“Friendly and free”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This winery was a pleasant experience after paying $15 and more for wine tasting in the Napa Valley. The staff was friendly and did not pressure you to buy any wine. The wine was also good and reasonably priced.

“Free Tastings”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Best part of this winery is the vast amount of free tastings they offer. The free tasting included 6 wines. The tasting location is odd because it is in the heart of downtown San Jose, but convenient to say the least. It is a small venue but never too crowded. Pricing for the wine is good as well.

“Wine!!!!!!”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

First things first they have complimentary wine tasting. They have a friendly staff to help guide you through the tasting. The wines are very good and reasonably priced. Most come from the Paso Robles region which I love.
