  • Megan made our last wine tasting experience in Sonoma memorable and absolutely amazing! She's very knowledgeable about the wines, was able to answer all of our questions, and most importantly was super friendly and engaging throughout our tasting experience. The quality of the wines we tasted was just the cherry on top! We couldn't have picked a better place to end my wine country birthday vacation! Thanks again, Megan! Hope to see you again soon! -Carolina and Kelvin
  • BEST winery tour in Sonoma. Our tour guide was so funny and informative. I highly suggest the full tour and tasting. Worth every penny.
  • Lots of things to see and hear if you take the tour. Gets pretty pricey fast if not carefull. The wine is way too expensive to me!! Easy parking. If you don't pay for tour there is not really much to do - you will be over in 30 min max. 3 stars too little, 4 too much!
  • Your wines are lovely, and most of all... your wines are married to the organic integrity, leaving one to embrace the recompense of that integrity. Respectfully, Maria Wesenberg, of Sarasota, florida.
  • I am underage so I cannot drink. However the tour was very interesting and the location was very nice. The staff was kind and even let me bring my dog into the store. It was only a chihuahua but still, very kind.
