Awesome Small Winery
Oct 2020 • Couples
So the wife and I stumbled upon this place while looking for places off the beaten path, and while the place looked more like a residence with a barn, we found it nice and quaint. So we went for the tasting and let me tell you, the wine did not disappoint. I consider myself very picky when it comes to wine, and have even tasted some from bigger wineries that were not quite to my taste bud's liking. The first taste was filled with flavor and the rest of the wines were amazing. I loved the wine so much that I joined the Club. When I looked at the yelp reviews later and saw how bad some of them were, I was pretty shocked. The owner is definitely gruff but super likable, and more importantly, a small business owner trying to make a living. My advice, get to know the owner, don't judge a book by its cover, and enjoy the wine, it's worth it, trust me. We can't wait to come back again and again.

Unique place

The owner was a real person who works hard. Owner runs the tasting room. Experience is different than fancy places for sure... appreciate the difference.

Undrinkable wine!
Sep 2018 • Couples
We travel to California every year to taste wine. We love small vineyards and low key tasting rooms. However, this was truly awful. I am not sure how this place stays in business. The wine was undrinkable. Tasted corked. Thin, acidic, odd coloring (orangey brown with chunks of sediment and cork) and no resemblance to what wine should taste like. I can not find words to adequately describe how bad it was. Owner and tasting room smelled like smoke/cigar. Tasting room a mess. This was the worst wine we have ever tasted in California, and we’ve tasted a lot of wine here!! Save your money and go elsewhere! So many wonderful vineyards in this area. Sadly, this was not one of them.

I Didn’t Know Wine Could Be That HORRIBLE!
Sep 2018 • Couples
I have tasted wines in many wine regions around the world and without a doubt this was THE WORST WINE I’VE EVER TASTED. The colors ranged from brownish-amber to pale-reddish-orange. The flavor was insipid, weak, acidic, off, turned, funky, dirty, tasteless, and terrible. None could be called wine. I can’t describe how repulsive these wines were. I can’t imagine anyone drinking these liquid disasters!! Avoid this place. Run to ANY other winery. THESE WINES ARE NOT FIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.

Organic Yes!! Rotten taste due to nasty owner and cigar smoke
Aug 2018 • Friends
The four of us were really excited to go to a small organic winery. The property was beautiful. It had so much potential if some of the junk,clutter and dust was cleaned out of the wine tasting room.
We were so disappointed with the service
We paid for the tasting. The owner Dean was cranky, nasty and plain mean. He cursed at us. Told us "the whole thing is a pain in the "Axx Butt" and the clients are a worse pain in the Axxbutt." He smoked cigars and blew his smoke in our faces. We could not taste the wine over the cigar smoke.. We usually buy 3-4 bottles and did not buy 1 from there. When we left the owner stated if you only come to taste and are not going to buy don't come back.

WNNERY WITH LOTS OF RED WINES
Jun 2018 • Couples
We hadn't stopped at The Foot Path winery for over 10 years and decided to try it again. Nothing much has changed since the winery opened in 2005. The tasting room is in a steel barn building and nothing fancy at all. All of their wines are red and there are lots of them. We paid to taste 6 of them. Surprisingly I liked the 2011 Merlot the best and bought a bottle to take home. I usually prefer Cabernet, Zinfandel, Malbec or Pinot Noir. The winery is a family operation with no outside employees and the owner poured our wines himself. They also grow organic citrus and I bought some limes.

Organic yes! Tasty no.
Jun 2018 • Couples
We recently went to Temecula to try a few wineries. We had just been to Monte D'Oro and wanted to try something more low key and organic. To that extent we got what we wanted. I can appreciate a desire to make organic wines, but the wines were not good. Almost all were very tannic. It did make me appreciate the other winery.

I would save my tasting for another winery.

Quirky.
Mar 2018 • Couples
I can see how this bloke can rub people up the wrong way but he was ok with me as I just returned the banter. Tasting 6 wines I could only find 2 I liked and purchased. They were not great but then we are not in Côtes du Rhône are we.

Worth a visit - not really commercialized
Apr 2017
Another winery found in the off the beaten path winery trail I found on line. Great winemaker - very friendly, really interesting wines. Not a big commercialized setup - intimate and have opportunity to converse with the wine maker. More awesome wine purchases to accompany us on our trip and to take home.

Organic wines

This is really a mom and pop operation. Dean is there to serve you and offer some home spun stories about their history and holistic medicine.
The wines are varied and most of the grapes are grown on the property.
