The was so much fun. We did the VIP tasting. The cheese and fruit plate was excellent and paired so well with the different wines. Our "server", I'm not sure if he is a sommelier, was very knowledgeable about the wines and the pairings. We bought six bottles and should have bought more, but we were so full and happy... More

Very nice tasting room and gift shop. I unfortunately missed the tours but got to sample some of the wines. The tasting is free which is unheard of to me! I tried several before making up my mind. I purchased 2 bottle and they do offer military discount on all except the reserve wines. It is a jaunt from Colorado... More

The Abbey has been closed for years and the winery is private and uses the name only. The grapes are all imported from California and the wine is made in a warehouse behind the building. Most of the wines were decent but at $25 per bottle they were subpar with most wines that price at Costco. Sorry.

It does have great wine, Olive oil and balsamic vinegar. But is also a great place for a picnic. Large area were kids can run after being cooped up in a car clean picnic tables and restrooms. We stopped and picked up sandwiches and enjoyed the cool Colorado air.

Booked the VIP Wine Tasting for my husband and I; we thoroughly enjoyed it! Private service on the patio overlooking the vineyard. Delicious wines and cheese, crackers, fruit tray.

My family doesn't drink wine, so we went just to see the Abbey. Lots of history there. A nice man inside gave us a tour around the Abbey and explained all the history to us. It was really interesting! We ended up there almost an hour learning about everything!
