  • Wine was about par for the area. Did not try anything sweet so I can not comment on that. Decor was a little dated but quaint, deck has a great view. Negatives of the visit was the man doing our tasting was very flustered by the crowd. He was slow in getting from customer to customer with non wine related small talk. Also stopped to overexplain to multiple groups of people waiting that they aren't used to crowds and they can't accommodate them for a few more minutes and on and on. The crowd was maybe 30 people and if he had focused on pouring and talking wine with the customers he had he could have turned over the tasting groups twice as fast and still given a good experience. Wasn't bad just out of his element. Then when we were told we couldn't buy a bottle to sit out on the patio and enjoy with the 4 of us, and that they only sold by the glass (to maximize profits no doubt) we decided we had seen enough. Probably a good experience during a slower time but with all of the other options we probably won't be back.
  • Wonderful place with an awesome view. Highly recommended!
  • Very good wines!! Beautiful location
  • First I should caveat that we went off-season so there was just my wife, me, the vineyard cat and Tony (owner). So, from the standpoint of customer service and attention, we were incredibly spoiled. Next, the wine itself is very good. Most of my wine tasting experience is from Napa and Oregon where bottles are often $80+ and tasting fees are upwards $25/ea. the tasting fee at Contessa Is only $5 and the quality of the wines exceeded expectations. The $30 cab franc is exceptional and rivals bottles I've tried at a much higher price point. Then you get into even more reasonably priced bottles and the complexity and smoothness remains. We left completely satisfied and with 3/4 of a case of wine that we would serve even our most picky guest. We will be back not only for the wine but for the conversation and the view. End to end, a great experience and I would recommend Contessa to anyone looking for a great wine and a comfortable tasting experience.
  • Amazing!!! My wife and i stopped by chance.... So glad we did. Wine was amazing and the Tony was great!! Thank you for making our visit the best ever!!
