Hunter Hill Vineyard & Winery
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We purchased a wine passport and spent the day tasting. We looked forward to tasting at Hunter Hill. However, after we worked our way to the front of a busy counter, we were told that they no longer participate. And yet they were printed in the program. The pourer seemed more than a little frustrated and we were made to feel like we had made the error. The pourer laid out what hey could do, but we were not treated the same as members at the counter. The waterfall and pond landscaping were well done. The wine was good.

We were wine tasting in the Santa Cruz mountains and some friends of ours told us we had to visit Hunter Hill. Now, realize that each experience can be different, however, we didn't have the same experience as our friends apparently had. First off, the tasting fee of $5 each is *not* applied toward a purchase as almost every other winery I have ever visited does. Also, they have a lovey picnic area--that charges $10 for the use(yes, on top of the wine tasting fee). The two women who were pouring in the tasting room were uninterested in us or the wines, they couldn't remember where they left off in our order of tasing (we were the only ones tasting, they were visiting with each other and one other person in the tasting room). When we asked a question, they didn't know the answer and a couple of times asked the other gentleman they were visiting with if he knew the answer. Very unprofessional and it turned us off from visiting again. The wines were OK.
