I liked their pinot and they've got a good sparking for the money. A very good gift shop made the experience even better.

We stopped here because it was #3 on TripAdvisor. Should be #1 or 2. Gorgeous scenic property, nice wine tasting, enjoyable relaxing spot. Highly recommend.

The large tasting room is fine, but I would spend the extra dollars to upgrade your tasting to a sit down tasting in the French chateau. Wide selection of their finer wines to choose for tasting accompanied by several cheeses, dried fruit and olives. It’s...More
