“Great Tasting and Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We had a great tasting here after we explained that we taste and spit so we don't need a big glass of wine. Were able to pay for 2 tastings and split into four. Tasted five wines and then met Mitch who had a lot of knowledge and was happy to pass it on.
Then off to lunch at restaurant - lovely food and a lovely pinot noir. Winemaker came and talked to us - again very informative. Would recommend both the tastings and the restaurant.

The winery and vineyards are outstanding and the staff delightful. We met with the winemake and had a unique tour and tasting. Good selections - Carmenere is very good.

“Plentiful tasting and lovely vineyard tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

My favorite part of the vineyard tour was the horsedrawn carriage ride across the grounds. The wines we tasted were great and the pours were plentiful! We tasted on a full stomach and were still feeling it when leaving - take a taxi!!

“Wonderful time and great family visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This was our first stop. It was great. We started with lunch at their restaurant. It was wonderful. They were very gracious and good with kids. We took a tour and we were the only ones. Our guide was very nice and good with our two boys. She even poured them water in wine glasses while we did out tasting.

“Lunch is fabulous experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My husband and I ended our trip to Chile with lunch at this winery grill. He had lamb and I had merluza with a delightful Pinot Noir. The setting was sheer perfection at the edge of the vineyard. We wish we could go there for brunch every week!
