Very exciting place when you can go into a cave that stores the barrels and then sit in a room that makes you feel like a king or queen! We did the tour to get this! Plus sampled 6 wines during. Very knowledgeable people too.

We met friends here as it was central to meet. They only make Pinot and Chardonnay, as most in that region do. $20 tasting fee for 4 light pours. We shared, and that was the right thing. The wines are very light in character, and...More

Our tour started in the entry, and took us through the work room to the caves, and outside. Our hostess was extremely friendly. It was fun to see a small winery that does their own growing, crushing and bottling. The grounds are beautiful. Would like...More

Our hostess brought us around the chardonnay field under the hot sun and she was indeed pleasant. The wine that we were tasting were ok. I am sure there will be people who are avid fans of these.

This place is one of the few gems that remain in Sonoma County. It is easy to miss as it's location is at an intersection of a major highway. At first, I didn't think much of the place aside from having a nice scenery and...More

We enjoyed a very good wine tasting. The hostess was friendly and knowledgeable. We were fortunate to be able to spend time with the owner to learn an in depth history of the winery and his passion for wine. High quality product.

A very nice winery on a beautiful, picaresque piece of land. The tour was informative but rushed. The wines were pricey for what they were.

We were on a tour (just 4 or us) and the operator just took us there. But this was in January, so not crowded either. A call ahead is probably smart if you want to take the tour, which was interesting and educational. And... More
