The wine and cheese tray were delicious. It was the service that I wasn’t impressed with. The hostess didn’t explain the wines nor ask what our preference was. We were totally left on our own and the gallery wasn’t busy either. I spoke with 2...More

Loved the cherry wine here and staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the scenery from the small patio. Tucked away on a hillside with a lovely view on both sides.

Cambria hotel and suites, you will love it here. Not to many shuttles going to any vineyard. As for a dress code come as you are and no restaurant at this vineyard.
