Our April Member of the Month is The Tasting Room on the Green

The Tasting Room on the Green is a collaborative tasting room located on the Windsor Town Green at 9050 Windsor Road. It features the hand-crafted wines of two of Sonoma County’s most notable female winemakers, Phyllis Zouzounis of Deux Amis and Brenda Lynch of Mutt Lynch Winery.

Deux Amis is French for "two friends" and began as a partnership between two friends, Phyllis Zouzounis and Jim Penpraze. Six years of working together (with many a late night relaxing over a glass of Zinfandel after a long day on the crush pad) found the two friends envisioning their own winery. The dream became a reality with the 1987 harvest. That year, Deux Amis produced one hundred cases of Zinfandel from a single Dry Creek Valley vineyard. Today, Deux Amis hand-crafts nearly 1,500 cases of wine from vineyards in Sonoma County's Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys.

The California wine business brought Mutt Lynch owners Chris and Brenda Lynch together. A chance meeting over 25 years ago became love at first sight, and it has been a wonderful ride ever since. Mutt Lynch Winery was born in 1995 combining their mutual passion for wine and “all things dog.” In addition to creating amazing wine, the Lynches are proud supporters of a multitude of local animal rescue organizations and are tireless advocates for all things canine.
