I enjoy wine and love going wine tasting but I’m still working on my wine palate. That said, if I’m free, I won’t say no to an invite to hang out with friends. If there is wine, even better. When Anne invited us to a private tasting at Silt Wine Company, Peter and I were more than happy to join in the fun.
We visited Silt Wine Company this past Saturday with a group of new friends, and we had a great experience. The wine tasting room is in Clarksburg, which is not far from Sacramento and includes a lovely drive along the Delta. If you’ve ever made the trip (or even if you haven’t), it has quite a different feel than the city.
The first thing you notice about the property where the tasting room is located is the charm. Situated in an old stable, the Silt Wine tasting room has a rustic (dare I say a little modern farmhouse) meets modern feel. The bar includes Edison lights and old wood but also marble countertops. Even more charming is Shannon, one of the co-owners and manager of the tasting room. The environment is so welcoming, and the customer service is top notch. Once you hear more about their story and their focus on members and quality you understand why they focus on private tastings only. All you need is four people to schedule one, I highly recommend it.
As for the wines, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked their tasting menu. I actually like all of the wines, my top two were the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc and the 2015 Petite Sirah but I also really like the 2017 Chenin Blanc (Chenin Blanc is what Clarksburg is known for) and the 2016 Teroldego. For me, I usually enjoy the company and laughs that come with wine tasting, but I loved the wines just as much this time. But don’t take it from me, contact them as soon as you have some time and set-up a private tasting.
I can’t stop raving about our experience. Silt Wine Company was fantastic, and I thought they were so generous to do a tour of the facilities (while under construction) and let us wander the property for as many pictures as we’d like. We met some wonderful people, had some great conversations, and took some great photos. Shout out to Anne for sharing those photos. We need to get in the habit of bringing our camera with us. Working on it. 😆
