Delicious, high-quality wines, along with a beautiful and well-stacked showroom. Touring the winery is a fun experience. I just had to have their wine with when I proposed in California. She said yes!

Came in right as a tour bus was just finishing up, but employees took time to help us do a wine tasting. We asked if they did tours and an employee took us on a tour. Very friendly and very interesting tour.

Had to stop in and take a break from driving. The wife is primarily a dry wine drinker however there was something for everyone there. Excellent selection of wines as well as snacks with a brewery next door.

Go to the website and they have a "where to buy" locator to determine if this wine is sold near you. They do ship wines, but depending on your state's laws!

We do not have any B&B's on-site, but there is one in the area. The Painted Lady. We do complimentary tastings all year round, every day that we are open!
