  • Went wine tasting there. The ladies were very polite and friendly. We tasted a few wines outside, then moved indoors to chat. We'll definitely return in the future.
  • This is an outstanding winery!! I went here tasting with some friends and ended up signing up for a membership. Great service and great wine! Oh, and the pinot is the best!
  • We love Foxen Wine and we love the staff.. We always have a very pleasant experience here and have for many years. Love all the wines.
  • Very friendly service and interesting wines. There are actually two tasting rooms just minutes apart. We had a 2 for 1 coupon and they let us share a tasting at each location instead using both at one place. The location known as the shack poured Italian varietals and the one down the road served French style wines. This was actually the only winery we visited that included the wine glass as part of your tasting fee. Also, be sure to pick up a temporary anchor tattoo while you're there.
  • The Pinot Noir wines made here from the Santa Maria Valley are amazing.
