Did a taster session of six wines. Being on an organised tour we were presented with our glasses. Did not particularly like any of the wines tasted here and as there were four of us managed to get a taste of at least twelve. It was very busy, more or less like a busy wine bar in fact. We preferred... More

I love Becker Vineyards and have become a member there. We were there for their Blues and Barbeque event. The music was wonderful. The surroundings are beautiful and the wine was fantastic! It has lavender fields on the premises also, if you want to buy some to take home. There was seating in the grass on lovely chairs (some rocking)... More

We took a big picnic lunch to Becker over Spring Break. This is one of the most pleasant places to hang out. Buy a couple of cold bottles of white wines and relax. We played bocce; the kids kicked a soccer ball and we just drank some good vino and ate lunch. Fun spot.

We visited Becker Vineyards on a recent trip with Cellar Rat Wine Tours. Overall, Becker was my least favorite of the 3 wineries we visited, but it was still good. They let us keep the glasses we used for the tasting (others should have done this too) however did not wash them before boxing them up (rather nasty). A small... More

This was our first winery stop - not just because it was a winery, but also to investigate their lavenders offerings. The wines were pleasant, but I'm a sweet wine fan and that was not their specialty. The selection of lavender products was FANTASTIC - that's where my money was spent, both for souvenirs and for myself. The staff was... More

My husband and i went to Becker Winery as part of a tour. We enjoyed it very much. We did the wine tasting and loved the wine so we bought several bottles home with us. The grounds were very nice and we walked around and had a very relaxing afternoon.

The Malbec is a must try. Do the tour too. The tastings are worth the money. The Cab is good too. We had fun just sitting, tasting and people watching! Valentine weekend was very busy.

We really enjoyed the tasting and the grounds. There was a merlot and chocolate pairing event the day we went and that was fun. The specialty items they sell are of very good quality. We bought some homemade lavender soaps and the are exquisite! Look forward to visiting again soon

Maybe my expectations were too high but I was somewhat disappointed with Becker. The staff seemed hurried and pretentious. The grounds are stunning but I left wanting for a better experience.
