We stopped here on our wine tour. There's not a gorgeous view like other wineries but the taste definitely makes up for it. Blueberry apple cider is amazing! Also try cooper!

Beautiful vineyard, great service, and so dog friendly. They even brought a bowl of water for our dog. We will definitely be back.

I almost don't want to write this review because the place might get too crowded !! - we love the friendly staff, the views and especially the wine (wish they still had the dogs all the time....)

Love the atmosphere at this winery. It was this first time we've visited and being a Sunday afternoon, it was very busy. Because it was so busy the servers did not really take the time to engage in conversation and we did not get much information about the winery, the wines, or the wine club (which I only heard about...

As the title says, this is our favorite winery on the peninsula. This time we brought our 10 month old son. Don't judge. We were glad we did though. The people were so friendly and loved making him smile and enjoy it there. Their wine is amazing. We brought home some Chardonnay and Peach cider. We were disappointed though to... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the tasting room in June. We came on a weekday so the crowds were very thin. We were never rushed, enjoying our conversation with Justin as he explained the history of the vineyard and educated us on some of the wines we weren't familiar with. We did two tastings, sharing both.... More

Brix Bubbly is a favorite! Even got a treat for my dog while there. Looking forward to returning soon and spending more time there.

My husband and I went on a wine tasting tour here and this winery was by far our favorite! We are not wine experts and the staff was excellent at helping us choose the best wines for our tastes. The Riesling Late Harvest was our favorite! Nice and smooth, no bitterness. Just delicious! The patio is beautiful, bought a glass... More

My wife and I visited in winter 2010 and enjoyed it so much we took a group of 7 back last week - everyone loved it and bought something! Despite having a full tasting room, their excellent, knowledgeable staff provide a very personal, friendly, and inviting tasting experience for the entire group be they a novice or experienced wine lover....
