Do you have Strawberry Wine? That was the most asked question this last weekend at the Santa Maria annual Strawberry Festival held at the downtown fairpark. Although the answer was, no, San Andreas West Wines served twelve different varietals! Varietals ranged from a cool crisp Sauvignon Blanc to a supple Chardonnay for white wines. While the red wines varied from a smooth Merlot and Syrah, zesty Cabernet Sauvignon or spicy Zinfandel to name a few. Festival patrons loved the wines so much San Andreas West Wines reports a 25% increase in sales for the 2010 Strawberry Festival.
