The staff was GREAT.... The tour was wondering giving you a history lesson on how the winery was establish..... I wish the tour included to show you how they bottle the wine....The wine tasting very good.... For $10 was worth every penny, you even keep the pretty little glass....

The wine tasting with Mariah was great. She was informative and very helpful. We tasted 5 wines , but we were more interested in 2 other wines that were not presented. She gave us a taste of each and we settled on our purchase. Without that extra care - we may have left empty handed as we were not huge... More

Brotherhood claims to be the oldest winery in the nation. The tour is very informative and is nearly all done in their old historic aging cellars. Note that the temperature in the cellars is 55-65 degrees year around, so bring a jacket. Following the tour there was a tasting of your choice of either 5 dry or sweet wines. The... More

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..

We were looking for a nice, simple diversion. The tour was informative, not too long, not too short. 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. We had prime rib and the duck.... More

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.
