Experience the Wines that Make Every Day
a Little Less Everyday at Woodbridge
by Robert Mondavi
The Woodbridge Visitors' Center offers tastings not only of the winery's well-known and widely distributed bottlings, but also of special, limited-edition wines that are available only in the tasting room or to wine club members. As you might expect, the visitors' center staff is down-to-earth, friendly and informative.
In between sipping wines, browse around the visitors' center and enjoy the wide array of merchandise for sale here. Actually, you could stock up on birthday and holiday gifts for both wine lovers and teetotalers. The displays include out-fitted picnic baskets, logo clothing, jewelry, chocolates, glassware, wine carriers, ceramic tableware and a unique brand of Woodbridge ground coffee beans. If you'd like to picnic on the spacious grounds of the winery but forgot to pack a lunch, never worry: you'll find deli sandwiches, cheeses and salami and an assortment of 187 ml (one nice glassful) screw cap bottles of wine to mix and match with your meal.
