  • Absolutely fantastic wines and a wonderful tasting room. I can't wait to come back!
  • Enjoy a glass of wine that is Organic. We buy a case or more every year! Cant wait to go wine tasting here next weekend!
  • Fantastic service and wine!!
  • Excellent selection of varietals in a sunny, friendly venue; the Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon were my favorites out of the red flight. The Malbec has gentler tannins and is softer than its Argentinian counterparts, but is still enjoyable. If you have time, wander with a glass of your favorite to the sculpture garden adjacent to the tasting room.
  • There are many wineries along Carmel Valley Road within a mile of each other. So picking which to stop is hard if you don't already have a list. We randomly stopped by Heller after Talbott and Bernardus, and it turned out to be a good stop! Heller's tasting has a variety of wines: Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, a Merlot Rose, Pinot Noir, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a late harvest Riesling. Heller is organic, which is nice. Of wines, I really enjoyed the Chenin Blanc (which is rare since I don't normally like white wines), the 2005 Estate Cabernet, and the late harvest Riesling. I've never had a Chenin Blanc but it had a very fragrant and floral smell. It was light and refreshing, with some acidity and some sweetness. It would make for a great picnic wine. The Cabernet was full bodied and complex. Despite being a 2005, it's aging slowly and will get better with time. The Riesling was on the lighter side of a dessert wine and would go very well with some sorbet. If you buy wine, you'll get the tasting fee waived. When we were there, they had a special for a half case of half bottles, which was a pretty good deal.
