Visited on a recent Wednesday - it was a good time to go since there were no crowds. We did the tour and it was really interesting. It was also great since the tour goes underground and since it was in the low 90's and humid, the coolness inside was a welcome relief. It was just $10 for the tour,... More

What a great tour! For ten dollars, there was a tour of the winery, a glass and a tasting of five wines. The tour guide explained each wine and what it would be paired with. The grounds are gorgeous. There is also a discount for buying a certain amount of wine!

American wineries do not have a long history comparing with Europeans. But this place is pretty cool especially on a hot summer day , it's cool in two senses.They have extensive underground cellars and very modern and neat tasting hall. It was fun 2hrs spent.Last time we visited this winery 15 years ago , and you can see that a... More

The oldest winery in America is a must see destination for all wine lovers. The tour and tasting is excellent and is very reasonable both for only 10.00. Wines are all very nice and a beautiful facility as well. Wine shop, gift shop and nice French restaurant on the grounds. Go and enjoy it all, mid week is fine, no... More

We were driving around enjoying the beautiful weather and in one point we decided to find a place to discover so the gps showed this place. We took the tour and tasting for only just $10.00! It took like 44 minutes and it was pleasant to learn the history of this place. The wine is really good and they have... More

This place is gorgeous! It is steeped in history and for ten bucks you can get a tour and tasting. OH and before you say "Tours are boring" just stop right there. The tour gives you the history of the vineyard and goes underground to the 100 years?+ wine cellar. The tour does not go into how the wine is... More

Beautiful venue for a wedding! The "oldest" winery in the US and has so much character for a wedding backdrop. The outdoor grounds also lended itself to a beautiful outdoor ceremony. The entire staff could not be more accommodating. Check it out!

We had planned to tour Brotherhood and do the wine tasting, however we got there a little to late for the tour, so we just did the tasting. It was so nice and pleasant. We learned a lot about the wine we were tasting, and got to bring home the wine glass! We were also able to shop in the... More

Went to the Beer and Wine festival this past weekend. Nice place, but I had a totally different thought of what this festival would be like before going in. Walked up and there was a tent for the wine with about 7 or 8 stations of wine. I was expecting more I guess. The location of the tasting tent was... More

My friends and I were out and about in Orange County looking at some old homes, and I found Brotherhood on a random Google search for local wineries. A quick 20 minute drive down 208 and we were there. It was kind of late in the day...close to 4pm I think, and we had missed the last tour by a... More
