Friendly but busy staff. Most wines not to our taste- with the exception of the Fat Boy Zin. Apparently has a rep as a great party place

Very Millennial type tasting area. More casual than most. Worth the visit just to view the memorabilia. Nice gift center especially if you like Tommy Bahama gear.

We’re members at Tobin James and always stop by to try new wines and catch up on what’s happening at the winery. Super friendly people, laid back vibe. Consistently good wines across multiple varietals. Recommend you stop by to try when in town.

Tobin James is always a fun stop. They have a variety of wines including a Tempranillo Rose and a range of price points. All the staff were engaging and helpful. Tasting was complimentary.
