This vineyard caught my husband's eye especially since it stated that it was the oldest winery in America....It was a very pretty place, music to sip your wine by and restaurant if you felt like having a meal there. The person who led our tasting was friendly and knowledgeable...wines to purchase... More

My husband and I spent the afternoon here. We did a tour and tasting for $10 each. The Riesling was our favorite. We packed a picnic lunch and purchased some individual glasses of wine and ate there on the patio where they had some live music playing too. The tour was okay they went over the families that owned the... More

Nice way to end our sightseeing day. We made it in time for the last tour of the day with Mark. Mark was informative and very pleasant. It was great see and hear about the history of this winery. We ended the tour with a tasting and we found a few wines we liked and purchased. The grounds are very... More

I have been on many winery tours in California, Europe and Texas. This one was beautifully conducted and historically relevant. The guide was so invested in the winery and made the tour and tasting very interesting and enjoyable. Definitely well worth visiting!

What a charming place! The Grand Monarque Hall with the exposed beams and rock is beautiful. We will definitely be returning for a tasting.

Really enjoyed the cellar tour and tasting. The vibe is also festive, with a live band and outdoor seating. Fun!

I do many wine tastings at a variety of wineries and was excited to try America's Oldest Winery. Upon walking into the tasting room everything seemed normal. We walked up to a tasting bar and waited for the pourer who was with a few other guests to acknowledge us. There were typical sheets where you check off the wine you... More

We were a party of 5 who took the $10 pp tour and tasting. Our guide, Suzanne, was super knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions from our large group. The tour was very interesting, and there was a nice variety during the tasting. We found the wine prices to be extremely reasonable. Well worth spending 2-3 hours here.

My 1st trip to Brotherhood was in the mid 1970's when I went there with a buddy of mine, and we both loved it and visited a few times after with some lady friends. The tours back then were a bit shorter, but still enjoyable. The wines are equal to anywhere else, and I remember buying wine directly at the... More

This is a nice winery to visit, although it seems a bit commercialized. The wines are good and reasonable. The staff is knowledgeable.
