While on my first Auburn area wine tasting adventure, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of my first stop, Fortezza Winery. Upon entering the tasting room, I was greeted by the winemaker/owner, Lisa Mann. Lisa has worked to create a friendly and relaxed tasting atmosphere. Lisa’s life is engrained in the wine industry. She offers both knowledge and entertaining stories. Tastings are $4. They also offer olive oil tastings for an additional fee. Fortezza has a long line-up of wines. My personal favorites were the Estate Viogner and the Sangiovese. Be sure to stop by Fortezza Winery next time you are in the Auburn area, it is not to be missed!
