4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Yes they are the same people as jacuzzi hot tubs. Beautiful building and good Italian blends. I really liked their dolcetto. I prefer viansa on the hill above them as the have a better view, great food and wine

“A Wine Experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Add this to the must visit vineyards in Sonoma! The easy: the grounds are impecable, the service is warm and friendly, the energy is upbeat and puts you into the wine exploration mood. The better than good: the wine is very good, try the sparkling white (it is their only import & from Italy), spend time exploring the views and the courtyard is perfect to relax with a btl., don't skip the olive oil press experience!!. What's needed: more food options for a light lunch with a btl. of vino.
Will definitely be back!

“Loved the Italian ambiance, the olive oils, the wine tasting with Joe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

We began our wine country tour with a stop at Jacuzzi. We loved the feeling of being in an Italian villa! We began in the olive oil room and particularly enjoyed the pairings with the balsamic vinegars. We had excellent service from a woman whose name I can't remember...although she might be cashier #42! (I like to credit the people who helped us in my reviews...sorry if this seems too vague.) She helped us pair a jalapeno olive oil with a peach balsamic vinegar...amazing flavor. She also helped us discover a blood orange olive oil paired with a white balsamic...also amazing flavor. We shipped several bottles home along with other fun choices from the gift shop. Then we moved to the wine tasting room where the wine tasting is free. We were lucky enough to meet Joe who poured for us and helped us select wines to enjoy. We selected several bottles to purchase and were able to enjoy one while sitting aorund the wonderful fountain on the beautiful patio behind the building. We enjoyed our time here but I have to say were particularly impressed with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting.

“Olive Oil Tasting!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Sure, Jacuzzi has wine tasting just like every other vineyard in the Valley. And it's pretty good wine, in fact, with winners in both white and red.

But the real draw for us was their olive oil. We had expected to be able to taste a multitude of different olive oils, which we knew from our travels in Europe to be as nuanced as wine, but what we got was much more. We had a fantastically knowledgeable staff member bring us through how to taste the oil, how to compare the tastes, and (most importantly for me) how to use our particular tastes to make a unique blend of olive oil and various balsamic vinegars to fit any occasion. Quite an education. And there was NO pressure to buy (although we did - they ship free for purchases over about $80).

Add to that the fact that the place is like an Italian villa, complete with courtyard, fountains, and a "wine chapel" and you've got just about a perfect way to spend an afternoon.

“free but "eh"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Definitely at "you get what you pay for" experience. We stopped in hoping to pay for a nice sit-down tasting. Got a gruff "no - too many people called in sick". So, we had to settle for the tasting at the bar. It's nice, in that they offer a handful of tastes for free, but it was very odd and impersonal and was almost impossible to ask questions - and this was a Tuesday - figure weekends must be horrible. very different atmosphere than what is represented on their website. And their wines were ok at best.
