“Good wine personal staff!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed this small vineyard. Their pinot is delicious and the staff are eager to share the love of these delicious wines. I'd avoid all big business vineyards out there and stick to cozy places like this to get the full experience.

“small but very friendly”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Passed by while a break in a business trip to tast some californian vine.
The staff was competent and very friendly. Choice of vines was very tasteful, and delivery even to Europe is offered.

“Laugh, Learn & Sip!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Definitely a must visit! The grounds and views are beautiful! The tasting room is a bit on the small side, but the wine is worth it. We went on a Friday and the experience was well worth it. Tasting is waived with purchase and their wine is worth it! The sparkling Pinot Noir is delish! Glen was our guide in the taste room and he was a blast. We were in awe of how well he knew the land, the wine, what to pair it with. We learned and laughed for at least 30 minutes. They also sell by the glass in their outdoor sitting area!!

“The first stop up Sonoma Valley”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

We made this little place our first stop up to Sonoma Valley. It was a cute little welcoming spot. Friendly, not overly crowded and there wine was pretty good. They honored the 2 for 1 on-line tasting coupon. But the free self guided half mile walking tour was closed because they had some construction work going on on the property. They let us explore some of the vineyard anyway, so it was fun.
