We have been visiting and buying wine here since the 1980s. Good product. Nice owner who now has sons in the business. Today we enjoyed and purchased petit verdict, red blends and petit sirah. We will be back.

Fantastic. Sangiovese and the "Rattlesnake Red". Very friendly staff. You can't ask for a better experience. Ask them to give you a suggestion for the next vineyards to stop at.

Paul Portteus and his disciples have pretty much perfected the water into wine miracle. He makes many varieties of red wine which are among the best in the entire Yakiima Valley. Of particular interest are any designated as "old vine"; they are uniformly spectacular.

Great people running the place, tons of different wines to try. Sometimes they are great, other times not so much.
