I enjoyed the history, my wife wanted to learn about wine which she feels that she did not. There is a restaurant, Cafe Vinum, on the winery property which is very cute and the food was... More

Beautiful location. Very knowledgeable tour guide. Best of all, Great wine hard cider and even some moonshine. Reasonable prices for the bottles. We visited during a snowstorm, I am hoping to go again in better weather to really enjoy the surroundings.

My husband and I did the tour and tasting at Brotherhood. Our tour guide was good and entertaining while keeping it just long enough. The grounds and story behind the winery are interesting. The tasting after offered 5 different options. The whole thing lasted about 1.5 hours. Recommended.

I was here for my Cousin's wedding and it was beautiful! The wine was great and I'm kicking myself for not doing a tour. Their pictures were amazing they were even allowed in the cellar with the big barrels for truely unique photos.

The experience was really nice as this was my very first time at a winery , and it so happens to be America's oldest winery at that.The bottle wines was very reasonable as we brought several bottles back, and the taste was not bad at all would definitely recommend as a place to visit.

The oldest winery in America - a step back in history. Not to mention their wine is simply amazing! Loved the tour and the wine tasting. Their customer service was excellent at both the tasting and their Cafe. The food at the cafe was incredibly high quality and delicious

No, you are not getting fine wines, but you do get good wines at a reasonable price. Some, like the Holiday, the Sangria and the May wines, are just fun things to drink at a picnic or a Christmas party. Since they were bought by a Chilean owner they now stock quite a few wines from Chile. Some of them... More
