City living is often about doing as much as you can in the space that you have. Revolution wines is an urban boutique winery and bistro, with wine making and production on site—and doing it well.
So what's the big deal about making wine in a city? Well, Revolution Winery is Sacramento's first urban winery since prohibition. Second—there's the issue of land. The winery is smack dab in the city. Hence, Revolution purchases their wine grapes within 50 miles of the winery from local growers in the greater Sacramento region. Their wines are made with the intention to showcase the Sacramento terroir.
Revolution tends toward a “less is more” focus on their wines. Less oak. Less time with the wine on the skins. In fact, you won't find an industry or trade link on their site with detailed information on each wine. A bit of mystery in today's age of over information is refreshing. But feel free to ask questions on the wines during your tasting. Revolution is family owned and the staff are friendly and only too happy to share about their wines.
The tasting room and bistro is city-casual and is open to hosting events, weddings, meetings, and gatherings. Try their wines in a tasting flight, by the glass, or a bottle in the bistro. Wines are available to take home via bottles, through the wine club, or their Rex Growler—a refillable glass wine jug.
Revolution Wines is located in a trendy corner of shops. I've included some pics of the area
since it's a fun place to frequent.
