“Fun Experience and Wine Tasting”

New Clairvaux Vineyard
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Vina
Attraction details
Reviewed February 10, 2013

This winery is just outside of Corning, CA. It is definitely worth a stop. First there is the winery and vineyard. The grounds are not spectacular, but they do have an amazing history. Have your wine pourer tell you about the history. Wine tasting is $5.00 per person and pours are not particularly generous. We did not care that much for the wines, but bought a couple of bottles since the tasting cost is applied to the purchase. You can also tour the Chapter House for the monks. Well worth a visit.

This is a real gem.....you can do wine tasting, see the vineyard and most amazing watch as the munks assemble an old church piece by piece. It is an authentic European church and the stones were brought there years ago. A don't miss if you are in the area!!

We went here for mass and to see the Chapter house that is being built. Brother Peter and all the monks are so proud of their accomplishments. They make a great beer as well as their wine. The beer is Ovila and can be purchased at Sierra Nevada Brewery and Anselmo Vineyards in Inwood CA

I went to go to church only to find they sell wine, olive oil, and jams. The main building was brought stone by stone from Spain and reassembled on the grounds.

The Trappist Monks live and work here. Their wines are most excellent and the vineyard is a fascinating place to visit.
