Wine Tasting @ Mahogany!

Wine Tasting @ Mahogany!

Posted on

Second stop of the Ramona Wine Trail of this day.  Mahogany Mountain Winery, named after the location of their street Mahogany Mountain Road. This winery is a little further out but worth the drive.  To get there you drive through Mussey Grade Road which is a very scenic drive. Lots of huge, old oak trees line both sides of this road and go on forever.  Mahogany is located amongst a bunch of mountains which can be admired with the great view outdoors on their patio.  One would wonder how a vineyard and winery could be located in all the mountains and big rocks!  But they’ve done it.  Mike and Kim Hargett are the owners here, along with their son Geoff. They’ve had their tasting room opened almost 3 months now.  Kim says they all take turns and rotate the wine tasting room responsibilities.  This is my second time here and Kim has been a great hostess.  They have a stunning wine tasting room.  They really did go all out in their efforts with this project.  We all admired the oil painting that adorns the back wall that was painted for the winery by a family friend.  The bottles are actually painted with the Mahogany label.  Very classy.  Kim gave us the tasting tour of all the wines on hand.  Our favorites were the 2008 Syrah and the 2003 Port.  In fact, I think we bought the last bottle of the port and we wanted two!  Kim said she is going to get Mike quickly back to work on making more port!  For more information about Mahogany, visit www.mahoganymountain.com.
