  • We visit wineries frequently and this is our second time at Cava. We were very disappointed with our total experience. We sat outside since it was a beautiful day. It took 20 minutes for our waitress ...  more »
  • We love Cava, the food is good and they have live entertainment on weekends. The wine is okay, they mostly ship grapes in. The wine tasting is fun, we usually stick with the sangria.  more »

  • I visited this winery on 5/7/17 with my wife, and Im not going to beat around the bush here; I'm disappointed. My wife decided on the tasting sampler of the white wines, while I went with one of their red wine tasting samples. The wine was good but thats about the high point of our visit. First of all the sample size was very inconsistent, it looked like the waitress poured random amounts from the bottle in a rush just to get them out. Secondly, while there we decided to order some food and decided on the pair and gorgonzola flatbread pizza. It took over 25 minutes for a flatbread pizza to come out. There were no more than 10 tables sat(I'm probably being generous using the number 10), so being busy as an excuse would have been a lie. After we finally got the pizza I was even more upset, the pair pieces were places on the pizza in the appearance of having been tossed on without any care; I literally had to take pieces of pair off other slices to get a bit containing both pair and gorgonzola. My wife wanted to get a bottle of their peach wine and their white sangria. After watching my waitress talking to who appreared to be a manager for 15 minites I gave up and gave the order sheet to another waitress to give to her and ask for our bill. Another 15 minutes later the waitress finally comes back with my wine and bill. After waiting FAR too long for her to pick up my credit card I had to walk up to her to have her run my card so I could finally leave. I got home and took the wine out of the bag only to realize my waitress gave me 2 white sangria bottles. The peach wine was meant for today (mothers days). Some may say I should have checked the bag before I left, but for a grown woman to get my order wrong when it was written on a winery provided order sheet is ridiculous. That was my first and last trip to Cava Winery, and I will NOT be recommending it to anyone at anytime.
  • My husband and I came here for a wine and wings festival. The lines for food were crazy, but the wine was delicious. They have a lot of sweet, fruit wines, great on a hot summer day. The Raspberry White Zinfandel is my favorite, not too sweet, not too fruit, just right.
  • I enjoy wines from around the world. This is a 5 star local winery!
  • wine and atmosphere are very good, but the music and entertainment is always the same boring pop type stuff. Need to change it up with other genres
  • Great views and fun for groups.
