“Goods wine - pricey”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We visited this winery on October 19th. The wine is quite good but I cannot understand why a winery charges $8 to $10. to taste and expects you to buy their wine but does not credit the tasting fee back if you make a purchase. We did not purchase for this reason and the fact that we felt this wine was over priced. We live in El Dorado County California, home of many wineries. Most do not charge a tasting fee and you can purchased excellent wine for under $25. or less a bottle. This winery charges as if they were in Napa.

“Friendly place and really good wine!!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food was really good, and the wine tasting was fantastic. I tasted 7 of their top sellers, and they even let me taste an unreleased syrah that was killer!! Super friendly and the cook even came out and spent some time with us. I plan on ordering from them online. Merlot was fantastic!! Thank you!

“Nice tasting room, decent wine”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

A really nice tasting room with interesting, different items for sale. The wines are good, though not spectacular. The staff is helpful, friendly as attentive as you want them to be. Worth a trip if you're in the area.

“Nice tasting room and tour”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I like coming here because the management is friendly, the wine is good and last time we were there, they provided a free tour. Definitely a nice touch since every other winery I've been to charges a lot for the same type of tours. Definitely worth a stop.

“Great winery and tasting room”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Wine was good, very friendly, went outside and listened to the story of how and when the winery started, the process of their wine making, and explanation of the different varietals of grapes grown in AZ. A worth while stop.
