Nice looking place on top of this hill overlooking the valley. Wine tasting room, and a stroll around the property. Nice visit.

If you're looking for something different to do try these guys. Watch their web site for special events where you can eat there or bring your own food. Bring chairs because sometimes they run out fast. Great place with a great view and good music.More

Thanks for your endorsement, Gary! When summer concerts end, we move the live music into the Tasting Room -- no cover! (Fridays and most Saturdays in October, Fridays only in Nov-Dec, 5:30-7:30). The Estate is open until 8pm, and the view of sparkling lights looking...More

The view from Arbor Crest is amazing and worth the short drive up the hill. The grounds are lovely and we were sorry we didn't have another day to stay for the summer concert. The wine tasting was quite good and the staff friendly.

Arbor Crest has unbelievable views, very nice wines, and really great events ranging from two concerts per week in the summer to very good arts and crafts events. We make it a point to visit 2 or 3 times each summer.
