Fog Crest Vineyard

Living just outside of Napa has real life perks! Although I’m not a big drinker, when I do drink, my preference is a glass of Pinot Noir. So, when I was perusing Black Vines, my high school hommie’s dope space for all thing Black and wine, she shared a Black-owned winery list.

When I read that Fog Crest is a Black, woman-owned vineyard known for their Pinot, I was sold. A couple days later, hubby and I were there.

“The vineyard is situated on the Wilson Grove formation in a natural amphitheater of the Russian River Valley, whose soils have become recognized as some of the world’s best for cultivating ultra premium Pinot Noir grapes.”

The Fog Crest estate is breathtaking. The patio views facing east to Sonoma Mountain is perfect for sipping Pinot Noir. We have been to the vineyard quite a few times now.

I adore spending hours relaxing, tasting, and basking in this beautiful, idyllic setting. Check out this beautiful video featuring owner, vintner Rosalind Manoogian, produced by Calvin Gaskin, Bela’s brother.
