  • For those looking for a good winery to visit in the Placerville, CA area, I can not recommend a winery any more highly than this one. The Boeger Winery has very good red wines that are bold and comple...  more »

  • Boeger is a once great winery that has gone downhill. My first few tastings there years ago were very enjoyable, the wines delicious, and the staff friendly and informative about its wines. In recent years however, I have had bad experiences with its customer service and feel that its wines are average at best. The last three times I visited the winery I turned around and walked out because of the poor customer service. The winery that was a longstanding "must stop" winery for me has now been crossed off my winery list. What a shame.
  • Nice winery. Delicious wine. Much better prices for the quality than the Napa wineries.
  • Pretty setting. Good wine for a good price. Tasting prices are very reasonable. A nice alternative to the more famous yet more pricey Nappa Valley.
  • First and last time at Boeger for my family and I. We decided to stop by on 10-22-17 for a wine tasting and to purchase a few bottles. We are very familier with the wine but have never had the chance to visit. We elected to purchase the upgraded reserve tastings and eagerly awaited our first pour. this is where the problems started... The tasting bottles all contained a 1oz pour “stopper”, having experience in the restaurant industry I am familiar with these devices and have no problem when they are utilized properly. The issue I had with this situation is the bartenders did not wait for the full pour, she would continually fill 2 glasses without resetting the “stopper”, resulting in a 1/2 oz pour per glass. We attempted to bring this up but were quickly assured, and very rudely I might add, that it was an accurate “1oz” pour and that other wineries are too liberal with their pours resulting in Boegers appearing smaller...Our experience further declined as we felt “black balled” by the staff who offered little to no explanations about the wine they were pouring after we raised our previous concerns. Due to this and the fact we could not accurately taste the wine we did not purchase any additional items as was our intention. Needless to say we are very dissappointed with the experience and will avoid this product in the future. With so much competition in the local area and Napa being a short trip away I will be bringing my business to wineries who value their product and its patrons.
  • This was once a regular stop for my wife and I. Our last visit we discovered they now charge a tasting fee per person, but were told it could be applied to a wine purchase if we chose to buy a bottle of wine. They made us pay upfront and immediately before anything was poured. We were strictly limited to only 6 tiny tastings and they were poured into tiny glasses. Seriously, not even enough to get a good taste of the wine. They counted the tastings as if they were gold. They never spent any time explaining or discussing the wines. We decided to cut some of our loses of our tasting fees by purchasing a bottle of wine. Upon payment we were credited for only ONE tasting, not the two we paid for in advance and were told "only one credit per purchase". Sneaky! With so many better wineries in the Apple Hill area that offer free tasting, nicer people and better wines, there is no need to pay fees and be swindled. My wife and I, and our friends will never go back.
