Wine Tasting @ Woof ‘n Rose!

Wine Tasting @ Woof ‘n Rose!

Posted on

First stop of the Ramona Wine Trail of this day.  Woof n’ Rose..can you guess?  Well, they LOVE dogs (woof) and have lovely roses planted everywhere on their property.  I’ll start with the dogs first. We had the great pleasure of meeting recently adopted Syrah (sheppard mix) and their new puppy Tawny (short for tawny port, a white lab, i believe).  These are winery dogs, through and through.  If you visit www.woofnrose.com, the’ve made a tribute to all the dogs in their families past which is a reflection of their true love for dogs. Next, owners Steve and Marilyn Kahle (who I understand to be married 40+ years!) and their oldest son Travis and his long time girlfriend Susan.  This family is a hoot, lots of energy and excitement here!  We called and made an appointment to take our friends Adam and Dawna wine tasting.  I’ve always admired Woof n’ Rose’s wines, they truly make great wine.  It was neat to pull up to their establishment as they rounded up the family and dogs to meet us at their winery. They have a similar setup to us, only they have us beat by a few hundred sq.ft.  It’s a decent size garage, full of barrels and wine making eqpt.  Off to the left is a wall of pictures, licenses and awards.  And a nice mosaic round table where they do their wine tastings.  It was so fun to share in a part of the joyous, family, wine sharing festivities.  Steve and Marilyn talked about the wines and showed us around their vineyard.  Our favorites where the 2008 Cab Franc and the 2008 Red Blend named Eglantine (Cab Franc and Merlot).  They were also pouring their Estate Reserve 2007 Cab Franc, 2008 Merlot and a 2009 (?) Blush Grenache.  We had fun. Good people, lots of laughs.   Check out their website for more information www.woofnrose.com.
