PistachioLand Farm Tour

27 reviews
The PistachioLand tour offers a ride on a 14 passenger electric vehicle through the pistachio orchards and vineyards. This is a working farm where pistachios and wine grapes are produced, and wine and candy is also produced on-site. Free samples of nuts and wine are available in the gift shop. Although you can walk-in to purchase a $2 ticket, booking guarantees a seat unless canceled for weather.
$5.13 per adult

Stopped out of curiously. Cute shop, plenty flavored nuts to choose from. Tasted a wine recommended to me by staff and loved it. Got a bottle to take with me. Short stop good for getting out of the car and doing a little exploring. Allow about 30 minutes.

Very small gift store with a coffee and try it counter. Off the wine bar is patio that looks out to the pistachio field is relaxing. If you can get one of the personnel to speak to you, they will run a 5 minute video describing for you that explains the beginnings of the Heart Ranch. They seem to do very good online ordering and hosting events. 30 minutes, 45 tops.

Clean, bright, all kinds of pistachios, wine and nice gift selections. Folks are always friendly. Wine tasting is offered. Wed. Evenings 6-9 live music on the Patio. It is worth the time to visit. There is a cover charge for the Wed. Evening live music.

We were here during Covid, so the tour’s weren’t available. However, we were shown a video, then Kelly (I think that was her name) took us out to the patio and told us more about the family, the growing, harvesting etc. It was our own personal tour. Everyone was wearing a mask. They have an extensive gift shop, selling their pistachios and wine, with a good selection of other items as well. We were thrilled with the customer service.
