My partner said he had never seen me screw my face up at wine before. These were like vinegar. Apparently they used to be good but are now awful. Avoid. Don't waste your time. There are so many good ones to go to.

This is a must stop tasting room when in central California...although I have heard that they have moved again. The wine is great, we joined the club several years ago and the tasting room in both locations we visited was awesome.

We have enjoyed going to this place in the past but stopped here yesterday. The winery room used to be very inviting - bar stools, comfortable places to sit, the ability to order appetizers with your wine tasting, and if you wanted a full experience a restaurant. Now the winery is disheveled. There is standing room only at the bar;... More

We love the tasting room here. I love how open it is and the recycled wine bottle lighting. The wines are really good (get some of their Tempranillo before it's all gone!). The service was efficient, friendly and very knowledgeable. We have been here before and were sad to see the restaurant had closed but will still keep coming back.... More

The restaurant itself has a nice set up. Based upon their wine history it has some big wine barrels serving as a "cosy" corner with a table. However the high ceiling and the open square space doesn't add up to that desired cosy, private and warm atmosphere. In favour of being "organic" they use quite some wood. However to our... More

This is a great place to visit as the wine is very good and the food is excellent and quite different. The ambience inside the tasting room is informal while the tables in the dining area are far enough apart for some privacy. The real find though is to get a group in a booth and have the menu and...

I was very disappointed to find that they no longer made ice wines, however I sampled the dessert wines that they had & found two that I bought to bring home( 4 bottles). The help were knowlegable about their wines & very helpful

The atmosphere is wonderful, but when I ordered the cheese platter is was ridiculously small for the price. Only a couple of slices that were so thin you could see through them and a dab of jelly the size of the end of your pinky. Go over to Kelly's french bakery around the corner and have a wonderful lunch and... More

Great atmosphere, great wine. The food looked really good, though we were only there for the wine. It was a really good experience.

A group of family and friends went to this wine tasting room to start a birthday celebration. We hadn't been for a few years and knew that there was a new chef. The service was very slow, although the tasting bar was not full. We opted for the current release wine tasting menu. The tasting guide did not indicate whether... More
