One of a few Duckhorn properties, requires a reservation. These days I am finding I prefer reservations as more and more locations are turning into a Disney experience in that a family shows up with kids in tow in what is an adult experience. Goldeneye has some great pinots from the area. The experience is relaxed and attentive, beautiful view... More

We recently made the pilgrimage up to Philo for the opportunity to taste wine at a couple of wineries / tasting rooms. Goldeneye, being part of Duckhorn, one of our favorite wineries, was one that we decided to try. Our experience was good, but not great. We all thought that the Cheese and wine pairing that we scheduled was enjoyable,... More

We had spent the night in Mendocino and visited Anderson Valley enroute to Glen Ellen. The two excellent wineries we visited were Handley and Goldeneye. Then we stopped for sandwiches in Boonville and beer at Anderson Valley Brewing. Goldeneye has a spectacular setting and our host Doug was fantastic. There is a $15 tasting fee but it is beautifully presented... More

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

The tasting area is beautiful. Our tasting expert was knowledgeable and friendly. If you are in Valley you must stop here.

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.
