“Wines were OK, service was average”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

In fairness we arrived around 4.40pm, the place was empty and we could not see any staff around, browsed used their facilities and were almost on the point of walking out when we spotted a guy in the back office and called out.......
Let the wine tasting begin. It was OK, we actually did buy a bottle of Sangiovese which was very nice indeed. Service was OK but not that upbeat and having just come from another winery that was so upbeat it felt a tad too low key!.
Big tasting room and shop. Again it was dark so unable to comment on location / vistas etc.
A little taken aback at the $8 tasting fee, this seemed quite steep.

“Consistent quality”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

My friend has been in the CC wine club for a few years now and I have tasted a number of their wines through him. We we able to visit the winery a few weeks ago and taste a range of their current offerings. Consistently high quality. Nice tasting facility, too. Recommended.

“Its all about the Wine”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I had a good experience at this winery - they shared several of their selections during our tasting. They offered re-taste and helped us figure out which ones were going home. They have some amazing red wines...

“thank you”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

During our 2-week stay in Washington and Oregon we visited approximately 100 wineries. As we had to transport it back to Germany we only bought 6 bottles - one of them at Cougars because of their extraordinary quality. We really enjoyed our visit and can only recommend this winery!
