  • The service was great! We took two bottles home with us and really enjoyed chatting with the staff! It was easy to access from our air B&B location and set us up nicely to continue on our road trip to...  read more »
  • Friendly, knowledgeable staff, inviting tasting room, intelligent, hospitable family owners and most importantly amazing wine...especially the DRY Riesling and DRY Gewurtztraminer. 
  • In the continuation of the story about our travels wine houses of California can't tell about this vinarki! It seems to me this is the only place in California, where grape ripens from which subsequently made this wonderful drink called RIESLING RIESLING! I always thought that Riesling make only in Germany, and in the Valley of the Moselle. But prodegustirovav wine, I realized that in California you can find favorite wine! Thank you very much for the excellent tasting! For us, even made an exception/learn that we from Russia/sold box wines at a special price! All lovers of Riesling RIESLING advise to come here!

  • Good wine and an awesome outdoor area for tasting on a sunny day.
  • The Claiborne & Churchill Winery is a "must" for visitors to San Luis Obispo. It's located in the Edna Valley about two miles from SLO on Highway 227. Over the years, it has maintained its high quality wine and at an affordable price. The tasting room staff is pleasant and knowledgeable.
  • My favorite winery, move the Gewurtztraminer
  • I'm giving three stars because the wine was exactly what they said it was: wines crafted in the Asatian style. Although I have yet to visit Alsace-Lorraine, I will take their word for it. We were not at all pleased with the tasting room staff or service. We were waited on by a young lady who said she was the wine maker's sister, but she had NO clue about the wines or how to serve tasters for that matter. My husband paid for a reserve tasting for himself (3 wines) and a regular tasting for me (5 wines). Although he paid more money, she acted like she was doing him a big favor, and actually asked him if he was 'planning on buying any wine' before she would let him taste one of the wines on my list. To top it off, we are part time tasting employees ourselves. We got a 30% industry discount and Tolosa (and usually do get some even small discount everywhere else in the county), but they charged us full price. We graciously support local wineries, are regular consumers and traders of wine with tasting room staff. We bought our first and only three bottles of C &C. If I get a hankering for some dry riesling, I will go out and buy a bottle of Bonny Doone from Monterey County.
  • I love this winery! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and more importantly the wines are amazing! I have been to about 15 wineries in the area and they are by far my favorite! Also, the wines are really affordable! I love the small business feel of the place and think they do an amazing job!
