California Bungalow Brings Old World-Style Wine Tastings To West Coast

By Joe Stills

An accordion rests in the foyer of the 1926 bungalow. A short walk from the Napa Valley Wine Train—a tourist draw that beckons travelers to career through the California wine country’s vineyards by boxcar—the comfortable confines of Jeff Durham and Joey Wolosz’s single-story home welcome travelers to a different kind of journey through wine country.

At The Gentleman Farmer Bungalow, the flavors of this verdant land of rolling vineyards find their way from fields and pastures to pallets. And they do it through a pair of careful, considerate hosts that want travelers to know the stories in the walls of the historic home.
