We stopped at this winery because of the reviews. Many other wineries had much more impressive grounds. Confused on why this was the #1 spot in Kenwood. Average at best, sorry just telling it like it is.More

My wife and I visited VJB's four times over ten days, finishing with a wine tasting. Each visit was welcomed by staff or family that were attentive and accommodating. And by the way, the wine done the Italian way was unique and easily drinkable.

Depending on the number of wines you sample and the amount of time you interact with everyone, I would estimate approximately one hour, maybe an hour and a half. Regardless, you will enjoy your time there.
