“Hidden Gem! Incredible Winery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2015

My wife and I just came across this winery on a whim. So glad we found it. The grounds are beautiful, the tasting experience even better. We are laid back and not by any means wine experts, but James was the perfect host at the tasting. He explained the wines in simple terms, had great conversation with us and gave no pressure to buy. Of course though we had such a great experience that we did purchase some wine to take home. The tasting area was in the outdoors and had live music playing . They even have their own farm to table restaurant on site again with outdoor seating. If looking for an all around great and casual winery experience and not sure where to go, I highly recommend this winery. You will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic wines served by knowledgeable reps!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2015

Will our server was both knowledgeable and practical. Had two favorite Pinots one he recommended to serve at parties to friends the other for myself accompanied by a box of chocolate and watching Netflix. Worth the stop.

“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2015

We called by chance and enquired if they had a table, and fortunately they had one at 8pm which was just enough time to go back and change. So pleased we did as this turned out to be a very special culinary delight.
The waitress was very informative not just regarding the food but matched the wine perfectly with our food choice.
My main course of smoked hanged steak was exceptional.
We have had some very good meals whilst on holiday, but the memories of this meal will last for a very long time

“Beautiful and welcomming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2015

We ended up at the Russian River Vineyard on our winetasting day in the Sonoma county… after arriving for a late lunch, we just did not feel like moving on. When we came to the Corks Restaurant, the waitress recommended their burger, and we did not regret following her advice. The burger was simply excellent, but the best part was the fries drizzled with truffle oil. After dinner, we went on wine-tasting outdoors enjoying the nice garden, vineyards and the strange copy of an old brewery house. The wines were truly excellent, and the experience became even nicer when a guitar player showed up, plugged in and started playing even though we were just a few people there. As the evening customers started coming in, it was time for us to leave with a nice memory of nice, food, wine and welcoming staff. The estate has a personal atmosphere and the staff were proud to be part of the local family bringing the traditions on further.
