  • Poor service and subpar wines compared to other wineries in the area. The sign out front and wine bottle labels are kind of cool. They sell T-shirts and other souvenirs as well. You may like those. Yo...  more »
  • We always stop here. It's just a fun place. The staff is really nice & knowledgeable of their wine. The wine is reasonably priced.  more »
  • Just a store front for wine tasting and sales of more than wine. Not an authentic winery to tour. We stopped because of the name--which, I'm sure, is what draws people in. The wines were all too sweet...  more »

  • This winery is more than just an entertaining name. They have a variety of good wines here and a great price on top of that. You can get any of the wines for under 20 bucks. It may be called the 'Pompous Ass' but the staff and owners are anything but. The port is my favorite, and it comes in a 750 ml bottle, not that dinky one that port usually comes in.
  • We were initially attracted to this winery's whimsical name and presentation. However, upon entering and approaching the tasting bar, we were ignored and nobody came to us for several minutes (granted, they were busy..) When we were finally acknowledged, we saw a couple of the servers whispering and looking at us. A young woman came over and said, "We have a group coming over to this side of the bar, could you please move over to the other side of the bar and we'll be right over." So, we spent about a minute and a half picking our way over to the other side of the bar through a tightly packed area between a few tables and the bar. (Definitely not enough room to pass when the winery is busy). When we finally made our way to an open spot on the other side of the sampling bar, we were ignored again for several minutes. We left after another small group approached the bar beside us and was immediately served with a smile.
  • If nothing else.. you have to love the name.... wine was tasty too
  • Not the best wines but novel idea and wine names, good for a photo op or gifts haha.
  • The Pompous Ass tasting room is on the "wrong side" of 14, so there is no view of the lake, and just a tiny view of the valley. We got to pick five wines to taste and I selected the two dry reds and a port-style wine, and some sweet whites. The wines were good and the tasting room staff could answer some questions about the wine, but not the hard ones (What level of toast do you get in your barrels?).
