We made an appointment based on Yelp reviews and are so glad we did! We were greeted by the owner John Viszlay and he guided us through a tasting of his wines - some of which are gold medal winners in the San Francisco Chronicle judging. He also took us into his vineyard and explained what we were seeing in the early spring growth. It was an interesting, informative, delightful time. Loved the wines and ordered a case - they came today and can't wait to try one!

We were introduced to Vislay by way of a segway tour - it was our first stop and by far the BEST stop! Owner John Vislay poured for us, sat with us, and shared his story. He obviously loves being a winemaker, and is very good at it! Abby came by to say hi to us as well - she's equally delightful.
I frequently go wine tasting but have never been compelled to join a wine club until I experienced Vislay. Because I live in Georgia and can't just drop in to pick up a bottle, it gives me a great way to keep stock of the wines I enjoy so much.
Stop by - you won't be disappointed!

Found this family owned winery in our wine pass from our inn. The daughter Abby poured for us. She had such a wonderful depth of knowledge of not only their vineyards and wines but also the region. She gave us great tasting tips also! For only 6 years in production they already have many medal winning wines. Add them to your next wine tour!

Quick change to our itinerary landed us at Viszlay, which couldn't have been a better choice for the last stop on our day of tastings. The relaxing atmosphere, John's hospitality and of course some outstanding wines made for a perfect visit. John and his daughter were so fun and down-to-Earth, we loved having our questions answered by the actual winemaker himself - gives you a new appreciation for their commitment to the craft. Five Vines was our favorite! Great winery, definitely worth a visit!

Stopped here on our wine tour and was not disappointed. We were Lucky enough to have John Viszlay (the owner) as our host. What great fun we had paired with excellent wines.. Ill make sure this is on all my friends lists. Its a must stop on a tour or for just an afternoon stop.
