The winery primarily produces varieties of pinot noir, which you can sample in a fun, informal setting among the oak barrels, then pick up a bottle or two to take home.

  • Great place in a beautiful setting. Loved the wines and the sommelier was friendly and extremely helpful . 
  • Returned to Chard farm and were not disappointed! Great wines and lovely knowledgable cellar door host. Looking forward to sampling our purchases! 
  • Fantastic wine! Fantastic front man! They know their wine. I loved visiting here. Great information. Friendly
  • Great wines and nice to try their unoaked Chardonnay which is really good! It's not just about the reds! But don't be an idiot and try park on the road there so you can take a photo...
  • Even if the wines were terrible, this one is worth it just for the incredible cliffside drive. Luckily the wines are fantastic. I have already recommended this place, and will do so again.
  • It was okay. Views were fantastic, wines were good, service was okay. I did highly approve of how they gave the tasting fees to the hospice - a lovely gesture. Don't think I'd visit again though.
  • Friendly people. Tasting "donation" seems high at $10 but at least they donate it to charity. Nice selection of wines but quite expensive. The road in its interesting, you expect Wil-e-coyote to chase Road Runner past any second. Great views. Picturesque location overlooking AJ Hackett Bungee.
