  • This seemed like a popular place. The parking lot was small and full. The views are gorgeous and there is plenty of picnic space. It was family friendly as well as dog friendly. Unfortunately I did not like the wine much but honestly I would go back just to have a beautiful picnic! Tastings were $5.
  • The wines from top to bottom were excellent. All were well crafted and priced appropriately. The Petite Sirah was the best I've had in years. Beautiful picnic area with amazing views of the vineyard and Sierra Foothills. I felt like I was back in Tuscany.
  • Great summer concert series with an incredible view! The wines are excellent quality at a reasonable price. Insider tip: They close at 8pm for these events.
  • Love love love Lava Cap! Nice staff, great wine, wonderful view!
  • I really appreciated thed fact that the server seemed to take great pride in her wines and providing a positive experience. She even revised our bill when we shared that we were staying at a local b and b that Lava Cap had a relation with. My only recommendation is providing more shade umbrellas out on the patio to maximize viable seating options on the typically hot and sunny days. On the day of my visit there were 10 tables for seating but approximately 3 shade umbrellas for the tables.
