I was last at this venue in August 2013. The vintages offered on this visit were not as good as those offered in 2013. 2012 was an exceptional vintage for all varietals in pretty much the entire state. Not so the 2013s I‘ve had so...More

Visited Claiborne & Churchill winery as one of our stops on our self-guided wine tours. Impressed enough to buy two bottles of their Gewurtzraminer wines (and I very seldom buy white wine). Theirs is excellent.

Kynsi Winery suggested we come here for a dry Gewürztraminer that was worth the stop. Not exactly a fan of Gewürztraminer, I was a bit skeptical, but I have to say that after tasting it, I obviously thought it was worth buying an entire bottle...More

We had a wonderful time trying some very different wines here. We'd never had a dry riesling before, but we loved it. The winemakers daughter took her time talking to us about each of the wines, of which we enjoyed them all. Then we had...More

I first went to this tasting room a few years back. I don't drink much white wine, and stick to the pinot noirs. They have been consistently good, as they were on my recent visit. The hostess became overwhelmed with a large family group after...More
