Some of the wines are good, but overpriced. The servers always seem like they are doing you a big favor pouring their wine. Tasting fee is $12, Nicely landscaped grounds. Nice tasting room.

Very nice property with a great picnic area. Wine was average and had a good chocolate pairing with their wine. Very busy place but would go back with friends.

We stop by when we are in the area to get some of their Riesling, Ashley Chardonnay, and Port. Today they just happened to have their 2011 Riesling on sale for $99 a case and I couldn't resist.

The grounds that the winery/tasting room are on, are large & impressive. We enjoyed learning the history of the owner. What made it was the lady that we had for our tasting. She was so bubbly & so entertaining, how would you not sign up for the wine club- so we had to. What a fun place & the wines... More

We were hesitant to stop in after tasting in several more intimate tarting rooms but glad we did. Wish I could remember our server's name. She was so welcoming and bubbly and sincere about it. We stopped by the first counter nearest the front door. It was busy despite being a Tuesday, albeit the day before New Years Eve. It... More

Thank you James for those two wine glasses plus we ended up doing double tastings and paid nada since I bought 6 wines...

We were not impressed during our first visit here last year, because of the noisy crowds, but because we were doing a "canine wine tour" this month, we decided to return, because the winery is dog-friendly. It was great this time. The dogs (3) almost outnumbered the tasters (4). Staff were friendly, the Christmas decor was beautiful, and the Dry... More

Well... Wine tasting costs 12$, the ladies managing the wine tasting are very nice but not wine experts at all, they even serve two different red wines in the same glass. I finally bought the best bottle - a pinot noir costing 56$ - which is not worth at all. California still far away from France in terms of wine... More

A beautiful winery and very nice landscaping and the wine tasting was very good. The people working at the winery were very friendly and made you feel right at home, the next time we are in the area we will be going back to try some nmore great wines.

Far from the crowded wineries of the north, this is a great place to go and buy a bottle or two and enjoy it outside. We were lucky enough to go on a Saturday when they had a band playing and a gourmet food truck. Sure beats the crowded north and the wines were excellent.
