Loxton Cellars Review

Back in the day, when tasting rooms were low-tech and the winemaker often poured the wines, the winery experience unfolded pretty much the way it does at Loxton Cellars today. The personable owner, Chris Loxton, honed his skills at nearby Wellington, where he helped produce some of that winery's finest vintages. Full-bodied Zinfandels, Syrahs, and a Cabernet Sauvignon are the standouts at this operation, though some regulars swear by the more delicate Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley grapes and the seductively smooth Syrah Port. If you schedule the Walkabout with the Winemaker tour, you're sure to meet Loxton, but even if he's working elsewhere, one of his equally pleasant staffers will convey his passion for these wines.
