Acorn Winery at Buon Appetito Déjà vu? At our last dinner, we featured a pink wine and a passel of reds from Wood Family Vineyards at an Italian restaurant, C’era Una Volta. This month, we will feature a pink wine and a passel of reds from Acorn Winery of Russian River Valley AVA at an Italian restaurant Buon Appetito.  Betsy and Bill Nachbaur purchased the then century-old Alegria Vineyards in 1990, and started Acorn Winery a few years later. They are known for their field blended wines, grapes grown together (like in the photo) and then co-fermented.

If you like maps, like I do, you’ll find this vineyard map most interesting: Vineyard Map
