“The barn is great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Had a great wine tasting. The owners are wonderful. The rose is unbelieveable. The barn is really nicely redone.

“Amazing Port”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Having heard about their port from our wine tour host, we visited Karlo Estates on our own the following day. Our host, who was suffering from a day old bee sting, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable, easy to speak with and very capably represented the vineyard. The barn was remarkable and the grounds beautiful. The port, as with their other wines, was exceptional.
Our selfguided tour was a challenge but the backroads of Wellington provided some wonderful scenery for our trip.

“Take your glass to the bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Amazing spot: lovely barn and patio for tastings. You'll wish they stayed open past six because it's the hippest hangout in Wellington bar none. The grass-covered stone bridge past the vines is another great imbibing spot. And the wine is not too shabby, either!
