“The worst wine I ever bought!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

We bought two cases of wine after a wine tasting. Once home the '06 Syrah had chunks of sediment in the bottle and tasted like it was going bad. The Syrah tasted cheaper than two buck chuck. On another bottle we opened, in opening the bottle, the neck of the bottle shattered where the cork was sitting. Again another first for this 40 year old. We're not going back to that crappy winery. When I called to discuss the issue, they responded to bring back their crappy wine for a credit, but I live 5 hours away...doesn't work....This was a first and last visit.

“Pleasant visit, two above average wines”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Welcoming and friendly family run winery. Paulette poured a cuvee Haileigh (Reisling/Gewurtz blend) with a great nose and flavor profile at $14 per bottle. The 2008 Barbera was another excellent offering a bright wine with cherry, tobacco, dry leaves, and a hint of smoke on the finish. I was not a fan of the Syrah offerings. Bought bottles of the cuvee Haileigh and Barbera.

“Tiny vineyard at the end of the Foxen Canyon wine trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

This was our first (of two) stops along the Foxen Canyon wine trail. While we enjoyed the wines and the small, cozy ranch atmosphere, we did not get the same full-history of the wines, etc. from the owner. Maybe she just wasn't feeling super chatty - we had to ask a lot of questions to get information, not much was volunteered.

We were here on a beautiful Thursday in April. It was not crowded at all and they had some good specials on wine. It's definitely a nice, small winery as others have said.

“Nice, small winery”

This was my first time visiting Tres Hermanas Winery. Their reds were good and tasting room employees were nice. I would definitely go back.
