  • We really enjoyed the wine -- as evidenced by the 8 bottles or so we left with -- and the company of John, the owner. If you need any information on the upper, upper, upper crust of British society.....  more »

  • Great staff. The sweet girl that served us was amazing unfortunately I didn't catch her name. Ower made us feel welcome and spoke to everyone as in he knew us all personally. Wine was wounderful. Love love love this place.
  • Wonderful wines and staff, owners, friends.... the drive was beautiful as well. I will return
  • I rarely ever post reviews, but this is one that was worth posting. Hopefully I will spare someone else from such a bad experience! Staff was very rude! $10 for 4 tastings and the gal made sure that they were thimble size pours. When the gal tried to give me the dregs of a "2 day old bottle" - i.e. the bottom of the bottle, I politely refused that tasting. Apparently my sophistication offended her and on the last pour she made sure it was even less than a thimble! In fact, I barely experienced the tasting because it was such a small amount at the bottom of my glass - couldn't smell the bouquet, enjoy the color, or savor the wine. Of course, the "members" that came in after us were doled out some pretty generous pours - almost 1/3 of a glass!! Winery staff should never assume their customers. I may be a wine critic, a journalist, or even a very affluent person willing to buy a couple cases, but she sealed the deal by making a judgement and not treating my sister and I with the same service and respect she treated others with. If you're not a member, don't waste your time and money! I had much better treatment in Napa Valley (and other wineries) and the wine was worth so much more! Oh well, Sutcliffe winery loses! Not me...other than $20 for two tastings. Wish I could give a negative star!!
  • Great little winery. Skip the rest and come here. Beautiful views and very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
  • Really awesome views. Casual wine tasting. The hostess seemed a bit busy so we did not get to chat much, but still an enjoyable experience.
