  • Beautiful winery. Didnt get to spend as much time as we would have liked. Will definitely go back and give a better chance. We were in too much of a hurry 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Found the customer service off the mark. Went for and event and they seemed to be surprised that people turned up. They were not able to create an ambiance for the customers. Wine was over priced. Not worth the money.
  • AMAZING! Great private patio for an afternoon glass of wine!
