The tasting and wines did not live up to the building and grounds! The wines were average (though we all know these things are subjective), and we felt like an afterthought at our tasting. Our rep was bouncing between several groups, and we had a scheduled tasting. Seemed badly planned on their part. They had beautiful grounds though, and a great place outdoors to eat lunch.

We visited this winery on a Saturday at our drivers recommendation when all the other wineries were very busy and this one had no one there. It was just OK. Their cause is great, we just didn't care for the wine.

The tasting room at the Ehlers Estate is a wonderful open space with exposed beams and stone. We had two prior tastings that were very intimate and personallized when we got to Ehlers there was a large bar and we were sharing the attention of the server. The server as we came to find out had only been in Napa for a few months and at Ehlers an even shorter period of time. His knowledge of the wine seemed to be a little light. The wines themselves were very good but not of the same caliber of some of the other wines my wife and I tasted on the trip. However, the Ehlers Estate is a non-profit organization that uses its proceeds to fund research into ending heart disease. Because of this philanthropic mission, I would recommend that anyone who is visiting the St. Helena area should make a visit to Ehlers and pick up some of their "medicine bottles" of wine.

We fell in love (literally!) October 2010 with this place (and with each other in the Olive Garden!). The entire staff at Ehler's truly go out of their way to educate and please all five senses of their guests, new and returning (like us!). Take in the laid-back, quaint, and rustic surroundings of what they're all about...great wine, knowledgable and friendly staff (Maria, you're the best!) deep-rooted value and commitment to the environment and cardiovascular research.

....in my opinion, Ehler's is what wine country is all about.
