Sunstone offers great wines for tasting. They have a very nice tasting room, and their staff knows their wines. It is also nice to sit outside and relax here, or to walk around inside and outside. We were happily surprised to find the olive oil and vinerar tastings as well, they were excellent and just had to get one! This... More

If your are not a Merlot drinker this will change your mind. Many of the others wines offered on the tasting were excellent. The Reserve Merlot is by far the best I have had. Benn up and down the west coast from CA to Or and tasted many wines. We bought the Merlot and enjoyed it before we left the... More

Beautiful property!!!! Feeling like I'm in Tuscany. Take a moment to walk around and smell the rosemary. Ask for Sammi, she's great.

We finally visited Sunstone Winery after reading tons of reviews and seeing the most beautiful photos from weekend getaways and weddings... and it did not disappoint! You're suddenly transported to Europe with the beautiful architecture and olive trees everywhere. And with a good glass of wine in hand, what more could you want? We even became members we loved the... More

This winery is great. It has exceptionally nice grounds and a great wine tasting room. If you want a great place for a wedding or other event - this is a good choice. The wine was good and the staff was extremely friendly. We will definitely return to Sunstone.

We were coming to the end of our road trip and James had been saving this one up as he had had such a great experience on a previous visit. The greeting was fine but identical to the next party coming in which was the first sign. There was then an issue in regard to membership which was a genuine... More

I came here for a wedding and was blown away by this place. I spent a lot of time at the villa due to the fact I was part of the wedding, and I really couldn't get over how nice it all was. The rooms are all huge and look amazing with the stone, and there are several major balcony/patios... More

What a gorgeous, elegant establishment at Sunstone Vineyards and Winery! Vineyards surround the grounds, very magnificently looking, as you walk up to the very large, stone, romantic winery room. The outside patio area is also quite large (everything is large here!) and is used often for large gatherings, parties, weddings, etc. Inside the tasting room is also magnificent. Romantic. Plenty...
