Let's ignore that I was sick, had just popped a handful of DayQuil and had no business tasting any wine (not to mention that whole couldn't really taste anything but fire burning in my throat...) this was still a nice little stop and a $5 tasting! And not being the wine snob in this relationship, I will take my man's... More

Our first serious tasting of Californian wine. we live in France and are quite familiar with tasting in French vineyards so it was quite a different experience. We liked the wine (Italian style) and purchased several bottles to didn't need to pay the $5 tasting charge. For that we got a friendly and interesting overview of the Gianelli business and... More

Best wine in the county by far. Very good deal for $5.00 tasting. They have won many awards for there wines. I should not let out the secret because they run out of my favorites already as it is. So if you do buy there wine please don't stock up. Save some for me. 🇺🇸🍷

Great winetasting experience. Friendly staff and great wine. Only issue....we bought a bottle of the gourmet olive oil which was delicious, however high mark up. It was $5.00 cheaper per bottle at the food mart store right down the sidwalk.

What a great value!!! $5 for a tasting and refunded if you buy anything. I tasted about 10 wines. Not a loser in the bunch. It was really hard to decide what I didn't like. Very worthwhile stop in a very cute little historic town. You wont be disappointed

The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. There is a $5 fee to partake in the wine tasting but it gets waivered if you buy a bottle of wine from them. We left with a gorgeous bottle of red that I can't bear to open quite yet because I know once I do and it's gone that will be it... More

Gianelli Winery has won more gold, silver, and bronze medals in blind tasting competitions during its seven years of releasing estate grown, hand-crafted, Italian varietals than any other vineyard in California! Definitely worth a drive out of your way. Owners Ron & Lori Gianelli have created the paramount boutique vineyard with the genius of winemaker Chuck Hovey. While in Jamestown,... More

My mother-in-law the wine connoisseur knows all the great wine tasting rooms in the area, and we visited the tasting room at Thanksgiving time of 2011. Thoroughly enjoyed the wines and got a great T-shirt that I love to wear. (The mother-in-law got it for me, should have gotten her one, she's only 89 but going strong!) Have a bottle... More

Every wine they make is fabulous. I have talked to others that agree 100%. Because of Gianelli Vineyards, I now like white wine. Their Red is the best too!! Just absolutely love them so much. Great story, I took my sister-in-law, for her first time wine tasting and we started in Murphys and I let her know the itinerary before... More
