We added this venue to our December Central Coast tour, simply because it was listed as "dog-friendly". Was it ever! I love people from Oz, and these were no different. They seem to specialize in dessert wines, which is a great change-up from the sometime rough Pinot noirs that predominate this area. Winston loved it (Jack, not so much).

We visited Kalyra just because of Sideways Movie. We had the dessert wine tasting and the wine is definitelly not good. The place is nice although, if you are not a wine expert you will enjoy the visit like we did!

Start your Sideways Tour at Kalyra, where the movie was filmed. Fun atmosphere and staff. Beautiful view of vineyards.

This was the first winery we visited in this area. Each tasting was wonderful. None of the wines were heavy, mild pleasant flavors. Liked the so much that we joined the wine club.

It was fun seeing where Miles and Jack met Stephanie in the movie "Sideways". Enjoyed tasting the wines (except the Cab Franc, as I've never come to expect greatness from a cab franc and theirs is no different). However, I did like the Muscat. The place is worth a visit if your in the area.

This was a great winery. The guy that helped us (can't remember what they're called) was extremely knowledgable and helpful. His recommendations were spot on! I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Supercool winery, it has a very peculiar hype. Their dessert wines are fabulous, and we got the chance to buy a perfect-awesome-wonderful magnum bottle of a 1999 Pinot de Noir sparkling wine they had just disgorged (they made only 40 bottles). In addition to wines they also have gourmet chocolates and some other things. It's a pity that the person... More

Went wine tasting and sat out on the patio (had my dog with me). It was extremely hot this day so I wish they had 'misters'. Server was nice. They had a water bowl for my dog on the patio. If it was not so hot, it would have been very pleasant. Worth a visit

This was our second stop on a recent wine tasting trip. Very nice, large patio that's dog friendly. Beautiful views and helpful staff.
