  • We really wanted to like this place as the ambience, location and view are stunning however, it does not make up for the lack of service one can expect to receive if you aren't white. 1.) We were charged before our tasting (which is not customary in a tasting room) while we watched as other white couples were not. 2.) The tasting rep told us he had to charge us up front because they "might get busy", "they were old and might forget" insuating that we would be dishonest and walk away without paying. 3.) Each flight the tasting reps hastily poured our glass and moved to the next person, not once taking the time to explain the varietals and tasting notes but instead would proceed to the next patron (again white) and would go into great depths about the vintage of the wine. 4.) The bathrooms were disgusting. Someone had urinated all over the restroom floors and walls and the smell was sickening. It was quite apparent it hadn't been cleaned all day. It was worst than a gas station bathroom. Needless to say we will not be patronizing this establishment again.
  • Good wine, gorgeous setting, friendly staff.
  • Really enjoyed the wine and scenery while visiting. Very peaceful and will definitely be back.
  • Loved the wine and the rolling hills. The owners were fun to talk to.
  • Good Zinfandel, great views.
