Senders in the News
Davis Life Magazine - WELL FED
Yolo County was well-represented at this year’s California’s Grape and Gourmet event which was held at the Sacramento Convention Center. With more than 300 wineries serving over 700 medal-winning wines as well as 80 restaurants, we simplified the night by spending our time with our local winemakers including Senders Wines, Spoto, Rominger-West, Berryessa Gap as well as Hillstone Olive Oil.
To participate, all wineries had earned a ribbon for at least one of their wines and were broken down by region, varietals, etc.
Our first stop was with Mark West at the Rominger-West booth. Their award-winning Syrah is delicious. It wasn’t the first time we’ve had it, as we love visiting Mark at the winery. He reminded us that we haven’t made one of their Thursday happy hours with live music yet, and he’s absolutely right. It’s now on our calendar. The Rominger-West vineyards are located west of Winters and the winery is in Davis on Second Street across from Target. www.romingerwest.com
Next we visited Senders Wine where owner & winemaker Craig Senders welcomed us as well as his friends & neighbors, Dave Fugino and Dave’s wife, Sarah Schrupp. They were happily helping pour for the evening and we tried several of their wines. Craig and Karen Senders live in El Macero but their wines are made from Napa and Sonoma grapes and produced at a small custom crush facility in Napa. www.senderswines.com
