I have long recognized that the success of a product often has nothing to do with how good the product is. Valdez wines are terrific. His Syrah is wonderful as are many of his other wines. Unfortunately the tasting room is as dull as can...More

Neat place with friendly staff. We talked to the owner and got to hear about the history of the wines. Enjoyed the pinot here.

Great story of success from immigrant to wine owner. Family run tasting room that is efficient and friendly. Wines were okay - and a little pricey. I thought the Chardonnay was the best - and nice California style chard - but at $35 a bottle...More

Valdez wines are never bad and often spectacular. The 2009 Syrah is very special. It is one of the best Syrah's I have ever had and I have been into wine for 40 plus years. For those not aware Robert Parker has rated some of...More

They were only pouring certain wines, didn't care they we were there to try their Zin's. Not overly friendly, drab tasting room.

The wines were outstanding, and a very good QPR. The St. Peters Church Zinfandel particularly stood out. The Valdez daughters were maning the tasting room during our visit and they were engaging and welcoming. Highly recommend for the wines and the experience.

You are not coming here for the View. You are not coming here for the picnic area. You are coming here to taste wines off the charts, and feel the family passion for wine making. You are coming here to buy wine to drink today...More
