We come back here each visit, very pleasant. Judy was great talking with us and providing the tasting. The tasting area is pleasant with nice seating around to enjoy. Fee for tasting. Coupons 2 for 1 on different websites..We went home with our favorite the Estate Sangiovese.

They didn't have my fave wine which was a bummer! We arrived with a tour group for tasting and lunch but appeared many other groups arrived at the same time and they seemed a bit understaffed. After a few groups left the atmosphere changed and things flowed much better. The gentlemen pouring for us was knowledgeable and fun. We will... More

I've been coming here for years and always a great time! Rick, Jennifer and their crew are making magic in the breezy hills between SoCal sprawl and the big desert beyond. They do a lot of interesting things with their wines, mostly Tuscan, Friulian and Lombard (for the wine snob that wrote that Cougar doesn't know about Italian wine, the... More

I've been a wine club member at Cougar for over 4 years. We always say we're going to switch wineries but we keep holding onto the membership. Three reasons for this - they people who work there and the winery owners are great people and they make the visit a fun experience every time. Second, they make some really good,... More

I visited here about 5 years ago, and was looking froward to going again. I was not disappointed! I wish I had made note of the name of the friendly woman who served us the wine tasting, and was so very nice to us. I believe her name began with an S. Maybe Susan? What a delightful time! I love...

You can enjoy your wine inside and still can see the valley from their huge glass window or sit outside which has nice breeze and enjoy the olive trees planted around the patio area. We are not a fun of their wines. Other wineries in the... More

Awesome friendly staff. 6/$15 tasting, with a really good selection. We walked out with two bottles after visiting their new deli in the back.
