Wonderful wines. We stopped just in time to get a pizza from the brick oven located on the property. What a wonderful concept and great way to showcase their beautiful wines. All of their wines were wonderful. Hard to choose our favorite. So we just took home some to remember our visit. Do stop it is well worth the trip.

Family (7 of us, all 21+) did the Bell Mountain Ranch Tour & Tasting the last weekend of April 2017. Could not have asked for better weather, and the extraordinary amount of rain California has gotten this year meant that everything was green and there were plenty of wildflowers! The ranch/winery is a beautiful oak hillside/valley near the Russian River,... More

We have attended many wine tastings and visited many vineyards, and I'm happy to say I have learned a lot over the years. The tour of the ranch at Medlock Ames is of a different sort, though. I learned much more about the effects of climate, weather, and topography on winemaking than the mechanics of it. Our tour guide, Carol,... More

We actually went to the Ranch and did the Winery Tour and Tasting (we were not at the tasting room). It rained the day we were there so the tour was a little abbreviated. They did a great job of trying to make sure we saw everything but part of the tour was walking the ranch which was just not... More

Our group of 4 wished we had more time to spend here. We sat outside on the deck and learned the history of Medlock Ames as we were sampling their excellent wines. As the designated driver I was served water for free (not available at all wineries we visited) and was included in the cheese samples served for the rest... More

We came with friends for a tasting and ended up joining so we could get their quarterly. The wines were fantastic. They brought us a nice cheese platter so we could pair with our wines. Emerald did a great job discribing each wine. Very nice tasting. We will be back for our next pick-up.

Hi Paulo, Thank you for reviewing us. We love it when people bring their friends and family to enjoy a glass of wine at our tasting room.

The setting is nice, but we came in the middle of afternoon and outside patio was really crowded. Rather unpleasant crowd with bad manners and attitude. Inside was more laid back. Enjoyed their cab. Won't likely come back, unless in off season...

We took a tour of the winery & grounds. It is located a few miles past the tasting room & a challenge to find but well worth the effort. Stacy was our guide & she was very knowledgable about the whole operation. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour as well as the wines. They also have wonderful olive oil.
