Next time you're in the Shenandoah Valley, go down Bell Rd. (off of Shenandoah Valley Rd.) a mile or so to Story Winery, at the end of the pavement. It's a small lovely rustic winery, with wonderful views of the foothills, nice picnic facilities, and very friendly folks operating the winery and pouring the wines. The pours are generous, the...

We hadn't been to Story for over 10 years. We stopped by to see how close the Sand fire had come to the property. It had come 100 yards or closer to their tasting room. While there we tried their reds! Wow! The Primitivo and Picnic Hill Zin were amazing. Pretty much everything we tried was wonderful. We joined their... More

At the end of the road, overlooking the Consumnes River valley and the surrounding foothills, the location is spectacular. The tasting room is quaint and folksy, and the hosts are always personable and welcoming. When we visited 10 years ago, we were able to watch the first crush of the season, and one of the growers invited me up into... More

The wines were enjoyable if unremarkable. They have a nice facility with an excellent view. I felt the wines were very drinkable, but nothing to make them stand out from the many good wines in the area.

Can't comment on the wines, since I don't drink. But our visit to Story was wonderful because of its location overlooking a beautiful valley, surrounded by 100-year old grape vines, twisted and gnarled into fantastic shapes. We were there before harvest, and the vines were laden with beautiful clusters of purple grapes. Friends took us just to see the setting,... More

If you enjoy quality wine and quality service, you will understand why I rated Story as average. Basically, the view and setting is fantastic and beautiful. Therefore, I increased my rating to 3 stars. Enjoy the view and the art in the tasting room. Service and wine in the tasting room is below par so head further up the road... More

Tasted all of the reds, mostly Zinfandels. None were as good as those at other wineries in the area and some had very unusual tastes, almost sweet (were not dessert wines). Have heard better things from other visitors, including some barrel tastings, so perhaps this was just a bad day. Service was brusque, not very friendly. Have heard better things... More

We had a very pleasant day tasting wine and enjoying the best views. Story is at the end of the road but we enjoyed it the most. Some of the other wine tasting locations seemed a little impersonal but not Story. All of the wines were very good but the raspberry sparkling wine was the best. Well worth the trip... More
