We love a good pinot and A. Briggs has consistently offered the best from several appellations in the region for years. Nominal fee is waived with purchase. Liberal wine club participation. Small tasting room with lots of character and info of the area.

This is a great tasting room with friendly and engaging staff. The wine selection is good and the tasting guide very helpful, but the whole experience is made so much more homely by the attentions of Kiefer the dog.

Excellent wines, friendly tasting room. If you go give Kiefer a pet for us, he's a rad tasting room dog with a good rescue story.
