The wine here is unfiltered, but good. They have a huge local following that comes to refill their wine jugs in the European tradition. Knowledgeable staff. Best Sangiovase we have ever tried, try it yourself, you'll take a couple home.

Hats off to the staff and wine maker! Impressive grounds with a pond and nice picnic tables offer a sublime setting. The tasting room is well done and the wine... wow! Unique for a wine country that specializes in that concept.

No matter how many times we visit Dobra, we are greeted with enthusiasm, and of course, great wine! The winemaker often makes an appearance and instead of a "stuffy" Napa Valley wine room, you find yourself tasting and laughing on a gorgeous park like property, inside the "cave". Music and good times can be counted on! And you would be... More

The tasting room is reminiscent of a cave like structure. We had the fortunate opportunity to meet & talk with the wine maker which provided us a chance to learn a lot more about the wines & the region. He was such a gentleman; we REALLY enjoyed our chat.

This winery has a nice little cave with its wine tasting. There is a nice pond as well. Great truffle chips for sale.

This winery is off the beaten path in a small cave. The most intimate in the area. Their wines are red, all big, bold and delicious. Pourers are friendly, the owner, Milan, quite the character.

My fiance' and I have been members at Dobra for a couple of years. We fell in love with the beautiful grounds, and the staff has always been completely top notch. If you prefer a fancy tasting room where you need to hold your pinky up when you drink, move on to another winery. The name of the winery means... More

It is a bit off Steiner Rd but worth it if you like big wines. The tasting room is in a cave and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. I found most of the wines a bit oxidized, but still full of flavor.
