The experience at this winery almost made me cancel my 6 wine clubs that I've had for years and re-think being a wine fan. The 'ladies' at this winery gave a whole new meaning to wine snobs. They made it very clear from the moment that we walked in that they did not want us there. They made us pre-pay for our tasting (I guess this was their policy for customers with a certain look). To top it off the employee who made us pre-pay, loudly and blatantly announced it to her co-worker.
When we tried to engage in small talk and mentioned that we had been to Napa/Sonoma several times, they made a comment along the lines of "yes, we've had a lot of people invade us that normally go to other regions". In other words, they HATE the additional business that the Sideways movie they appeared in for 2 seconds, provided them. Really?
To make matters worse, I've had grape juice that tastes better than what they pour. There wines are the worst I've ever had in my entire life. If you want a decent experience in this wine region, step on it and drive fast when you get near this winery, don't stop.
