Heller Estate has now become Maasa Estate. My three siblings and I brought our father here after we had seen croquet set up on the front lawn. When the owners heard that my father had just celebrated his 96th birthday, they brought out complementary champagne. We played a hilarious game of croquet according to "gopher rules" i.e. liberally interpreting rules to avoid the holes left by gophers. The owners brought wine to taste out to the croquet court and we enjoyed delicious snacks ordered from the menu. Full meals were available, too. The wait staff were very attentive to our needs. There was a nice wind protected area for diners and kids could run around on the lawn. This is a family-friendly outing—for young and very old.

We are into organic food and wine. This winery has superb whites especially the Chenin Blanc. The Cabernet is also excellent and great aging potential.
This winery is into organic wines and it really shows in there flavors. The taste is incredible. You must be a wine connoisseur to appreciate these wonderful wines!!

Great little place with some old wines, you can get bottles from the 80s and 90s from the library collection just released. The Reds are all very good, they have Pinot, a Meritage blend that is great, drinkable now. The Merlot is also quite nice.

Carmel Valley is magical in and of itself, but the boutique, yet homey, Heller Estate is great. The wines are fantastic, location great, and people very friendly.

This winery's tasting room is a very relaxing experience. The staff make you feel at home, and you can even bring food here while you taste or have a picnic!

Heller Estates has a wide range of wines and all of them are made from ORGANIC GRAPES!!!

Highly recommended!!!

Cheers!

Heller was far and away our favorite stop among the assorted tasting rooms in Carmel Valley Village. The staff is very friendly, engaging, and genuinely enjoyed chatting. The wines were very good, each of us found a favorite or two, and we feel good supporting the organic grape trend.

We sought it out because Heller is our daughter's married name. Thought it would be neat to get a bottle of wine with their name on the label. Turned out to be a fabulous award winning organic vineyard. Just released their 2014 Pinot Noir, absolute finest Pinot Noir to ever test my palette! If you are a wine connoisseur join their wine club. They also have exquisite sculptures by none other than Mrs. Heller.

We have stopped in at Heller on every trip to this region for 20 years or so. The wines and the people never fail to provide the best kind of wine tasting experience. What would that be? Excellent wines of course. Balanced and carefully crafted, and made with respect for the grape and the environment. The varietals here are all estate grown. The Cabernet Franc is especially good, and the Chenin Blanc a wonderful surprise. (There are two versions, one very dry and the other slightly less so.) In addition to the wine, an intimate tasting room and hosts with a wealth of knowledge and a genuine wish for tasters to enjoy the wines. Maps come out, wines not on the daily list occasionally are open. You learn about Heller (of course), but also other wineries in the Monterrey region. For today, thanks especially to Tammy.

We have been wine club members of Heller for 6 years. We LOVE their wines! All the reds, especially the Malbec and Pinor Noir, are extremely tasty. We have purchased cases of the Chenin Blanc as our favorite white. We have done their annual grape stomp, which is so much fun!! Also their annual ladybug release has been a notable experience. But, their wines are by far the best we have ever had!! Plus, Constance and Alessandra, are such pluses in the tasting room!
