  • Pros: A nice spot on the western slope of the valley, seated at shaded, distanced tables. Cons: Everything else. Really. First the deliberate confusion over the actual owner, which is The Wine Group.....  more »
  • I was at this winery a month ago and had a wonderful experience. Not only is the winery really beautiful, but the staff was very caring and helpful. We were three little old ladies and the staff took such great care as one of us was handicapped. I cannot say enough accolades for the staff that helped us here and we had such a wonderful day.

  • My family loved the tour. It was very interesting to learn about their methods. The wines were great too! Beautiful views.
  • Wonderful experience. If you are into the organic/vege/healthy/environmentally conscious/biodynamic stuff you have to go there. The employee will drive you through the winery, describe the history of the winery, their process of making wine and some other details. It’s 30$ per person but worth it. They have now 25th anniversary.
  • Beautiful estate, when a bit massive. Very friendly and knowledgable people. Good wines, but certainly not living up to their prices. But may be I should not compare with France, Switzerland or Austria?
  • This was our first winery visit on our first visit to Sonoma and we were very pleased with the friendliness and knowledgeability of the staff here. They took the time to explain the wines and since we joined the wine club the tasting a and tours were complimentary. Highly recommend you stop here!
