“Such special wines at 8th Generation”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

I recently stopped in to see the fine folks at 8th Generation as they had just released their latest vintage of their Pinot Meunier Rosé (2011). This was a real stand-out wine, in my opinion last year, so I was eager to try this year's vintage. I also picked up a couple bottles of their sparkling rose, which I also really enjoyed!

8th Generation is a great winery, producing very special wines and the owners/winemakers Stefanie and Bernd are delightful!

During wine festival times, they do wine and chocolate or wine and cheese pairings, which are lovely!

“Nice wine, no big surprises”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

I was on a day of wine touring for a girls weekend and we stopped first at the 8th Generation Vineyard. There is a tasting fee here of $4. We got to try several of the wines though. Because we had a large group they brought us into the cellar room for our tasting. Most of the wines were crowd-pleasers for the group but I didn't end up purchasing anything here. The staff were friendly. Overall, not a bad stop.
