Beautiful winery!

I love this place! It is absolutely beautiful! You can do a tasting or buy a glass/ bottle. They have red and white wines. You can bring food too (just no outside beverages).

This was our first stop on the wine trail. Being a Californian I have a higher scale. Nice tasting room. Nice staff. Wines were Ok. Loved the flowers and butterflies

...Atmosphere free; wine good-great, reasonably priced; large variety and the views are fantastic. Had a mid-week, impromptu Birthday Celebration at Goveia tonight, so relaxing. The only disappointment, it's not Friday, I guess we''l have to go back in 2 days. Enjoy!

Just went here today. We've been multiple times and we've had a good time. The vineyard is on a hill surrounded by other little hills. The tasting room is in a little house. It's a place that makes you feel like you can exhale. The wine is good. (Not great, but easy to drink). There are multiple varieties. You can... More

We visited Gouveia at the end of last season. The vineyard is beautiful and they offer loads of picnic tables. Guests are welcomed to bring picnic baskets. The tasting room was uncomfortably loud. We could not enjoy the tasting room because it was beyond packed. Perhaps it was the day we went but it did seem like there were too... More

Had some time to enjoy a quick trip to the vinyard, overcast day and a nice breeze, you cannot go wrong anywhere you choose to sit there is an amazing view . Chocolate port, and a table wine was uncorked and enjoyed. A definite place to relax with a view and a glass of vino.

We came here with our son and his girlfriend for a wine tasting. The vineyards were set in a beautiful location and the main building was also nice. The wines were good especially the pinot grigio.staff were friendly but didn't share a lot of info about the wines. The place is definately worth a stop.

We have met so many friend's and family at Gouveia Vineyards for dinner. We all bring food and buy the wine made there, which is delicious. They bring out tables for everyone to sit outside to watch the sunset or you can sit inside. What a wonderful place to relax with family and friend's.

The staff on this night was less than pleasant..should be sent back to school for Customer Service training. The location is beautiful, wine (10 bottles purchased!) Was OK. We don't think we'll be returning to spend $$$ here anytime soon.
