Top 10 Wineries of the Week (Jul 3 - Jul 9)

Welcome to this week's list of U.S. wineries experiencing the most love (or at least page views) from AWG wine lovers.

What a difference a week makes. Except for the Napa free tasting wineries, no other California winery made last week's list. Apparently, that angered the wine gods, and this week California wineries hold eight of the ten spots.

Thanks to a review by Sally Hanssen, Parma Ridge Winery becomes the first Idaho winery to make the top ten list. Parma Ridge not only made the list; it took the #1 spot!

Arizona's Caduceus Cellars refuses to budge from the #3 position, and Domaine Drouhin continues its long tradition of representing Oregon on the list. California wineries returning to the list are Stag's Leap Wine Cellars (Napa), Duckhorn Vineyards (Napa), Scribe Winery (Sonoma), and Hanzell Vineyards (Sonoma).

California wineries making the list for the first time include the relatively new Bien Nacido Vineyards tasting room in Los Olivos and Temecula's Monte de Oro Winery.
