I never miss taking friends or visiting relatives here, and they pretty much are all addicted. The desert wines are unequalled ANYWHERE i have been, in North America or Europe, and they have the most drinkable Cabernet i have tasted. Unpretentious to say the least, this place is very low key, and getting a tasting from Andre is about as... More

If you like visiting wineries with busloads of tourists and limos full of millenial wedding parties, keep driving by this place. This is a small, family run place that is not an over the top, extravagant, over priced tourist trap.

In his small wine tasting shed, its cordial native Dutch owner/vintner explained to us that in his vineyards he raises grapes for cabernet sauvignon, merlot, zinfandel, and chardonnay and... More

This Little Boutique Vineyard has to be experienced to be believed. If you are into traditional hoity toity wine tasting then this is certainly not the place for you. If you want some amazing desert wine, a good humored staff, and friendly dogs then this is quite a find. Be sure to try to Late Harvest Cabernet filled chocolates. Simply... More
