Wines presented on the patio while viewing the vineyards and the forest behind...blended and single vineyard wines were presented individually in separate glasses, allowing for easy comparisons and retasting...we ordered the cheese platter to augment the fine wines...winery is part of the Duckhorn family of wineries...wines and setting appealed to our genteel senses

The staff took a lot of time to discuss their wine and provide some nibbles that made some great pairings with their wine. The indoor seating area is small, but comfortable and they have a patio.

Of the three winerys we stopped at, this had the nicest grounds and deck to sample wines. My friends noted that the wines are named after ducks. I enjoyed the time we doent here gazing out at the vineyards and sampling 6 wines. My favorite, but not enough to buy some, was the Migrant.

The tasting was accompanied by a well-chosen selection of cheeses, nuts, fruit, and crackers. The reasonable pours were placed on individually printed coasters that expalined, in-depth about the wines, suggested pairings, etc.

What a wonderful wine tasting experience! We were graciously welcomed with a glass of Chardonnay and then sat at a table outside with a stunning view of the vineyards for the rest of the tasting. We were served a small plate of almonds and dried cherries to go along with the Pinot Noir tasting. It was so nice to sit,... More

What a beautiful gracious experience. I was alone and on limited on time so only tasted a couple of Pinots standing at the counter although they offered to seat me. Still it was a gorgeous setting and courteous treatment. I bought a case of wine and don't know if they charged me for the tasting but I think not.

We stopped by Goldeneye for wine and cheese. It was a fantastic experience, sitting out on their back lawn, sampling some excellent wines featuring their Pinot Noir coupled with plates of cheese and nuts you can purchase to enhance the experience. The setting is gorgeous, looking out over the vineyard, with the samples of wine brought to your table in... More

The tasting is $15 and they don't credit it if you purchase any bottles. There wasn't anyone else around for most of the time we were tasting, the fountain was going, and you had a beautiful view. It was serene and gorgeous. The wines were nice, and since they are part of a larger wine group (Duckhorn, Paraduxx, Migration, Goldeneye),... More

Doug, our host, was worth the trip. Fantastic outdoor wine tasting area. $15 to taste 6 wines, then they bring you more. Would go back any time.
