First off the “California champagne” tasting was a great experience. We’re not ones for tours, however, this tour was excellent and the tour guide was informative. Great experience here!

This winery has such a rich history. Be sure to take the tour. The tasting is free which is unusual. I tried wines that were not available in grocery stores. There were some pleasant surprises. Their still Chardonnay is excellent. A very pleasant way to...More
