My girlfriend and I were in town for the annual wine festival. We decided to take our Sunday to see some of the vinyards and wineries. We did exactly what I would advise anyone against; we made this our last stop. The visit is personal and more informative than I could ever imagine. I know so much more about wine... More

As others have stated, try to start your wine tastings here. Alex, who is also a certified wine master, took us on a grand tour of the offerings and I can guarantee you will learn a lot. We have done many tastings in Sonoma and Napa Valleys in California and there were things we had no idea about! You wont... More

My son and I had the privilege of meeting Alex today and enjoying a tour of the impressive winery and other facilities. Alex totally wowed me with his knowledge and enthusiasm. This tour was especially meaningful to me because my daughter and Kristen were friends and classmates at GJHS and I already knew what a special couple she and Ron... More

My wife and I were looking to pick up some wine and Varaison was recommended to us. We stopped in and after a bit of confusion on which building to go in we were welcomed into this gorgeous Victorian home by the wine maker. He treated us to a fantastic sampling teaching several things about how to taste wines. When... More

When we approached this place, the family was very welcoming and not just that, they let my husband an I learn how wine should be sipped (reds vs. whites). They not only are loving, kind, smart, and knowledgeable... They had us laughing so hard my sides hurt! Very beautiful old home they have fixed and also live in. My husband... More

We must have spent an hour on our first day talking to Kristen and we were so glad that we did. She told us how to taste wines most effectively and what to look for in a good bottle. It was fascinating and definitely made tasting at the other wineries more fun for us. A great education and delicious wines.... More

I learned more about wine and tasting in this visit than in all other winery visits combined! The wines are quality and the knowledge priceless.

We had an amazing time! Alex was incredibly knowledgeable and fun! He took a lot of time explaining the wine and the process of making it and drinking it. It was by far the best winery we visited.

Visited the tasting room at Varaison which is a totally different experience. The owner's wife does a presentation on not only the wines but the tasting process to enhance your enjoyment of the wines. The owner is an environmental engineer by trade but went back to school to get a degree in wine growing and making. Small winery in a... More
