Small place but pleasant. The gentleman working was laid back - maybe a little too much. He did explain the product but I don't think it mattered whether we were there or not. I think it was getting close to closing time - nobody else was there. Sat outside on the bench and tasted our wine. It was very peaceful.

A great place to start a day of touring wineries. Light, tasty wines served in a comfortable environment. There were several families outback picnicking and tasting/sampling the Buttonwood wines. Laid back and restful. great staff.

They were very welcoming. Encouraged us to view the garden, working ranch and vineyards. The tasting was average. I enjoy their rose. It's a very beautiful set-up, welcoming, unpretentious and the sommeliers are informative and ready to answer your questions.

We stopped by for some wine and the place was very charming, farm style and a bit of english cottage in back. The atmosphere was good here except for a moldy wet sponge smell in the tasting room. The first of our tastings was done outside and the last was inside. Outside was much better. Seemed the college kids serving... More

My husband and I visited Buttonwood for the first time after reading about the winery and farm. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about their wines and the wine making process. The tasting costs $10 for 7 wines (including the glass) and is a very good value these days. (Personally, I'm delighted that wineries charge for tastings--it prevents many from... More

They also sell salsa and bbq sauce. The hostess with the mostess here is helpful and informative. A lovely mature woman that is a great pleasure to talk too. Got to... More

Really nice grounds and garden. The wines were not to my taste, and quite fraqnkly, not to anyone in our party. I will leave it at that.

Walked in and the first words were 'Its $10 per tasting-how many' and 'pay now!'. Horrible wines that are not rated. They are uninterested and pushing people through. Little conversation about the wines and they judge people by telling them that you start with the whites and progress to the reds-most people (at least those who have been to many... More
