This is the epitome of the small, wine focused, family ran and feel vineyard that a wine enthusiast desires. The tasting was so much fun and the grounds transport you to another place. Will return on a weekend to enjoy this one longer. The Port, and I am not a Port person, is amazing. If you can do a tasting... More

Visited this historic, family-owned winery due to its Bay Area rating (among other rave reviews) as one of the Top Wineries to explore in the Livermore wine region. Retzlaff lived up to its reputation & we thoroughly enjoyed our experience there! Reasonable tasting fee ($10) for a wide selection of excellent reds and whites. We were partial to the Chardonnay...

We had a bottle of their Savignon Blanc along with Lunch today. As the staff there described when this bottle starts warming the complex flavor just bursts out and it had the best buzz that we exeprienced in recent times. Also the house Reserve Cabernet Savignon shows the amount of expertise they have to seal in the oakey flavor of... More

If you like red blends, this winery is a must visit. If you're looking for a wine tasting experience to match the exceptional wines, this winery is a must visit. Be entertained by Michel, and you'll be happy you stop. Did I say that the blends were superb?

I arrived with my family at the winery and in a short period of time felt like family. In fact we met many family members during a visit that was far too short.Next time I will have a picnic,drink some wine and relax. I honestly did not want to leave, and knew my next winery experience would be no match.... More

Retzlaff is the first winery you'll pass as you come onto Tesla after the public library so you could miss it. However, drive down the dirt road on the left, and you'll come to a very quaint winery with excellent organic wines.

We parked our cars between the rows of grapes and proceeded down a path to the wedding setup. The very efficient staff quickly moved the chairs from the wedding seating to the reception dining tables. The catered food was delicious. A stage for dancing offered both young and old the chance to "kick up their heels" at the reception.

Loved this winery. Quaint, lovely grounds and tasting room. Connie was friendly and informative. Good, quality wines. I'm looking forward to going back again when it wasn't raining to enjoy the beautiful grounds.
