Good Wines but Not Honest Dealing With Their Club Members
Dec 2020
I previously posted a 5 Star review for this winery based on my enjoying their wines. I still like their wines but have terminated my club membership because they are not honest and up front in dealing with their club members, the very people that support them. Below is the email I sent them cancelling my membership.

"I am sending this email to explain the reason behind my cancellation even though it is quite clear you actually don’t care. We visited your winery as a result of a referral from someone at Costco and did a tasting. We enjoyed your wines very much and decided to join your club. Shortly afterwards we upgraded our membership to the 6 reds 4 times a year. For us though ,we don’t join winery wine clubs just because we like the wines. After all, for the average price of a bottle I buy from you I can purchase some equally good wines at Costco. For us it’s about having an outing, often with another couple that shares our interests in wine, where we go to the winery, do our tasting, pick up our shipment and often purchase additional bottles. We then have a picnic or possibly go to a nearby restaurant for lunch before heading home. Also often after doing a tasting I change some of the wines in the shipment being picked up.



When wineries were allowed to open again after being shut down because of the pandemic, other wineries all figured out how to do their tastings safely. For example, Boger winery has you sit at a picnic table and they provide a menu of wines available for tasting from which you can select 4. They then bring a small wooden tray to each person with 4 stemless glasses each with a generous pour so that the total amount of wine would be about equal to what was provided in a normal tasting. At Rutherford Ranch we have always made appointments for sit down tastings and continue to do so although now they are all outdoors. Other than that the tasting is as it always was. Soda Rock winery is particularly interesting because their building with a large tasting room burned to the ground 3 years ago. They then opened a tasting counter outside of an old barn that survived the fire and now with covid they are doing sit down tastings at picnic tables. As with Rutherford Ranch the tasting includes the same number of wines it has always included. At the Pacific Star winery that we happened to drive by and visited for the first time they had set up small tasting counters outside where they poured the various wines that were part of the tasting. You could then sit at a picnic table or walk around the grounds while tasting. Of course at all these wineries the server was wearing a mask and we always put our masks on when the server came to our table or when we approached the counter. These are just some examples but we recently spent a week in Napa in our 5th wheel and every winery we saw was advertising tastings. As always all the tastings were free to members and their guests.



When you reopened we were told you were trying to figure out how you would be handling tastings. In the meantime we tried to support you through what I know must be a difficult time for you. This year we purchased a total of 42 bottles of wine from you. It is now clear that you have decided you can not do the free tasting for members (by the way, your website still mentions this as a benefit of membership) safely; however you figured out you could sell a 3 glass flight of 2 ounce pours for $8 to members and do so safely. I suppose this makes financial sense to you because assuming I went there with 3 guests as you advertise in your club membership benefits you would make $32 instead of pouring about the same amount of wine for free. Clearly a money maker, but please don’t tell people that you are doing this in the name of being safe with covid. This clearly was a calculated business decision and apparently you knew you might loose some members (no one expressed any regrets about me terminating our membership) but would make more money anyway.



I am sure that like other businesses you have been financially hurt by Covid and also possibly by some smoke damage. If that is true and you had sent an email to your members being honest and up-front and letting us know that as a result you would be cancelling free tastings for a period of time, I would certainly have maintained my membership and continued to support you. At the end, it is not about the $8 per glass. It is about you being disingenuous about your reasons for doing away with the free tastings, about treating your member like fools by trying to convince them that you can not safely do a free tasting but you can safely sell them a flight. Not an honest way to do business."

While I did not expect a reply to my Email I waited several weeks before posting this review just in case they actually provided me a reasonable explanation for their less than honest behavior but no reply was forthcoming.

Come to hike and explore the old mines, spend some time in the mining buildings, view the old equipment and stop by the gift shop for some great finds. You could spend the whole day here enjoying this amazing park!

Great wines in a truly beautiful setting!
Aug 2019
Naggiar is a place where fond memories have been made over the years, and new ones continue to be made. Anytime someone says how about going to the winery, the answer is always YES! There is never a question about which winery because there is only one, Naggiar. The setting is intoxicating the wines make it better. In addition to visiting on a regular basis, we held a wedding rehearsal dinner there a few years ago that was the best. We were able to coordinate with the live band already there Friday/Saturday. The food, wine and music were a hit with all who attended.

Naggiar Vineyard
Sep 2018 • Friends
Stopped by here on Saturday afternoon with a couple of friends visiting from Chicago. We loved chatting about the wines, the vineyard and the history of the Naggiar family with our wine specialist, Mary. She was the perfect hostess for us - friendly, funny and very informative. We especially enjoyed tasting the reserve wines, which Mary generously poured for us in addition to the standard tasting selection. It was easy to find off of highway 49 and a very relaxed atmosphere.

Delicious Wines
Jul 2018 • Couples
I had bought some of their wines at Costco and enjoyed them so we decided o visit the winery and do a tasting. We tasted several estate red wines and some reserve wines and really enjoyed every one of them. I joined their wine club right away and have since enjoyed varietals and blends that are not only delicious but also different than the wines I have traditionally favored.
