Our favorite picnic spot

Small out of the way winery. We love sitting under the oak trees with a picnic lunch overlooking the gorgeous valley. Wines are mostly red and nice

Winemaker Brian happened to be conducting a tasting (with hors d'oeuvres from Taste) the night we were there. It is lovely wine, especially the Primitivo. We ended up buying a mixed case and he brought it back that night and it was delivered to our room, so didn't go to the winery.

I have always been curious about this winery, as it was one turn earlier than my usual place in Plymouth, so one day, we turned in. What a surprise! The facilities are simple, with a cozy tasting room in the back, but the patio looks out over a beautiful valley and mountains. The wines were good, and everyone was friendly.

You go to Story for the views, picnic areas and some wines are okay. I found most of them too light for my taste.

Next time you're in the Shenandoah Valley, go down Bell Rd. (off of Shenandoah Valley Rd.) a mile or so to Story Winery, at the end of the pavement. It's a small lovely rustic winery, with wonderful views of the foothills, nice picnic facilities, and very friendly folks operating the winery and pouring the wines. The pours are generous, the...

We hadn't been to Story for over 10 years. We stopped by to see how close the Sand fire had come to the property. It had come 100 yards or closer to their tasting room. While there we tried their reds! Wow! The Primitivo and Picnic Hill Zin were amazing. Pretty much everything we tried was wonderful. We joined their... More

At the end of the road, overlooking the Consumnes River valley and the surrounding foothills, the location is spectacular. The tasting room is quaint and folksy, and the hosts are always personable and welcoming. When we visited 10 years ago, we were able to watch the first crush of the season, and one of the growers invited me up into... More

The wines were enjoyable if unremarkable. They have a nice facility with an excellent view. I felt the wines were very drinkable, but nothing to make them stand out from the many good wines in the area.

Can't comment on the wines, since I don't drink. But our visit to Story was wonderful because of its location overlooking a beautiful valley, surrounded by 100-year old grape vines, twisted and gnarled into fantastic shapes. We were there before harvest, and the vines were laden with beautiful clusters of purple grapes. Friends took us just to see the setting,... More
