The wines were good. The scenery and grounds were beautiful. It was a busy afternoon, however I didn't get that personal kind of tasting experience I have grown to love in this region. They poured wine with barely an explanation of what it was. I'll...More

Beautiful property and stunning views gave us such hope. I had also seen that two of their wines won awards - but alas that was as good as it got. The tasting room was noisy and not inviting but we pressed on. The young man...More

Great setting and a variety of wines make this a great place to visit. Tasting manager was a knowledgeable host and personable. Concert venue, cellars and inviting tasting room! These days, wine tasting in Amador County beats Napa and Sonoma. Wonderful wineries. Not as crowded!!!
