, their family and staff, were gracious hosts at their well attended open house. We tasted several soon-to-be-released bottled wines and barrel samples, plus hors d’oeuvres. Sitting at tables under a tent, we enjoyed the views across the vineyard to snow capped mountains in the distance. A friend had highly recommended their Cabernet Sauvignon and we were certainly not disappointed. They made two available: Red Rose Hill and Blackjack Pasture.
