Love the entertainment!

I love going there when the Real Jazz Trio is playing. I like their house cabernet -- good value -- great taste. I haven't tried their food.

We stopped by this place after lunch to do some wine tasting. Little did we know they also had saki tasting. We spent about an hour there and I got a beginners education on the ingredients used to make saki, how to make saki and got to try 5 different saki's. Just as we were leaving they had a small...

First off, major kudos to the owners, Valerie and Bryan for a truly unique experience. They are always trying new wines from California. They are both very knowledgeable about the wines including food pairings. A great ambiance and just a few minutes walk to the village. A truly first class experience.

From the plentiful charcuterie board to the well rounded choices of grapes, I was not expecting to learn anything new about wine in Big Bear and I was happily mistaken. The owner and her right-hand-man both have a good knowledge of grapes and the history of how they traveled across continents. I was shocked that I liked a Rose (I'm... More

It would be nice to have the time to stop in more frequently. The original Big Bear tasting room, and still the best atmosphere. Brian and Valerie are wonderful hosts.

The owners really make this place. They go out of their way to make sure you are having a wonderful experience. They are very personable and pour some very fun, unique, tasty wine flights...they also serve Saki and craft beers. We always make it a point to stop by when we are in town.

We were in Big Bear for the weekend and after walking through all the shops on the first day my husband was getting a little worried about more shopping the following day. We found this tasting room late in the day and decided to return the following afternoon. It was wonderful! We have gone wine tasting many times and this... More
