Not just fruit wines..some good dry wines
Sep 2021
While this winery is a bit off the beaten path, the service and surroundings are worth the trip. Samantha did the pour for our wine tasting. Loved her cheerful approach to the job. They have dry California style wines in addition to a wide variety of fruit based wines. We had a cheese/meat/fruit plate with our tasting and it was very good. We particularly like their Chardonnay. Some of the reds need a bit more work.
Looked like a place to spend some time..they have an outdoor restaurant and the grounds looked they hosted special events. We are glad we found this place.

We regret going to this winery
Jun 2021
I gave this winery a bad review on Google for poor service, forgotten orders, and pricing issues. It was our first visit.

Owner replied with an apology, thanked us for honest feedback, and offered to send us a $50 gift card to “win back our service” if we emailed them. I didn’t ask for a gift card by thought if they are willing to send us one, why not give them another try.

So, I emailed them as requested but didn’t receive a reply. I followed up with another email a week later. Now, over 4 weeks after our visit, I still haven’t received a reply or even an acknowledgement of either email.

So now, in addition to poor service, forgotten orders and pricing issues we experienced at this winery, I must add that the owner seems to be dishonest and lacks integrity.

No Integrity - do NOT support this place
Jun 2021
No integrity. If you care about supporting businesses that stand for something, do not support this winery. I booked a very special event for my dad's 70th birthday party, bringing in a private band. I was sold on having the celebration at this winery after being told by Scott we would have a great set up by the Big Red Barn if the concert was outdoors and in the Barrel Room if the weather was questionable. Sure enough, the weather forecast was looking very questionable, yet they decided to have the concert outside at a stage that wasn't even discussed as an option. I came to find out they had sold us out for a dollar with opportunities that came after we had made the initial arrangements. To make matters worse, they didn't communicate anything to me. We had family fly in from out of town for the event and it was ruined. There is much more to the story that I won't bother writing but after all of this, both the events manager and the owner refused to take any responsibility, refused to apologize and showed that this is an organization that cares about money over people. Please do not support these people that lack integrity. There are plenty of alternative options run by people with a soul.

Cedar Lake at Christmas
Dec 2020
My husband found this beautiful restaurant and treated me to a birthday dinner there. The dining room was lovely and the fireplace was delightful. Our little table for two was very romantic. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. We were given samples of wines before we chose a bottle to go with our dinner. Both of our meals were excellent and were served very quickly. We took time to enjoy a merlot brownie for dessert while we finished our wine. We then took a stroll around outside to view the lake, which had swans, and the cute little firepits that were available to rent. There are several buildings and a lake dock available to rent for different activities and events and they all looked wonderful--clean and well-maintained. My husband and I were both very pleased with the entire experience and we look forward to going back.

No Social Distancing or Masks
Oct 2020
I went this past weekend, and although I had a good time I won't be back. NO social distancing was observed at all and none of the staff was wearing any masks or face shields. Even though they claim they're taking the pandemic seriously, their negligence really speaks for itself. I felt uncomfortable the entire time with the lack of care during the pandemic. I would not recommend this place to anyone since it's evident they don't care about the well being of their customers or their employees.

Large Festival - Atrocious Service
Oct 2020 • Couples
We attended the Fall Fest on October 12th. This was an event where tickets were sold in advance and interest was very strong on Facebook so the owners definately knew the crowd expected. In 30+ years of attending festivals, concerts, shows, etc, I have never seen such a food and beverage debacle for a medium sized event. We spent 4 hours waiting in line for drinks and food! And the restroom situation was just as bad, especially for the ladies. The attached photo of the vomit covered urinal I had to use around 8pm sums up the nature of the service at Cedar Creek Cellars. While the event was fun, the service really could not have been worse.

Going downhill.

This place is seriously going downhill! Time to find another venue for events for sure. Owners are rude and uncordial, never again!

Fun Saturday night dance but expensive
Feb 2020
We attended the "Cupid Shuffle" dance party in the Barrel Room on February 15. Most all of the tables were full by 8 PM. There was no admission fee but drinks were not cheap. Of course they were selling their own wine, but I really don't have any good way to compare those prices to other places. I can, however, compare mixed drink prices as they were $10 each, which is quite a bit more than your average bar on a Saturday night. The music was modern country and the whole night had a cowboy type theme. Most people line danced to whatever song was played. It was a fun night, but for the price, I can watch people line dance and have the same amount of fun for half the $$.

Fire Pit Rental Experience
Nov 2019 • Friends
Unfortunately, the fire pit rental experience (6 people, s’mores, wine, $75) was very poor. First, we had to wait 20 minutes before our fire was lit and that was after telling two separate people and finally tracking down someone. Second, the s’mores kit (for 6 people) included 8 marshmallows, 4 graham squares, and 1 Hershey bar. So basically 2 people could have a s’mores and two people could have a single marshmallow. That’s ridiculous. Third, the girl who sat us said she would check on us but she was under 21 so she could not take our order (so what’s the point)? We come here a lot and usually enjoy ourselves, they just need to revamp this set up.
