  • We made an appointment several days in advance to visit the winery. Our designated host was waiting the parking lot for us !! What a great idea and service. We proceeded to skip the tour and go right ...  more »
  • Great tasting. This was our second visit and hopefully next time we will see the new tasting room. Tiffany did a great job in explaining the wines and telling us all about the winery and the process. ...  more »

  • This is a mixed review. STAFF: 2 stars. We had an appointment for 1 pm but arrived about 20 minutes early. We waited at the hostess stand for 5 minutes while staff walked by ignoring us. We then walked around the corner into the tasting room, where 4 or 5 staff looked busy cleaning stemware. Despite a group of 6 people, they largely ignored us until one of us spoke up. When I informed them of our appointment, they said "We'll see you AT 1 pm", emphasizing the AT. No smile. Nothing. We then went onto the patio where another staff member shushed us for being apparently too boisterous. Well, excuuuuse us for speaking. At 1 pm promptly, a certified somm brought us into the private tasting room. Only after 20 minutes of being with our raucous group did the frost thaw from her icey personality and she finally began to warm up to us. Had we not read about the wines and known about Gary Farrell's reputation for winemaking, we would have walked out and this would end the review. Fortunately, for this winery, their products stand head and shoulders above the impenetrable snobbiness of the staff. WINE & FACILITY: 5 stars. There aren't enough superlatives to describe the excellent wines that we tasted and truly enjoyed as part of our private tasting. Each was excellent and more than one stood out as cellar-worthy. We took the high road here and overlooked our rude treatment and went ahead and purchased several bottles. I can only hope that future visitors are given a warmer and more respectful welcoming than was afforded to us. If we return, it will be for the wine alone.
  • Recently had diner in a very good restaurant in Miami, we asked for a light, red, fruity wine. Sommelier recommended Russian River 2012... ho my....!!! I will never thank that guy enough: I almost had an orgasm. :o)).. Seriously, it is an excellent wine, really had a blast, with the food (ravioles), and finished it with a cheese plater..?? (with very good bread) absolutely SUPERB. WIll get some asap. PS: I'm a French guy, I worked in many kitchens, and knows a little about wines.. (it's genetic).
  • Sumptuous Pinot Noir. Great tasting and tour. Knowledgable staff.
  • We enjoyed ourselves so much that we curtailed our itinerary for the day so that we could spend more time here. Lydia, the wine educator, was delightful.
  • Wonderful winery! We hadn't been in quite some time and they now require reservations on the weekends. We hadn't made a reservation, but they weren't busy and quickly set us up a table for tasting. They also offer cheese and charcuterie plates, which are quite tasty. The wines are all wonderful! They are known for their Pinot Noir, but have a tasty Zin as well. And if you are sitting outside, you have the most beautiful view of the rolling hills and vines.
