Doffo Winery is located at the far end of the Rancho California Wine Road in Temecula Valley. We visited it recently and was impressed with the wines we tasted and the Doffo Family. We met with Marcelo Duffo who is carrying on a wine making tradition that extends back several generations in Italy. Now Marcelo and his son, Damien, are continuing the tradition by making wines in an old World style.
We gave high points to the Doffo 2011 Zinfandel and the 2011 Mistura which is a blend of 90 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 10 per cent Petite Syrah. We also were impressed with the 2010 Malbec as well as the Argentinian Chimichurri which is served as an appetizer in the Duffo tasting room.
If you are interested in motorcycles you will enjoy a visit to Doffo Winery since the family has a large selection of bikes, many dating from the 1960s and 1970s.
Duffo Winery is located at 36083 Summitville Street where it meets Rancho California Road with the tasting room open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Telephone 866 469-8486, web www.doffowines.com.
