I was just in this establishment, which looked like it was nice. I never got to try anything because when I asked the server, who admittedly was busy, " sir, when you get a moment could we get a bottle of tempernillo" he responded with " well I am busy so you'll just have to wait." There are better ways... More

This is one of the most beautiful tasting rooms in the area. It is a perfect place to relax and drink some wine next to the rushing waters of the river. Small tastes were available for 5 tastes for 5 dollars, or 3 larger flight tastes for 12 dollars. We took our flights to the covered open patio, and we... More

We had a quick glass of wine after some heavy duty outdoor activities. I really liked their non-oaked chardonnay. It had a nice sweet taste with a buttery finish. You can sit inside, on the deck, or right next to the river.

We went with a group of four and were shocked to fine that the knowledge of the staff serving the wine was very poor. They seemed interested in pouring but lack knowledge. This included the female owner who couldn't answer basic questions. The wine tasted terrible. The grounds outside by the stream was lovely. The area was very busy as... More

Always a fun place to stop in Estes Park to watch people, sit along the river and enjoy a little local wine.

We tasted about 6 types of wine, but bought a bottle anyways of the one we liked the most. I was a little disappointed in their deck they had, as it didn't give the best view of the stream. Chocolate was advertised on a sign, but the only chocolate they sold were little pieces of individually wrapped Hershey's.

Cute tasting room with lots of wines to try. The lady who helped us was nice and knowledgeable. I believe it was 5 tastes for $5. We ended up buying a bottle and taking outside to sit by the water in a private area across from the tourists. It was a beautiful day with stunning views and great wine! Can't... More

I visited with my mother on a day off from work. I had never been tasting before so I was looking for some guidance in figuring out what I liked and what I didn't. Our server never introduced herself and after we picked our wines (5 tastes for $5) she just set them down in front of us and said... More

The wines were good but the service was a little slow. After my purchase they had a swinging bench overlooking Big Thompson River and that was very relaxing.
