  • Nice winery. Great people, delicious wines. Beautiful views. You can bring a picnic or buy snacks there. Purchase a bottle of wine and enjoy the afternoon! Check the website in advance to see if there is an event going on. In the summer and fall there is often music.
  • Great wine club release parties, patio for picnics, entertainment and views....also friendly staff...and fabulous wines!
  • So enjoy this winery. Wonderful staff.
  • Lavacap makes great wine and has an even more amazing winery. The view is beautiful and recently my wife and I went back to enjoy their updated outdoor seating. The patio area has greatly improved. There is tons of seating of different types (chairs for couples, tables for groups, etc). However, I docked a star (I should really dock it two) because they are "dog friendly". I get they are an animal loving establishment, but we tried to enjoy a quiet glass of wine on a beautiful fall afternoon and just felt like we were at a dog park. Small dogs everywhere, barking, fighting, wrestling. It was a little much for what's supposed to be a pleasant experience. Mix that with drunk people who are not exactly in complete control of the animals and it's just... meh.. Don't let that deter you from trying their wine. It's fabulous.
  • Have not been to Winery yet, have enjoyed their wines on many occasions. One of My Favorites!!
