Groovy Winery Alert!

The tasting room of four-month old winery Mercury Geyserville, in the Alexander Valley, has an urban-in-the-country feel. White walls, a vintage record player playing Johnny Cash, and shelves with homemade pickles and pear preserves in jars. The wine (three Pinots, three Bordeaux blends, a table wine) is delicious, and sold in non-traditional bottles. The Messenger, one of the Bordeaux blends, comes in an elegant brandy-style bottle (pictured.) The table wine is sold in mini-jugs. I predict fun parties at this tasting room, and fun parties at my house with the wine.
