Felt incredibly disrespected. Absolute worst service of my life. Wouldn’t recommend to my worst enemy.

Beautiful property. We had tasting at the lake patio and it was very beautiful and hostess Clare was very knowledgeable. This is NOT DOG Friendly as they have their own dogs. There are peacocks, chickens etch. The wine was quite good, though expensive.but not as bad as NAPA prices.

The setting at Pence is gorgeous, not just in a tasting room, but out in the vineyard, alongside a lake, on a dock, beach or gazebo - so many options . Your host pours just for you, no other customers. They all are so well informed on the wines and property. A good, safe visit in COVID times, and even better when it's over!

These are mainly pinot noir wines, but even if that's not your favorite style, the experience is well worth it!

Stopped here for a private tasting. The wines were unexpectedly good. If you didn’t know, you woul not expect wineries in this area. It turns out to have a very good micro climate that produces very nice wines. Pence (not to be confused with a VP) offers a nice selection including an excellent Pinot.

Our wine tour group of nine experienced an amazing tasting and tour in their gazebo facilitated by Noli (Sp?). Her enthusiasm was off the charts and her presentation was insightful and educational. The unofficial tour to the top of the property was very scenic. The wines were superb!! The wine tour group bought a bunch of their wines.

I’ll be back on my next tour. Thank you Noli!

We came here on an organized tour. The bartender was super-knowledgeable and friendly. Pours were generous.

We tasted 2 Pinot Noirs, 1 Syrah, 1 Chardonnay and 1 Rose. Funny, I really don't like Rose, but I found theirs to be delicious, refreshing and memorable. So, I bought 2 bottles.

TIP: Don't forget to stop for some fun photo opps, like with the horned cow (bull?) near the front entrance.

We had a wonderful private wine tasting - Lenora was lovely and shared her knowledge and lovely personality. The wines were excellent and the drive around the property on the Gator fun despite the cold wind!

I would recommend this to anyone that wants a real wine tasting experience. You have to make a appointment to visit but so worth it.

We were told this was a must stop for our trip to the area. We tried to set up an appointment in the morning (you must make one to get in) but called too early. We were driving by and decided to stop and see if we could get in on a whim and to just see the location. Luck was with us! The wines, the view, the tour made this perhaps our favorite stop on the tour. It is a must try.
