  • Staff are very knowledgeable about the wines they sell. The wines themselves are excellent and priced fairly for the quality. Although just passing through for a taste, I was very impressed with the facilities. Wife and I just finished a bottle of 2012 Terroir Cache, one of the best reds I've ever tasted. Will definitely visit in the future and highly recommend a visit if you're nearby or passing through.
  • If you are not known as socially elite people do not expect this winery to make you feel overly welcomed or comfortable. We were Wine Club members and attend an event with two guests as permitted in the invitation and RSVP. One of our guests was a former employee of the winery. We arrived and checked in and our guest received a hug from the manager and our guest told the manager she was attending the event as our guest. The event started and the owner arrived saying hello to the small group individually but ignored our guest. A few minute after the owner's arrival the manager asked our guest to step outside and told her that this was a private event. Our guest told her again that she was our guest. This was the same manager that hugged this guest a few minutes early! I responded by talking to the manager then the owner outside the event area. The owner said people had been coming into the event the day before who were not club members or guests and that it was not to center our guest out. A problem easily solved by stick on name tags. The owner blamed the manager for the "mistake" and apologized to my group (at my request) without shaking hands with our guest. The pompous owner "threw his manager under the bus" for what obviously was his deed. Needless to say the Hidden Bench caused us a feeling of being unwelcome and embarrassed. Luckily there are 5 other wineries (Fielding,Weir, Hidden Bench,Angel's Gate,Organized Crime) within a mile with great wine and good customer service that are worth visiting instead.
  • Nice place
  • Wine is pretty good but the tasting fees are definitely not worth the visit and in order to have them waived, you have to buy 3 bottles. Tasting fee alone was $25 which is ridiculous since there is no way I had $25 worth of wine (barely one ounce tastings) and when I purchased one bottle, which was $40, she wouldn't waive the fee. This isn't California and your wine isn't that good compared to many others. It is a nice facility. The prices are on the sheet, which I saw but since it wasn't busy I thought she was offering to pour a bunch without a fee, which they do at so many other places. The staff should have been more upfront and told me that rather than nickle and diming us.
  • Some very nice wines.
