Our driver recommended this winery to us as we were driving between scheduled appointments. Nicole served us, and did a great job. The area was very well kept, and was gorgeous outside. The wine was very good, with a good variety of grapes compared to some of the bigger wineries.

I am a fan of smaller, family run wineries. Elizabeth and Spencer epitomizes this. The patio area is a perfect place to sample good wine. I especially liked the signature Cab.

Another wonderful Elizabeth Spencer party. This time for the release of their delicious Rose of Pinot Noir wine. All accompanied by a delicious southern feast including fried chicken and absolutely delectable shrimp and girts. Elizabeth and Spencer are always so gracious. Stop by for a tasting and join the club! We'll see you at the next party.

Our group visited Elizabeth Spencer and were treated to an outdoor experience like no other. Levi was attentive and informative and made us feel at home. The courtyard is magnificent and very welcoming. The wines were exceptional and you must try the Reisling.

Fun different tasting experience. Rather than standing at a bar, you are seated at your own table in a lovely private courtyard. Bread sticks and water aplenty! Our server was certainly the most educated of any we ran into in the valley. She brought maps (I'm talking relief maps!) and knew about French wine making vs. USA, regions, etc. But... More

We have been wine club members at Elizabeth Spencer, and visiting them, for over six years now. Our last two visits there were not enjoyable and we almost did not come this trip. We made reservations for our party and had a cottage tasting with Tracy, who was absolutely wonderful! Had we had her on our previous 2 visits I... More

I stopped by Elizabeth Spencer for a quick tasting before another reservation. It was a great tasting experience. I sat in the patio area which is beautiful. They custominzed the tasting to concentrate on whites because that is my preference. The staff was very knowlesgeable and accommodating. Very nice experience.

We bumped into someone we knew from home and they suggested Elizabeth Spencer. The staff was great and the wine was wonderful. We ended up buying a case of wine and joining the club (something we avoided at all of the large wineries we visited). This was one of our favorite places because it feels very personal.
