The tasting room is a cozy, converted garage, complete with barrels and a wooden bar. Sascha La Russo is the tasting room manager and a classically trained opera singer. You never know when she might break into song. Visitors can taste all six of Estate d’Iacobelli’s offerings for $10. Current offerings are 2011 Viognier, 2010 Late Harvest Viognier Sticky Fingers, 2010 Sangiovese, 2009 and 2010 Rodolfo Red, a blend of Mourvedre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese as well as 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. I especially enjoyed the Sangiovese and 2009 Rodolfo Red.
Estate d’Iacobelli is located at 2175 Tecalote Drive in Fallbrook, just above Pala Mesa. Call for hours and directions, (760) 723-0616.
