A.V. winery, vineyard tours set to begin

first_imgDesignation as an American Viticulture Area would mean the Antelope Valley has unique topography and soil that can produce a unique grape, officials said. The four areas would be the Antelope Valley, Leona Valley, Acton and Agua Dulce area, plus the Tehachapi-Cummings Valley area. “Wine connoisseurs will buy wine for that extra distinction and nuance,” said Robert Woods, association spokesman and Leona Valley Winery technology director. Bob and Patty Souza, owners of Souza Family Vineyards in Tehachapi, where they grow grapes on four acres to make Primitivo Zinfandel wine, said they are excited about the tours. “We are thrilled they included us because we are sort of an outpost,” Bob Souza said. The Souzas said they are planning to add a wine-tasting room and establish a bed-and-breakfast this summer. The winegrowers association is a nonprofit organization that was formed last October to promote wine production and awareness about the industry in the greater Antelope Valley area. Membership is open to wineries, vineyards and wine enthusiasts. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Local vintners began replanting grapevines about 25 years ago, and the region now boasts five wineries, 33 vineyards and three tasting rooms. “People will stay at hotels, visiting areas and wine-tasting rooms,” Kilmer said. Kilmer said there will be four- and eight-hour tours, with the option of staying at a bed-and-breakfast inn that is planned at a winery in Tehachapi. Tour prices and information will be made available in May on the association’s Web site, www.avwinegrowers.org. Association officials also said they are applying to have four local areas federally designated as distinct wine-producing regions, which will increase the value of the grapes and local wine production. LANCASTER – The newly formed Antelope Valley Winegrowers Association will launch wine tours this summer to boost tourism, business and job growth, officials said Tuesday. The tours are scheduled to start in mid- to late June with the help of two limousine companies and will involve wineries and vineyards stretching from Agua Dulce to Tehachapi. “We have Napa to the north, and Temecula, Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. We are in the middle,” said Chantel Kilmer, association president and marketing director of Cameo Vineyards. “How difficult would it be to stop on the way through?” During a news conference, organizers noted that the Antelope Valley has a long and rich history of wine-making that ended with Prohibition in the 1920s. last_img read more
