Founded in 1989, this family-run winery is small (production is limited to less than 3,000 cases each year) and inviting—there’s no visitor’s center or gift shop here, instead, you’ll find Judd Finkelstein, the winery’s good-natured namesake, who has a penchant for fruit-forward Pinot Noirs and Hawaiian shirts. Tastings are hands-on, educational affairs, in which staff guide you through tasting notes and local history. If you’re looking to delve deeper still, sign up for one of Judd’s Bottle Blending sessions, in which you and three to five friends can create your own red-wine blend from beakers of local Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc, bottle and label it by hand, and take several bottles home.
