We were staying across the street at Rancho Caymus Inn and Elizabeth Spencer was one of their wine partners, so we decided to stop in when we had some spare time. We went in without a reservation, but they fit us in to a table...More

Lovely tour of the wines they produce for about 45 minutes. Interesting conversation and great breadsticks. The starting white was delicious and the two comparison wines at the end were a delight to see the difference in cab sav from different terroirs.

Good tasting session with Nick at the very cool ES studio. We tried a selection of whites. The most curious being their Pinot blanc... We bought a small selection. My pref was the basic Chenin.

We came to Elizabeth Spencer based on some recommendations we received. My wife and I shared a tasting and it was extremely impressive. They even poured us a little extra because it was our honeymoon. I thought the quality of the wines (especially the Chardonnays)...More

Based on the pictures, sitting outside would have maybe been a better experience. There's a reason there are no interior pictures posted... bc it was a bore. We came in what seemed to be the back door maybe? The tasting room was small, and boring...More

Nice little tasting room with courtyard seating. The price is fair and the wine is good. The Reserve Chardonnay is expensive but incredible. The tasting room is open later than most so we usually make this our last stop before dinner.
