The punchy motto here is "no wimpy wines," and the winery generally succeeds, especially with its signature big, bold Zinfandels, which are sometimes blended with other varietals grown in the same field (this is called a "field blend"). Ravenswood also produces Bordeaux-style blends, early-harvest Gewürztraminer, and lightly sparkling Moscato. Tours focusing on viticultural practices, held daily at 10:30, include a barrel tasting of wines in the cellar. To learn even
more about the wine-making process, make an appointment for one of the wine-blending sessions ($50), held on Friday and Saturday at 11.
