A RootStock Gift
In 2008, Corinne Martinez purchased an historic building on Main St. in downtown Winters, CA to market and expand regional recognition of local wineries along with Berryessa Gap Vineyards. With an eye on the future, Corinne’s vision helped create a joint tasting room featuring local wines from both Yolo and nearby Solano counties.
RootStock hosts quite a large and joyous mural covering an entire wall, a visual reminder of the local terroir, with landscape of the rolling hills playfully beckoning a sense of place.
Wine gift items, glassware, Italian pottery and Spanish cookware can be purchased along with wine racks made from old wine barrels. Also featured are local olive and walnut oils, and of course delicious cheeses and chocolates.
The Alley Gallery at RootStock features Plein Air and local artists, with music events regularly scheduled to celebrate local talent.
RootStock specialty gifts and tasting room is named in honor of the Martinez Orchards legacy, growing grapevine rootstock in Winters, CA since 1969 - starting with Dan Martinez Sr. and Ernest Peninou growing rootstock for then emerging Sonoma and Napa wine country.
