Fantesca Estate & Winery
Steeped in history, Fantesca Estate & Winery was originally the dowry of Caroline Bale when she married Charles Krug in the 1860s. Today Fantesca's lineup includes the only Chardonnay made by world-renowned winemaker Heidi Barrett, as well as her only Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon -- plus a red blend and a Pinot Noir. In keeping with the strong female heritage of the property, owners Susan and Duane Hoff chose the winery’s namesake as Fantesca -- a sexy, smart and strong-willed female character in early Italian theatrical performances. Fantesca wines are available by allocation only and the winery is open for private tours and tastings by appointment at 707.968.9229.
