There is an attractive and very rural rock-strewn gravelly and rough road to the main tasting room. On the way up to the ample parking and very rustic lot, one passes by whimsically devised signboards for each planting area for all of the grape types....More

This is a small, unassuming winery that differs from the showy tasting rooms we've seen far too often. Well worth your time if you really appreciate wine. All the wines are good but the reds are exceptional. Pam was delightful and clearly proud of what...More

From Palm Desert to Warner Springs where Shadow Mt Winery is located is about 100 miles/2hrs. They do have picnic tables and a nice shaded area to sit and eat
