  • This ranch was the first place we visited as part of a guided Wine Tour in Napa/Sonoma Valley and I can not stress how fabulous it was. The winemakers were extremely knowledgeable and excited to share...  more »
  • THIS PLACE WAS FANTASTIC! Our guide Debbie took us through the Vinyard and taught me more about the grape growing process than I could imagine. Very smart woman I highly recommend this vinyard!!!  more »
  • Solid wines, nice cave tour, friendly staff and great grounds. A worthwhile stop. Plan to spend at least 1-1.5 hours here due to the length of the tour!  more »

  • Beautiful place to sit outside! The wine was delicious. The service was great. Very chill experience.
  • It was ok. Staff was a little stuffy. Nice views though.
  • The best pinot noir of Sonoma! !
  • Beautiful location and good facilities. The wine was much weaker than other wineries in the region and the cost and pouring sizes were also inferior to its plentiful competition. One to miss if your schedule is crammed.
  • We were trying to stop for wine tasting on a whim as we were in the area visiting a friend. The winery was a little routy but it was later in the day and often tour busses take over on the weekends. The offending group was moving on, so we decided to stay for a tasting. We got situated and were carded. Handing my card back to me and the server said "thank you young lady." I'm 33, young, but older than him and most of people in the room. I have seen waiters try to charm my grandmother by calling her young lady. I shook off this pale attempt at humor. It would not be notable but he persisted in calling be young lady until the end of the tasting saying it no fewer than 15 times. He then tried to school me about diluting my pallet with water. He said do it between glasses but not sips. I was actually switching wines as we were revisiting Pinots to decide which I would like to purchase. When he continued to go on about the water, like insisted, I explained this and he reacted "we are here to teach, young lady." The server was a tool, but the wine - the wine was good. The tastings were over priced, the atmosphere was similar to a frat house. Unless that is what you are going for, I'd skip it. Or maybe make a reservation and avoid the self-important former wrestling scholarship holding, Econ major who graduated from Cal. We never exchanged names but he did share a bit about himself with this young lady.
