“Lovely Winery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

We had the place to ourselves. Very good wines, just a little more per bottle than we like to spend.

“Really nice tasting room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We got a little bit of a "hookup" at this winery which is perhaps part of why I liked it so much. I also really enjoyed the wine tasting we were comped, and we got a few bottles. The tasting room is charming and there are a lot of great gifts being sold in the tasting room as well. We would go back.

“Loved the Reds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I had a different experience than the last reviewer (we didn't go at quitting time). We thought the pourer was knowledgable and helpful. We loved all the Reds. She even gave us a free tasting of the Profile wines (out of our price range). We did not do the tour. I would buy their wines again.

“Lack of customer service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We stopped at this winery toward the end of the day (4:00pm). They ignored us for quite awhile and when they finally asked what tasting we wanted we were basically told to "make it quick". They poured the various wines but made no effort to explain the wine, the vintage, etc. Our attendant poured and walked off to straighten glasses etc. very disappointing. The wine in the lower cost pour was also not great. Save your time and go to one of the many other wineries that cares about their guests!

“An old favorite that never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Lauren treated four of us to a great tasting experience on a recent Friday during crushing season. This place always hires the nicest and very knowledgable people to work in its tasting room. The wine was very good -- we took away 2 bottles of their higher end Chardonnay.
