Oct 2019 was our 2nd time visiting Toogood Winery as we enjoyed it so much Feb. 2019. I read other reviews that it changed hands recently, so we'll have to go again to see how it is now. When we were there we paid a reasonable fee for tasting and keeping the nice sized logo wine glass. We started in the tasting room trying various wines, visiting with the friendly staff and then made our way into the wine cave for more tasting. The cave was so cool and a nice experience. Everyone was so helpful and engaging. The many wines we got to taste were wonderful. It's a great place to bring visitors who've never experienced wine cave tasting.

First off, we have been pleased in general with the wine -- especially the Barbera, "Now and Zin" and port from the barrel. The winery recently changed hands, but they've kept the winemaker and seem committed to the same friendly, knowledgeable service we've come to expect. At busy times you start your tasting in the building outside the cave then proceed inside. The tasting menu is generous -- eight would not be unusual -- and there's no charge. For those who like distinctive labels, the artists' series is a delight. The winery is not too far from Placerville and would make a nice stop on the way to or from South Lake Tahoe from the Bay Area.

Had an awesome time at TooGood! Wine cave rocks, tasting was great, staff very personable and friendly. Went out of their way to accommodate us and said yes to our request for barrel tasting following our regular tasting. If you don’t like this place then you really need a reality check and PLEASE go somewhere else so the rest of us can enjoy it!!

Horrible customer service. Expensive as hell, owner is rude and money hungry. Save yourself the time and the trouble skip it completely. Winemaker UC Davis wrote that.

Four of us visited over the CD weekend and were first greeted by an awful, toxic smell inside the main tasting room. We then saw a residential style range sitting behind the counter that read 'End Cycle." I then realized that for some reason, staff had decided to run the self clean cycle on the range while it sat inside the room during business hours. The burn off smell was so bad, we had to step outside in order to attempt to taste any wine. Staff seemed oblivious. I paid for 4 tastings, $28.00 and then we were escorted into the man made cave. The cave was better, no toxic smells, but an array of paperwork, desk and unhappy looking staff to the right of the tasting counter. Why not block the view to what look like a makeshift office, or better yet, move it out of your customers sight? Kelly took over serving us and was friendly. Between the 4 of us, we purchased a large sum of wine that should of cleared the tasting charge. It wasn't until I reviewed our bank statement that I discovered the winery charged us for everything. I then emailed the winery and Stacey responded curtly and pretty non professionally to be honest. After giving her the info she requested, she came back and stated that our tasting charge had been credited when it had not. I emailed again asking for her to check on it, but no response. We did get the credit back, but never heard from Stacey at customer service again. To summarize, TooGood is inconsistent at best in its customer service, atmosphere, wines and welcoming appeal. Some of the wines were good, but many were not and my friend who purchased the most doesn't count, because he was definitely drunk.
