We visited Wild Horse as part of an organised tour. It's a pretty place will a well run tasting room, it has a friendly feel for a large winery. Enjoyed it and would visit again, but don't go expecting a family run type of place.

2012 Chardonnay - Flavors experienced were green apple, citrus, and smooth with a touch of sourness. Possible food pairings would be aged cheese, citrus-marinated chicken, and grilled salmon. Thumbs up! 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon - Aromatic experienced was red berries. The Cabernet was very subtle with no particular highlights in flavor. Possible food pairings would be steak or pasta with marinara... More

The setting was very pretty, the staff was friendly and we enjoyed their wines. It was a nice place to visit in a rustic area near the B & B where we stayed. It's a very well-kept facility.

This is a small winery and it was very quiet when we visited. There were only two other patrons there when we were tasting. The wine tasting room doesn't have as much in the way of a gift shop as some of the other, bigger wineries but the friendly, personalized attention and the quality wines sold at a reasonable price...

Granted, we should've known better than to actually visit the winery, but we thought that maybe the estate wines would be better than what we'd bought at home. Not true. The wines were very acidic with little to no flavor.

We visited the Wild Horse Winery on the recommendation of the B&B we were staying at. The wines were excellent and we brought some bottles back home with us.

This is an excellent winery whose wines (some of them) can be bought retail. But the really good wines are their "unbridled" (or estate) wines which are not available in many places. Try them. Uniformly excellent. I loved the Bien Nacido Pinot Noir and the first vintage Malbec.

Maybe it was the fact that I was the only patron in the tasting room. Maybe it was the fact that the employee pouring the wines was struggling to stay awake. I was not really impressed. I liked the wines okay. I tried to pull some interesting information from the employee regarding their products, but to no avail. Maybe he... More
