Great wine, food and beautiful setting. Great location and place to walk around, taste the wine, which is excellent, than have a great meal and when done just walk around and visit the winery and grounds.

We had a fun tour of the cellars, plus a tasting and we purchased quite a few bottles of wine. The wine glasses are so pretty and can also be bought. We gave them out as gifts to our friends and children. Enjoy this very, very old winery and its interesting history..

After the history of the winery you meander through the cellar where the giant vats and barrels are. Then the tasting room. All in all, a pleasant hour or so. The restaurant is very good.

The oldest Winery in the USA apparently. The tasting was fun, but the wine was not really to our personal taste. Nevertheless, a fun place to visit.

There are a number of wineries in the area in Orange County, we found this one online and visited for the tour without tasting. 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.
