For most of it's history, Guglielmo was a producer of inexpensive bulk wines--"Dago Red" and "Dago White", if you will. None of it was much good except for those whose major criterion in buying wine is low cost--the type who buy the cheap foreign stuff at Cost Plus and insist it's good.
Some years ago they embarked on a program to improve quality. They now have a series of wines called "Tre" which are under $10.00 per 750ml. There's a market for that, just not to me. It's commercially acceptable, but no more. Their Estate wines are of better quality. Not Napa Valley or Paso Robles quality; but at around $20.00 per 750 ml. all six reds that I tasted were well worth the price. Tasting fee is a mere $5.00, and between reds and whites there are over a dozen offerings.
I was there on a Sunday. The place was packed for a bit with a tour group, but they left quickly. That gave me time to speak with Walt and Larry, the two "geezers" who pour the reds. Walt volunteers his time. Larry is paid. Both have been collecting Social Security for a while, and both are very engaging guys. The ladies who poured the whites were no spring chickens either, and not so freindly either. Guess you must be at or close to retirement to pour there.
The tasting room is also a shop, filled with kitschy stuff. Cheese is available for purchae. There is seating outside if you want to buy a bottle and picnic.
