First of all, there seemed to be a general air of confusion about the place. While we were tasting, we had 3 different servers. It was not really crowded. We had the restaurant chef serving us on and off as he was also cooking. He had no knowledge of which order to serve. We then had another gal (passing through?)... More

I bought a bottle of Moscata a few months ago from Tara Winery and saved for a special occassion. I noticed the cork had moved up a full 1/2 inch under the seal. When I opened the bottle the wine fizzed out, smell sour, and tasted sour. Needless to say I tossed the entire contents. I thought about returning to... More

Driving back home from the DFW Metroplex in the late afternoon. We live 15 miles south of Athens, Tx., 21 miles south of the little sign on US-175 pointing down a little country road with the following, Tara Winery and Dining. My wife and I had noticed the sign many times before but never checked it out. Needing a dining... More

My husband and I visited Tara Winery this past weekend and were really impressed. The owner, Patrick along with his staff (Roman & Desiree) treated us like family. Patrick also has several gorgeous dogs (Spur, Wilson, Fuzzy & Prince) that spent the day with us. The dogs really made the experience special. We were blown away by the wine. Our... More

First off, we were there on a Thursday, just after 12:00 noon. When first walking in the reception was kind of cool, like why are you here? After a few tastings and realizing we were actually going to buy some wine, they became more cordial and friendly. Dogs roaming the winery and dining area makes me not want to eat... More

Great communication with the owner, Patrick, for our Son's wedding rehearsal dinner. Fantastic setting and atmosphere. Bride and Groom were extremely happy with everything. Food was fabulous, especially the bruschetta. The wines they have are amazing, with you being able to sample them before you order what you want. Service was top-notch. I recommend this Winery/Restaurant to anyone or any... More

My husband and I stopped in after a day outdoors and enjoyed a wine tasting. We were pleasantly surprised and purchased a few bottles to bring home and enjoy later! We decided to stick around for dinner and again, were pleasantly surprised. The real surprise was the tab at the end. It's worth the stop for the wine but just... More

I submitted a reservation for the evening of February 12 (our 37th wedding anniversary) through the website. I rec'd confirmation emails as well as confirmation texts as late as the actual day of the reservation. We drove over to Athens (30 miles) for our reservation only to be greeted by a closed gate and darkened property. We were confused and... More
