  • My wife and I went here for a wine tasting and tour. We lucked out in that we scheduled 2 spots on a group tour but were the only ones to sign up so it became a private one. We are not really wine drinkers so we weren't sure what to expect. Our tour guide, Bill, was amazing and extremely knowledgeable about the whole process. He broke it down so even we felt like experts leaving the tour. The tasting was definitely the highlight though as it's in a beautiful private room with great views of the grape fields. We got a little tipsy off the samples as you get 5-6 pours depending on your selection but there were plenty of areas to relax, take in the scenic views, and visit to let the wine sit a little. The only disappointment was that it was a black out date for the dinner service and that you have to schedule a dinner experience well in advance. It gives us something to look forward to when we come back though.
  • Stopped in for a wine tasting. The selection was great and the Bubbly Cherry was our favorite of all the wineries on the peninsula. The views are great and they have a solar farm with live generation stats on a monitor.
  • Beautifully placed building atop a large hill next to the ocean. Went in for a wine tasting and was given six tastings and a glass for a reasonable price. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly but the wines were not all the impressive. Many lacked any depth but the scenery makes up for it.
  • Great experience with the staff. They provided great recommendations for wine during our tasting. The wine was great although some bottles were a bit pricey. The view was impeccable.
  • Beautiful scenery. Excellent wine. Everything was fantastic! I would highly recommend this place and can't wait to come back.
