Just up the hill from Kiona Winery, you’ll find a simple structure that houses the Fidelitas tasting room on Red Mountain. The southwest side of the building opens completely to the patio and views of adjacent vineyards. On this lovely spring day, the expanse was open allowing the inside and outside to become one beautiful, big space. The room was empty for the moment, so we had the complete attention of the two servers for quite awhile.
The tasting lineup for the day was limited to only four wines, all reds.
Four reds – a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Merlot, and two blends – each one was delicious. I would have liked to buy one of each, but the price point is a little bit high for our normal wine budget. However, if we were to want something really special for an occasion, I’d head straight to Fidelitas!
You can be sure we’ll visit the tasting room again because not only were the wines great, but the servers were friendly, chatty, informative and really fun. Our experience there was everything you want in a tasting.
Too bad we ran out of time or you can bet we would have bought a glass to enjoy on the patio!
