We stopped because they are known for their Pinot noir & Chardonnay. Definitely not disappointed. They even have a champagne flight. We joined the wine club. Bradley was awesome.

We are in the Riverbench Wine Club, so we decided to stop into the SB tasting room. It is staffed with knowledgeable & fun people. We love the Chardonnays and Pinots. There is a good seating area and bar.
