  • Nice location and a very cozy tasting area. It was quiet when we visited and the owner have us a great walk through of the wines. Has a nice outdoor fire which could be fun later in the fall.
  • Ken is awesome! We had a huge group come in towards the end of the day and loved the atmosphere and conversation. Thanks for a great wine-tasting!
  • Hermosa Vineyards...where do we begin!? The environment was so relaxed and inviting. The owner, Kenn, is no stranger to the wine craft. He was taught how to make wine as a child by Italians. I asked an endless amount of questions and Kenn patiently answered them in ways that a non-winemaker could understand. He grows 17 different varietals and the whole process is done on site: picking the grapes, crushing the grapes, the fermentation(s), bottling, and labeling. In fact, Kenn engineered a machine that conveys the empty bottles, inserts argon, fills the bottle with wine, corks the bottle, seals it and then labels it. It packages up to 12 bottles/min and Kenn designed it himself! My attention was captured by the Chardonnay, because I'm picky with my Chardonnay, but Hermosa Vineyard's oak fermented Chardonnay was just right. Each of the wines we tried were so unique and we especially loved the Cherry Dessert Wine (even bought a bottle). His staff were exceptional as well! The two ladies working were engaged with all of their guests and their knowledge of wine was apparent. However we were most impressed by his willingness to show us around his vineyard, allow a barrel tasting, and show us how the grapes are crushed. He also allowed us to try wines that weren't on the tasting menu. It was my first time trying Viognier, and the nose was spectacular, lots of floral notes. I'm bringing a bottle of that home next time as well! Now it's your turn to experience Hermosa Vineyards firsthand!
  • My husband and I stopped by Hermosa on our wine trip this past weekend and this was our favorite! Ken is a one-man operation and his wine is wonderful. He has bold reds, crisp whites, and our favorite was the rose! He is very knowledgeable and answers any questions you have with passion and detail. By far, our favorite stop! We can't wait to visit him again.
  • Unbelievable wines and a wonderful host!
